Road transport is critical for many organisations within the UK. So it’s hardly surprising that mobile solutions are such a growth area.
For organisations though, ensuring that operations and communication are as efficient as possible, can be the differentiator between market leadership and merely breaking even.
The opportunities to improve business processes with innovative mobile communications, information and payments, are endless, and a substantial proportion of Cobalt’s portfolio supports this sector.
In recent years, our focus on end-to-end parking services, has led to many innovative and award winning solutions. For these, and other bespoke road transport solutions, please see below.
Since 2002, when Cobalt first launched its web and IVR Collection Services for PCNs, the company has specialised in the parking industry and has focused on developing market-changing solutions that improve business and local authority operations.
Best known as provider of the UK’s leading pay by phone solution, RingGo, Cobalt has expanded its portfolio to cover virtually every aspect of the industry including: cashless and machine payments, dispensations, permits, events, enforcement, collections, self-ticketing solutions and park & ride.
Cobalt’s mobile payment services provide an easy way to collect money on the move. Our tolling solutions help motorists pay quickly and easily by phone, without needing to carry substantial cash. As for RingGo, VAT receipts are provided on-line.
For operators, our payments make life easy, by avoiding the expense and delays inherent in a fully manned service.
Government incentives encourage motorists to “go green”, but increasing use of electric vehicles provides knock-on effects for towns and cities to provide re-charging facilities.
While many EV charging points receive Government or EU grants, the on-going, potentially substantial costs of electricity supply, are not, and the question has to be asked ‘who pays for this?’.
With RingGo, the solution is simple. Motorists pay the electricity charge, as they would any other service. Whether payments are combined with parking, or are stand alone in specific bays, EV re-charging is easy with RingGo.
Cobalt’s cloud-based portfolio of solutions can be used across a wealth of different industries and by organisations big and small.
So whether you want to alert mobile employees to time-critical information, provide location based consumer applications, or simply offer digital payments to customers wherever they are – just let us know.
