Movatic and CycleSafe announce a strategic partnership to deliver electronic access to bike lockers, providing users with reservation and payment tools through their smartphones.
ANN ARBOR — October 26th 2016 — Movatic, a mobility-management platform company and CycleSafe, the leader in bike locker security for over thirty years, announce a new strategic partnership. Their partnership will combine CycleSafe’s industry expertise with Movatic’s intuitive software to allow users to find, reserve, rent, and pay for bike locker usage via their Movatic app.
Users simply need to download the app, enter their credit card information and click on the bike locker they wish to rent. Booking and billing is handled through the app, and billing information is saved for future use.
CycleSafe biker lockers are a proven, safe and reliable option for bike storage. By combining safe storage with convenient app-powered reservation and rentals, property managers will make it easier and more convenient for riders to choose bike transportation.
“For locker owners, the combination of CycleSafe lockers and the Movatic app means much easier management of locker usage. No more managing keys, cash payments, lost keys or security issues relating to who actually uses the locker. With this new system, a locker owner has better visibility as to who is using a locker and the frequency of its use,” said Richard Hartger, founder and president ofCycleSafe.
Cyclists also no longer have to worry about keys, cash, or reservations in advance.
Bringing electronic access to bike lockers demonstrates CycleSafe’s continued innovation within the bike locker industry.
“We like to invest in solutions that create market-changing opportunities. We’re certainly on that cutting edge with Movatic,” said Hartger.
For Movatic, bringing electronic access to bike lockers is their first step in working towards building their shared-use mobility platform.
“We are excited to add bike lockers to the Movatic platform in partnership with CycleSafe. CycleSafe is the leader in bike lockers and is an ideal partner to help us introduce this technology. Bike lockers are a critical part of a complete multi-modal system as they provide a secure place for avid cyclists to store their bikes. The high level of security, along with the added ease of use that Movatic provides, will increase bike usage, which is a critical metric in creating a multi-modal system.” said Ansgar Strother, CEO of Movatic.
