New Ride-Sharing App From SAP Helps Organizations Reduce Costs, Save Resources And Better Engage Employees

Stocks in this article: SAP





WALLDORF, Germany, April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --   The long, solo commutes endured by many employees are costing them and their organizations in lost productivity, wasted resources and additional expenses. SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today introduced TwoGo by SAP®, which allows companies to effectively engage their employees in ride-sharing to work. This helps facilitate better networked and more productive employees. Similarly, companies can reduce costs for corporate fleets, parking infrastructure and travel expenses. Delivered over the cloud, TwoGo may be instantly rolled out across organizations, allowing employees an opportunity to be matched into carpools automatically and according to their individual preferences. Moreover, TwoGo features unique capabilities to help drive employee participation in a company's ride-sharing program.

"TwoGo by SAP is another great example of how our innovations help the world run better. We've combined our mobile and cloud technologies into a carpooling solution to help provide immediate economic, environmental and social benefits to companies and their employees," said Peter Graf, chief sustainability officer, SAP AG. "As such, we expect TwoGo to not only help people and businesses save money and greenhouse gas emissions, but to also connect people more closely with each other and with the company they work for. It has been designed around employees with one single objective in mind: create the most effective, intuitive and beautiful experience possible."

Organizations committed to sustainable business practices are concerned with creating value while mitigating their environmental impact. TwoGo helps companies meet that goal simply and effectively. For example, the solution offers cost-efficiency opportunities to companies with corporate fleets, such as how to minimize maintenance costs and preserve vehicle resale value. It also supports companies looking for a way to make vanpooling more affordable and effective by seeking riders to find and regularly fill the van. Finally, TwoGo helps organizations demonstrate their commitment to sustainability by reducing carbon emissions and engaging employees in that mission.
