Movesion Luxembourg is a smart-mobility startup offering to employers an innovative software that allows companies to know, analyze, visualize, and model their employees’ mobility tendencies. The software is useful for companies wishing to reduce mobility costs, increase employees’ quality of life, and to develop Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

So what is it?
It’s an online software called Mobility Manager that automatically collects data about employee mobility. It can generate maps and indicators that help create knowledge and paint a picture to help the corporate team envision what’s happening in employees’ lives between their homes and the company doorstep.
Naturally, with the metrics mentioned above, any wise manager would try to reduce costs, improve employee experience or use the information to reduce emissions created from travel. The roadblock? Mobility is not a vacuum. Any change carries a certain amount of risk, and even good-will decision could render the situation worse.
“The University is actively working with Movesion to find solutions. François’ research will now be used to pinpoint how Mobility Manager can influence the Luxembourgish market.”
Enter Mobility Manager’s simulation function. A company can actually run simulations online to see what affects a given change would have on the target indicator. If s/he wants to reduce cost, there’s a test for that. If s/he wants to reduce time spent in travel by providing travel vouchers, there’s a test for that. If the s/he wants to reduce emissions with a new plan, there’s a simulation for that.
In other words, companies can increase their chances of coming out on the winning side of a mobility improvement plan.
But how did Movesion get to Luxembourg?
When François Sprumont was a PhD candidate at the University of Luxembourg, he worked closely with professor Francesco Viti on mobility management. When they realized the potential for the Mobility Manager product, the two brainies put their knowledge to the test in collaboration with the University Transport Officer. They found that Movesion, an originally Italian company, was the solution. The University is actively working with Movesion to find solutions. François’ research will now be used to pinpoint how Mobility Manager can influence the Luxembourgish market.
Time will tell what companies take advantage of this technology!
