Bus manufacturer Ebusco optimizes operations with ViriCiti

Context

Ebusco is a Dutch electric bus manufacturer based in Helmond. They are completely focused on the production of full-electric buses and have their buses driving all over Europe.

“We already focused on electric buses since 2010 and people thought we were a little bit crazy. Now, we are really proud to see that what we thought in the beginning is becoming a reality. From its start, we closely worked together with ViriCiti and developed software to optimize our operation to give our customers better after-sales support.”

Peter Bijvelds – CEO Ebusco

Challenges
