Recognizing the importance of seamless global connectivity for its e-scooters, e-bikes and bikes, Veo selected Hologram’s platform for its fleet management support and its software system of record.
“We’re thrilled to be Veo’s connectivity provider, particularly at an exciting time for micromobility where we’re seeing increasing growth and demand for these innovative e-scooters and e-bikes,” said Ben Forgan, co-founder and CEO of Hologram. “The Covid pandemic was part of the reason the micromobility trend exploded both in the United States and globally and we can expect to see more innovation and evolution in the future of transportation.”
