Netherlands-based ULU B.V. enters Agreement with SAP to Accelerate Cloud-Based Vehicle-Centric Services
Amsterdam – March 1, 2017 — ULU B.V., a technology and service provider to the automotive industry, today announced a new agreement with SAP to provide mobility-related services via the SAP® Vehicles Network solution.
Through the agreement with SAP, ULU can deliver a new breadth of mobility-related services and solutions to their users, including fueling and parking. SAP Vehicles Network facilitates vehicle-related services, for example, enabling drivers to share data from the Internet of Things (IoT), activate gas pumps, pay at the pump, reserve parking, open off-street parking gates and pay for on-street parking from the car through a mobile wallet or app. ULU provides connected mobility and telematics to businesses such as fleets, leasing companies, insurance and automotive dealerships.
“We are pleased to work with SAP to enrich our platform offering with the capabilities of SAP® Vehicles Network, and deliver new services to our users in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom,” said Christian Kerssens, CEO of ULU.
SAP Vehicles Network harnesses the power of SAP HANA® Cloud Platform for the Internet of Things and offers companies the opportunity to create new mobility services and apps for consumer use. It improves the way drivers can benefit from mobile and geo-location services. This end-to-end digital mobile user experience can cover the entire trip, helping drivers before and after the journey as well. SAP Vehicles Network also allows app providers and automotive companies an opportunity to gain access to tens of thousands of mobile payment-enabled parking garages and gas stations in key markets. As a result, companies can improve the driver and passenger’s digital experience by using mobile wallets and third-party apps for an integrated in-vehicle experience.
The onboarding of ULU, an existing start-up in the connected car space, will help further enhance the SAP Vehicles Network value proposition and offer end users next-generation mobility services.
ULU powers next-generation mobility. As a Telematics Service Provider we are committed to deliver best-in-class technology to enable new business models for our customers.
