Business Need

VANMOOF wanted to include GPS connectivity in its e-bike to help combat bike theft and map commuter routes. The company needed a connectivity solution that would allow stolen bikes to be tracked, anywhere in the world.

Solution

VANMOOF uses Vodafone Global SIMs, integrated in the bike frames, to provide connectivity for all its e-bikes. It means VANMOOF can manage all SIMs from the Vodafone Managed IoT Connectivity Platform, with price consistency, for bikes shipped anywhere in the world. Vodafone connectivity, and the Global SIMs’ ability to roam to a secondary network if needed, makes for a more robust tracking solution.

Business Benefits

  • Enables a robust bike tracking solution, combating bike theft
  • Ensures global connectivity redundancy from one SIM, managed off one platform, simplifying worldwide go-to-market
  • Boosts marketing and brand credibility, partnering with a global communications leader
