MWC: SAP Partners with Concur, Hertz, Nokia and Mojio on New Connected Vehicle Technology

By Ken Briodagh February 27, 2017

SAP has announced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona a new Connected Transportation technology designed to make life easier for drivers and rental car users through the Internet of Things (IoT). It has been built in collaboration with Concur Technologies, Hertz and Nokia.

A part of the SAP Leonardo portfolio, the new SAP Vehicles Network solution will create an intelligent, automated experience from car rental to parking and fueling location and payment, to integrated navigation and expense management for business travelers, according to the annoucement. SAP also announced that Mojio, the connected vehicle platform and app provider for Deutsche Telekom and T-Mobile USA, has joined the SAP Vehicles Network and will provide parking and fueling through its app in the United States and Europe.

SAP Vehicles Network, built on SAP Cloud Platform, is designed to enable participating network companies to provide mobility services to drivers and passengers. Concur, Hertz, SAP and other members of the Nokia-founded IoT Community, a worldwide ecosystem of companies collaborating on the development of innovative IoT solutions, drove the development of the connected rental car experience. Nokia provided its Intelligent Management Platform for All Connected Things (IMPACT). Hertz is evaluating the opportunity to integrate travel and itinerary planning, along with in-car personalization, through its customer apps as part of an elevated car-rental experience. With the connected car prototype, business travelers can automate route guidance through Concur TripLink integration with other Concur solutions in addition to accessing seamless trip reporting capabilities for all travel-related expenses, including parking and fueling transactions. Mojio's cloud integration with SAP Vehicles Network takes the guesswork out of parking, enabling drivers to plan and reserve a parking spot based on calendar events or search, as well as to find and pay for a spot in real time based on the connected vehicle's location.

“With leading partners like Hertz and Nokia and new customers like Mojio, SAP is delivering new levels of value for businesses and end consumers based on SAP Cloud Platform, SAP Leonardo and tight integration with Concur solutions,” said Dr. Tanja Rueckert, EVP, IoT and Digital Supply Chain, SAP. “SAP Vehicles Network puts the end consumer in the driver's seat by transforming the vehicle into the ultimate digital wallet and making car rental into a seamless, intelligent experience.”
