VEDIA SHARE - Nokia Car-Rental Pilot Project
Vedia Share is a pilot project for Nokia Open Ecosystem Network where Nokia seeks ways to use resources in the most efficient way and make things easier for Nokia travellers. The Espoo pilot aims to provide convenient and competitive solution for Nokia travellers that require short term car rental.
This Q4/2017 project offers new short term car rental service for Nokia employees only at Nokia Espoo site with five VW vehicles.
The Vedia Share mobile Android application allows Nokia travellers to reserve, use and pay the vehicles.
The vehicle remote management is made with the OTAkeys solution – see the user experience video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dPOkn5voa8
Short term rentals are made with hourly pricing up to 4 hours, whereafter no charge until 24 hours is spent. All vehicles are parked on dedicated slots at back of Kilo parking hall bottom floor.
