ATOM is a platform that empowers entrepreneurs to launch and operate electric mobility services everywhere in the world. Whether it is scooter sharing, bike sharing, e-motorcycles, one-wheelers or even electric cars. 

Our platform takes away all the technology headache. It reduces barriers to launch sharing solutions even in the smallest cities. Our customers are entrepreneurs, who understand the local market needs better than anybody. We allow them to focus on marketing and operations and we help them with technology. With ATOM they:

-      Get to market faster, in 20 days vs 4 months in average;

-      With proven technology that scales (SLA 99,99%);

-      At low-cost (10X cheaper than building own software).

We constantly innovating on new features to help our customers deliver greater value to riders. Starting from demand prediction heatmaps to smart task distribution.

How will your solution benefit residents, workers, or visitors in the Michigan Central Station impact area? (1,000 characters)

Michigan Central Station may be the hub from where residents can rent e-bike and e-scooters for their short trips. With allowance from Michigan Central Station we can place charging and locking station for bikes and scooter to ensure they are always secured and 100% charged and don't bother pedestrians. Residents then will unlock vehicle using the Michigan Central Station app and can end ride in designated zones or charging stations all over the city (the map of stations should be developed together with the city). ATOM will help with all the software needed (including integrations) and will set up day-to-day operations if needed.

Describe your solution's stage of development

  • Fully Scaled - you have already scaled your solution and are exploring new use cases

Insights from previous testing (500 characters)

We ourselves use our platform to offer scooter and bike sharing in Latvia. We reached 20 000 riders, 70 000 USD in revenues just in first 4 months of operations, reaching operational profitability. Our customers in other countries such as Sweden, Greece, Germany, Ukraine and even Saudi Arabia operate independently using our IT solution. Every partner reaches in average of 2.5 to 4.5 rides per vehicle per day.

Tell us about your team or organization (500 characters)

We have an amazing team in Latvia. We build low-cost platform with great tech and scaling it globally. We were building software for last 7 years, confounded 2 companies together with our CTO and we know how to deliver results.

Rough Budget (500 characters)

Deploying of 7 charging stations across the city = 35 000 Purchasing e-scooters and e-bikes (total of 70) = 50 000 Software set-up fee = 10 000 Operating expense for 3 months = 40 000 Other costs = 15 000

Describe how you would pilot your idea (1000 characters)

Our launching team will handle all the organizational and logistic questions to ensure all the charging stations and vehicles will be up and running in time. Our marketing team will also help with branding and basic marketing to ensure the solution is popular among the residents. Out team back in Latvia will prepare the IT base for the software and launch branded solution.

Describe how you would measure the success of your pilot (1000 characters)

We aim to reach on average at least 2.5 rides per vehicle/day within 2 months from the launch date. Once this is reached we will be able be deploy more vehicles and vehicle types (multi-modal transportation).

Sustainability Plan (500 characters)

We are profitable in every country we launch and we will set up local team of operators and general manager to ensure service is growing and generating returns.
