Europcar, a Scandinavian market player and part of the world's largest car rental network, offers a platform with a web admin and cross-platform mobile app for renting and booking vehicles worldwide. The platform gives access to more than 190,000 vehicles and 13,000 rental stations. In collaboration with them, we delivered one of the best cross-platform app development examples that can be found in our portfolio.
Andersen partnered with Europcar to bring their vision of a digital car rental platform to life. The result is a well-architected serverless app consisting of a front-end web application and mobile app that interact with a range of basic microservices. Via the app, users can rent or book cars, filter options based on their class, cost, size, fuel consumption, and location, and access the car via Bluetooth. The app was designed to be user-friendly and easy-to-use, and it generated positive reviews from clients. The solution also provided flexibility for adding new API functionalities as the need arises. The successful project caught the eye of Europcar and was acquired as a white-label solution. Kristian Karimo, CEO at OurCnC, praised our dedicated and talented team for establishing a smooth workflow throughout the car rental app project.
Andersen's specialists developed a well-architectured serverless app following the best industry practices. The architecture itself consists of a front-end web app (CRM) and a mobile app interacting with a range of basical microservices. As a result, top-notch car rental capabilities have been ensured. Amazon Services were used to deliver this IT project, including S3, SQS, SNS, SES, RDS, CloudWatch, Lambda, API Gateway, Step Functions, CloudFront, Route 53, Elastic IP addresses, and SSM.
The resulting mobile car rental solution is very easy-to-use. All end clients need to do is install it, register with a phone number or any social media account, and add their ID and driving license info. After that, users can find the closest location and pick up a suitable car. Once the car is chosen, the user receives a password that allows them to open the vehicle via Bluetooth. Payment is conducted post-factum. Below is a more detailed and tech-oriented description of the project deliverables:
As mentioned above, this example of cross-platform apps consists of a mobile app and its management panel. Both iOS and Android-based devices can use this convenient mobile app so that their owners can enjoy the best possible user experience.
To build a car rental system capable of all the functionality common for other systems of this kind with two conditions: the system should be keyless and so simple and intuitive.
We chose calm, natural Color Palette with shades of green and grey
Kept it classic and in style
After specifying the period of usage, location, and preferable type of a car, a user can see a map with all available cars nearby together with the price for their rental.
Each rental contains information about the date, cost, vehicle model, and some additional options such as a child seat or a navigation system.
After using the car, a client is suggested to report on damages and cleanliness status, as well as rate the customer’s services to help in making them better.
