Smove.City has launched its first self-service electric bike service in Kortrijk, Belgium, using Fifteen's (previously Smoove and Zoov) All-in-One white-label solution for operators. The Belgian startup is likely to use this blueprint to roll out similar schemes across Belgium and, indeed, Europe.

The first 100% electric offer in Kortrijk

Smove.City will offer Kortrijk, a city of nearly 80,000 inhabitants, a fleet of electric bikes that can be accessed 24/7 via a smartphone app. Over the past few decades, Kortrijk has transitioned from a major industrial capital to a town focused on the service sector. With an all-electric service, Smove.City aims to get as many citizens as possible onto saddles, regardless of age or fitness. Several shared mobility services have already emerged in Kortrijk, so there is little doubt that this new electric option will be adopted quickly by the population.

The mobile app allows users to locate, reserve and then unlock any available electric bike in the city - and payments are made securely through the application. Once in the saddle, the user is automatically accompanied by electric assistance tailored to their speed, thanks to a torque sensor located in the pedals, and they can also take full advantage of in-app GPS guidance to get to their destination as simply as possible.

Spark magic with turnkey solutions

To launch their self-service electric bikes, Smove.City has chosen Fifteen's All-in-One offer, which includes:

  • Electric bikes
  • A branded user app
  • Fleet management tools for operations managers and field agents
  • An analytics platform to understand service usage and improve performance

Fifteen works with operators with varying needs. Partners can seamlessly integrate electric bikes into their existing platforms (Pony, E-Vélobleu Nice), use Fifteen’s fleet management and analytics tools and white-label user apps (Bloom, Smove.City).

Constantin Vermoere, Founder of Smove.City:

Fifteen is the ideal partner because of the quality of their support, and the total mastery of everything hardware and software.
