A pioneering end-to-end solution that addresses the growing safety concerns in the rideshare industry and beyond.

It's focus on deterrence and documenting the entire ride makes rideshare a much safer experience. 

The partnership brings together DisplayRide's RMPTM innovation with Vodafone Idea Business Services' extensive capability with large-scale Internet of Things (IoT) deployments to deliver Rideshare Monitoring as a Service  (RMaaSTM), a seamless end-to-end service that can be deployed and scaled rapidly, and at a low Total Cost of Ownership.

Abhijit Kishore, Director- Enterprise Business, Vodafone Idea Limited said, "We are pleased to partner with DisplayRide to enable the launch of RMaaSTM - an innovative, value-added service to enterprises. The partnership signifies our continued commitment towards offering leading-edge smart mobility solutions, powered by our deep IoT expertise and comprehensive portfolio, to the entire automotive value chain. This proposition ensures safety of both drivers and commuters and is even more relevant in the current circumstances where health & safety are paramount. This innovative offering will help ride-hailing companies to improve their safety and hygiene standards."
