Competition is a celebrated part of our culture. The existence of diverse mobility management platforms is of value to both end-users and those purchasing a system for their Country, State/Province, City/Town, Region, Organization, University/College, TMA/TMO or group. Mobility Management platforms should be selected with the same level of care and due diligence that apply to other business-critical software solutions – it’s no longer a decision made lightly based on friendships or marketing.
The cost of a platform is only a small portion of the total cost that goes into promoting sustainable travel options. Staff time, marketing, marketing materials, training, events, and custom integration are all key elements that make the decision on the core platform of such critical importance. You’re selecting a system that has to be at the core of your TDM program for years, so take the time to dig deeper into what vendors are offering to ensure they have the technology to meet your needs.
Each potential purchaser of a mobility platform will select the system that best meets their functional needs and desired direction for their outreach efforts for the next 3-5 years. The chart below was prepared to better identify functional differences between systems. Beware of vendors who say that functionality is ‘coming’ – these systems are getting extremely complicated and new integrated functionality takes time! So select a system that meets your technical, functional needs NOW.
