Our client is a leader in the Oil & Gas sector. Volatile markets and an uncertain future have led them to a visionary approach about how to adapt their business to a world that is increasingly less predictable.


The only way to reduce traffic-congested streets, limited parking and cities increasingly choked with pollution is by having fewer cars on the road. As an Oil & Gas Company, or an Automotive Manufacturer, this potentially hurts your business.


Our client partnered with multiple companies in the transportation industry to form a car-sharing program. Now available in Italy's four major cities, this car sharing program is helping reduce congestion on the road, in the parking lot and reduce pollution. With more than 100,000 users of the Car Sharing app - our client successfully transformed their problem into an opportunity.

We helped them achieve it with the development, design and implemention of a mobile application for nearly 100,000 end users.

The smart device application allows mobile users to search a map and reserve a vehicle among a fleet of hundreds of cars in the service. The map also provides the ability to find participating gas stations and parking spots among the many qualifying lots around the city. Users can even gain access to the vehicle via the mobile app. Available for iPhone or Android the app has been downloaded by between 60,000 and 100,000 users and is rated 4 out of 5 stars in the Google Play app store.

“We are incredibly proud of the success we have seen with the app so far”, said Edoardo Narduzzi, president of Techedge Group. “Our client and its commercial partners had a clear vision of what car sharing should be. We were able to realize the vision in an app, overcoming the challenges and complexity of data from cars, gas stations, and parking garages and their systems. It is a testament to the skill of our developers and how a collaborative and flexible approach with a visionary client can achieve remarkable things”, added Narduzzi.

Users of the service help promote a more sustainable and livable city by reducing private car usage and alleviating traffic, parking congestion and pollution.

The App is available for iPhone and Android.
