SHARE NOW takes first place in the car-sharing category
Growing demand for car-sharing in Vienna
As part of the independent study of the ÖGVS-Gesellschaft für Verbraucherstudien mbH (Society for Consumer Studies) one of the largest Austria-wide rankings in the field of app satisfaction "ÖGVS-APP-Award 2022/23", the best providers were determined from more than 55,000 judgments of users on a total of 452 apps from 55 industries. SHARE NOW, the European market leader in flexible car-sharing, won in two categories. In addition to the "TOP app across all industries" award, the company also secured first place in the car-sharing category with its service app.
"The award is a great recognition for the constant further development of our specially developed app. The key is simplicity for customers. On the technical side, more than 250 microservices ensure a seamless user experience, while on the customer side, a shared car can be rented in just a few seconds. This is how we make sustainable mobility in Vienna accessible in just a few clicks," says Olivier Reppert, CEO of SHARE NOW.
