Faxi applies for its first patent - proof that car sharing is taking place

Car sharing is a global solution to a global problem, and while it is continually on the rise, the complications lie in the provability of it taking place. For corporates offering car sharing incentive schemes, priority parking spaces and sustainability rewards, there is the question of monitoring, reviewing, and proving that car sharing activities are happening in the workplace. This is changing.

Now, any corporate or local authority can provide reserved car parking spaces for users with Faxi technology to prove that car sharing is taking place on a daily basis. Huge cost savings are possible for both organisations and employees with this cost-effective solution.

Faxi has developed the first patented technology which allows the cost-effective monitoring and proof that car sharing is taking place. Using sophisticated geo-fencing technology, the Faxi app measures location information and can pass it on to organisations. This enables organisations to allocate priority car parking spaces to users, add sustainability ‘points’ for a rewards or incentives programme or the ability for users to accurately log travel expenses.

Faxi is very careful to protect the privacy of the user, allowing the functionality to monitor using only the minimum personal data. The only data the organisation receives is confirmation of car sharing having taken place and the vehicle registration number of the car sharer.

This unique solution to a nationwide issue is revolutionising corporate social responsibility strategies for organisations, and as Faxi develops its technology over the coming months, will have the potential to reduce localised workplace congestion, ease parking pressures and provide a tangible incentives and rewards programme for employees. 

Faxi is currently launching pilot projects with businesses and local authorities early in the New Year – if you are interested in taking part in a pilot please contact us for more information.
