Cooltra, leader in sustainable mobility on two wheels

Cooltra is a leading Spanish company in sustainable mobility on two wheels. It emerged more than 15 years ago to facilitate urban mobility, offering scooter rentals for days. Over the years the company has been expanding its range of services to the rental of two-wheeled vehicles by the minute (motosharing and bikesharing), and renting by months, both to individuals and to companies and public administrations.

Cooltra is in 8 countries (Austria, Spain, France, Italy, Portugal, the Czech Republic, Poland and Germany), has a workforce of 400 people and a fleet of 18,000 vehicles, of which 75% are electric motorcycles that work emitting a zero footprint.

Mobility companies, like Cooltra, need to know who is going to use their vehicles to avoid risks and attribute responsibilities.

If some users could freely access the vehicles, they wouldn’t worry about taking care of them and leaving them as they were. It is important to know the client, through identity verification, and make sure they know that are responsible for their actions to avoid the misuse of scooters and bikes.

Challenge: Onboarding of new clients

Users of scooters and electric bikes by the minute are people in a hurry. They need immediate and easy-to-use solutions, they don’t want to waste time on activation processes.

For this reason, the great challenge and the great priority of Cooltra is to make the electric scooter and bicycle rental experience as comfortable and fast as possible.

When they started, they had to stick to times and manually sign up their new users (and therefore relatively long activation times). With the advancement of technology, the registration process was done through an application. Little by little they were reducing the activation time of new clients, always trying to adapt to the needs of their clients.

In that continuous search for improvement, they came to Alice.

Solution: Alice speeds up identity verification

Alice’s identity verification is specifically optimized for remote new customer registration processes. For this reason, it adapts to what Cooltra, and mobility companies, need: a robust and automatic technology that protects the company from damage, taking maximum care of the user experience.

Although we considered other onboarding companies in the market, we decided on Alice for the quality of its technical documentation and its competitive price.

Thanks to Alice’s identity verification, Cooltra users can access their two-wheelers in a matter of seconds, after verifying and validating their identity. They just need to take a selfie and capture a photo of their driving document to complete the verification process.

For its part, the Cooltra team has access to the information of its users in real time through a control panel that is very easy to review.

After a simple integration, Cooltra is ready to continue improving its service with Alice, while consolidating its leadership in the field of electric mobility on wheels.

Cooltra enlists the help of Alice to ensure that:

✓Their users are real

✓Their users are of legal age

✓Their users have a valid driver’s license

We highly value the proactivity of Alice’s team to develop integrations in record time with excellent results.

The results

The integration with Alice has impacted Cooltra’s results favorably from the first week.

Internally, we see a huge reduction in the activation time of our clients, so most of new registrations can use our service just a few seconds after finishing the registration.

Roberto Lera, CTO of Cooltra.

During the months in which we have worked together, Cooltra and Alice, we have achieved the following achievements:

✓ We have reduced the registration time from about 3 hours to 30 seconds on average

✓ We have increased customer conversion by 6%

✓ We have saved >100 hours of work per month

And what fills us with the most satisfaction, that our client is happy:

The very good predisposition of the technical teams to be in permanent contact in real time stands out.
