STUTTGART, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 11, 2018--
Luxoft Holding, Inc. (NYSE: LXFT), a global IT service provider, and
Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the software company empowering
customer engagement at the world’s leading enterprises, have partnered
to create a cloud-based, end-to-end mobility services platform for
The mobility services platform for carmakers will shift the focus from
using software to alter the in-car user experience to creating a
holistic customer experience that covers every customer touchpoint, from
sharing services to UX platforms. The shift, driven by car-as-a-service
companies like Uber and Lyft, changes the way consumers view mobility –
valuing convenience over ownership.
“Carmakers today have an opportunity to take control of the entire
customer journey,” says
Mikael Söderberg, Senior Technical Director, of Luxoft Automotive.
“This platform acts as a blueprint that allows them to own the customer
experience by making more out of their customer data. By taking control
of their software, carmakers can shape how people interact with their
brand from the point of purchase.”
“This platform will provide easy, relevant, consistent, timely, and
contextual customer mobility services, seamlessly across all channels –
both inside and outside the car. This unique UX platform is the basic
foundation for seamless end-to-end customer engagement journeys in
mobility,” explains Thomas Richter, Industry
Principal at Pegasystems.
To enhance the user experience, Luxoft and Pega are building a
futureproof mobility services platform capable of incorporating features
such as rider management, service management, predictive diagnostics,
mobile communication, and mobility services. The platform can be
integrated into other cloud platforms, such as Alexa, AWS or Google
Home, and has the ability to personalize the connected car by
associating attributes – such as navigation options, preferred driver
settings, and points of interest – to a user’s individual profile.
The solution is being built on Pega Platform™, the industry-leading
application development platform, and will be integrated with Luxoft’s
PELUX / Qt automotive digital cockpit software suite, a Linux-based open
source platform. Luxoft will operate as a strategic deployment partner
in the automotive sector and will lead the development of the software.
While still in development, this solution will enable OEMs to quickly
integrate new features into vehicles without having to start from
scratch, and is already being worked on in collaboration with major car
manufacturers. Since this solution is an open platform, it can also
incorporate future technology partners to add new functions.
As a Pega Partner, Luxoft has deep Pega expertise and dedicated practice
focused on delivering customer engagement and operational excellence
solutions for its customers in Europe, APAC, and the US leveraging its
onshore and near shore centers. Luxoft will leverage these delivery
capabilities to rapidly deploy solutions for automotive companies in
