PTOLEMUS Ranks INVERS and SkedGo as the Most Advanced Mobility Platform Providers Worldwide


PTOLEMUS Consulting Group has announced the winners of its global ranking of mobility platform suppliers.

Mobility platform providers, also named “mobtechs”, offer cloud-based software solutions to mobility and transport operators.

PTOLEMUS’ ranking evaluates two mobtech categories:

  • Transport platform providers (TPPs), which serve a single transport operator (single or multimode) such as Keolis or Transport for London,
  • Mobility platform providers (MPPs), which aggregate multiple operators and modes on their platform.

The headline winner for the TPP category is Germany-based INVERS. Other highly ranked TPPs include Ridecell and Vulog, two companies notable for their pioneering work in providing platforms for car and ride sharing companies.

Australia-based SkedGo is the global winner in the MPP category. Moovit and Fluidtime were also ranked highly. The winning companies in this category offer a large variety of services and have integrated a large number of transport operators on their platform, which allows them to accumulate large transit datasets.

The companies are among 17 vendors analysed and ranked in the Mobility Platform Suppliers handbook, the first in-depth global survey of cloud software vendors specialised in mobility.

Alongside the supplier profiles, the handbook also details the ecosystem and value chain for the evolving Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) segment, as well as the 6 integration levels required to offer a complete MaaS solution.

Factors underlying the supplier ranking included:

  • The company’s experience and length of time in the market,
  • The scalability and geographical reach of their solution,
  • In the case of MPPs, the number of operators they have integrated into their solution.

A more detailed description of the ranking methodology together with the full ranking results are available in the Mobility Platform Suppliers handbook. An abstract can be downloaded here.
