Alphabet’s AlphaCity mobility solution wins second innovation award

AlphaCity, the corporate car sharing mobility solution from Alphabet, has won a second industry award in three months.

It beat off competition from three rival entries to win the Innovation in Fleet Services and Systems category at the Energy Savings Trusts’ annual Fleet Hero Awards.

AlphaCity helps businesses to cut costs and carbon emissions by offering their staff a cool, high tech alternative to using their own cars or taxis or hire cars on business. Drivers can even rent the specially-equipped AlphaCity BMWs and Minis for private trips outside working hours.

Mark Gibson, Alphabet’s Head of marketing & business development, accepted the award from Norman Baker MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport, at a ceremony at the Institute of Directors.

“We aim to help our customers run smarter, more cost-effective and lower-impact fleet operations,” said Mark. “That means changing people’s attitudes to business and personal mobility. AlphaCity makes greener corporate travel novel and fun.”

Philip Sellwood, chief executive of the Energy Saving Trust, said: “I would like to congratulate Alphabet. They have set a great example to others and have shown how innovation, leadership and effective management in this area of the business can not only help us meet the UK’s sustainability targets but also make significant cost savings in the process.”
