Mobility services and autonomous driving

Redefining industry limits

Consumer behavior is changing significantly due to digitalization, connectivity, and the rise of the sharing economy. Digital mobility platforms already provide individual mobility beyond your own vehicle. The maxim “using instead of owning” is increasingly popular in metropolitan areas in particular.

The technological progress of autonomous driving is creating completely new forms of car interior design. When the driver becomes a mere passenger, new revenue and profit sources are opened up in the car, ranging from entertainment via productivity applications to fitness offerings. Our expert team of consultants makes these trends transparent to you and helps you in successfully handling the challenges your company faces:

  • Determining the strategic focus of your company
  • Building up competences, identifying and establishing value-generating partnerships beyond the classic industry limits
  • Integrating new business units into the organization and processes, and ensuring target-orientied business steering and management
