Via its open digital platform APCOA FLOW, the company connects on-street and off-street car parks with clients, partners, customers and their vehicles. Based on this technology, APCOA is transforming its car parks into mobility hubs, offering innovative services that enable a more convenient mobility experience.
As part of realising APCOA’s strategy, APCOA engaged Glue Reply in four key due diligence activities. These comprise of the evaluation of two organisations and their well-established digital technology capabilities, as well as, two start-ups with potentially highly disruptive technologies that might significantly affect the industry.
To fulfil this, Glue Reply used it’s well proven Audit & Assessment methodology, tailored to the needs of APCOA, which has been developed over the last 15 years and used to support over 30 organisations.
“Making rapid, but informed decisions at the start of a digital programme is key to creating momentum and confidence in the overall programme.
Having used Glue Reply in a previous role I felt confident that they were an organisation I could partner with to help support the strategic decisions we were making with our best interests at heart.
Glue Reply drew out the necessary insights we needed and worked with us in a flexible and collaborative manner throughout.”
- Chris Hewertson, CIO, APCOA
Ultimately the assessments Glue Reply provided gave significant insight and colour to the opportunities being presented to APCOA. This enabled APCOA to understand whether there was a macro-level fit to their objectives, the investments they would need to make in the technology and capability, how the technology or organisation might be aligned and brought into APCOA and the potential value of the opportunity to APCOA.
