Commutifi has been improving commutes with Fortune 100 companies, large commercial real estate firms, and municipalities in North America since 2016. Now, as sustainable commuting initiatives are gaining momentum globally, the team has begun expanding its European presence.

Commutifi’s patented Commuter Score and dynamic commute management platform help companies and mobility managers focus on the five critical steps to creating a successful Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) — promoted heavily by the European Union — or North American equivalent Transportation Demand Management (TDM) plan: Score. Analyze. Create. Distribute. Manage.

On Wednesday, a panel of international judges from FIA Clubs (ACI, ÖAMTC, ACCHI, AASA) and FIA Smart Cities Partners (ABB, Julius Bär, and Michelin) named Commutifi the North American FIA Smart Cities Global Start-Up Contest winner.

“With SUMPs growing in popularity across the EU, we have been working hard to bring our all-in-one sustainable commuting platform to the European market. We were excited to be accepted into the FIA Smart Cities Global Start-Up Contest, and are thrilled to have been named the winners,” said Rich Schmelzer, CEO of Commutifi. “This further proves the need for Commutifi in Europe and beyond and that Commuter Scoring solves this global problem.”

This award will grow Commutifi’s collection of global accolades, joining a previous first-place award from the 2018 SXSW European Urban Startup Slam.

Commutifi’s line of point solutions, including smart city-connected commuter surveys and distributed office configuration, complements their full end-to-end platform to help companies, commercial real estate, and municipalities manage all their SUMP or TDM plans in one location.

Whether you’re a 50-person start-up using spreadsheets to manage parking and transit passes, an international Fortune 500 institution managing hundreds of thousands of commuters in offices around the world, or a city investigating new equitable and sustainable service lines, Commutifi can streamline your workflow, integrate your commuting programs, and save you and your commuters time, cost, and carbon.
