Effective immediately, the software developer will be working together with Smartcar based in Silicon Valley, USA. Vehicles from producers whose interface is already linked by the American company can be integrated into the vehicle fleet within an extremely short time without any additional hardware. 20 car sharing providers throughout Europe already make use of the Zemtu software. Smartcar has developed a software interface which has proved to be compatible with vehicles from 19 manufacturers up until now. By accessing this interface, car sharing can take place without any additional hardware. "This massively reduces costs and complexity on the part of the providers, and the testing of our solution by interested companies is as easy as pie", states Zemtu cofounder Philipp Metzler.

New vehicles can be made fit for car sharing in less than 30 seconds. This same applies to company vehicle fleets. Reserved vehicles are opened and closed via the mobile Zemtu App. Access to telematics data such as mileage and the battery charge level enables a fully automated invoicing and display of information. According to Zemtu, the use of interfaces saves considerable costs, in light of the fact that automobile board computers no longer have to be installed, maintained and removed again at the end.
More than 25,000 users are currently mobile in Europe thanks to Zemtu. In the future, the solution should also be used overseas. Specific interest has already been shown by potential users in Australia. "With the support of Smartcar, we also hope to enter the American market", says an optimistic Zemtu cofounder Roland Kainbacher. The starting point for Zemtu was the founding of the car sharing service CARUSO more than ten years ago. In turn, this led to the three co-founders Dominik Bartenstein, Philipp Metzler and Roland Kainbacher establishing Zemtu in 2015. The company with six employees, headquartered in Dornbirn, Vorarlberg in Austria develops and operates a web-based software, serving as the basis for the mobility of more than 1,000 vehicles from 20 partners.
