Business Development Manager Smart Cities
Cegeka is a large ICT company that is mostly known for offering cloud infrastructure and software solutions. Through notable customers, Cegeka has been active in the smart parking industry for years.
Since 2019 we are strongly active in the smart mobility domain for private companies (such as real-estate developers and business parks), semi-public institutions such as hospitals and smart cities.
For these segments we develop smart mobility solutions through software and integrations platforms.
Last year we announced our Capacity platform for smart parkings and future mobility hubs for private companies and public institutions. The platform seeks to extend the value we bring to three additional domains besides parking: mobility, electrification and connectivity. We do this by offering a platform of services and applications that tackle many mobility problems that city administrations, parking vendors, real-estate developers, mobility hub owners and other decision makers of innovative mobility companies face nowadays and towards the future.
We do all this through delivering operational excellence, great customer experiences and by using state of the art technologies such as artificial intelligence, edge computing, cloud-based development, micro services and many more.
