Fleetondemand’s Mobilleo platform will power Kinto’s MaaS offering that consolidates all forms of travel into a single solution where customers can search thousands of different travel providers
Kinto, the mobility division of Toyota, has joined forces with Fleetondemand to introduce a mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) solution for UK businesses.
Fleetondemand’s Mobilleo platform will power Kinto’s MaaS offering that consolidates all forms of travel into a single solution where customers can search thousands of different travel providers for flights, trains, car hire, car clubs, taxis, hotels, airport lounges and more.
According to Kinto, its MaaS platform can be configured to suit the different policies and mobility requirements of any organisation and deployed via desktop and smartphone. This includes saving costs by consolidating travel booking and expenses, alternatives to company cars, cash allowance and grey fleet usage, enhancing employee benefit programmes, improving CSR policies, or driving total cost of mobility intelligence across the business.
“We understand that the way people and businesses move is changing and our new solution will enable us to support our customers as they begin on their mobility journey,” said Matthew Rumble, CEO at Kinto UK.
“With a number of schemes already in the pipeline, I am excited to see how we can help shape the future of fleet and travel for many companies across the UK.”
The solution’s mobility budgets feature aims to provide users with a clear overview of their individual monthly budget, showing them and their employer how much has been spent to date and labelling trips as either private or business for tax purposes.

The bespoke management reporting suite offers employers full business intelligence on a customer-by-customer basis, which can be analysed at an organisational level to drive further efficiencies, track emissions and measure their total cost of mobility.
“The acceleration of business MaaS is reaching an inflection point as we head into 2021. Businesses are now starting to consider the wider mobility mix going forward and what this means sitting alongside the use of company cars,” added Matt Terry, head of business MaaS, Fleetondemand.
“Looking to the future we are extremely excited to be working with Kinto UK. Our partnership ensures [its] customers will be the first organisations in Europe to have access to all-encompassing total cost of mobility schemes.”
Fleetondemand claims Mobilleo is helping public authorities, including Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM), Surrey Council and Transport Scotland, to power urban and rural MaaS projects that help to reduce congestion, improve air quality and promote healthier lifestyles by encouraging people to leave their cars at home and use shared and active travel options instead.
