Vogl & Co is the largest privately managed automobile company in Styria with over 10,000 new and used cars. The company employs 390 persons and has around 30 affiliated dealers. This success can only be sustained with the ongoing determination to innovate. And so Vogl & Co is again among the innovators in the field of electronic locking systems.
“Rent my car”
Vogl & Co offers its customers more than the comprehensive service of a car dealership. Vogl & Co are active from car purchase to servicing, from repairing cars to trading in used cars. Since March 2019, the possibility of renting an individual car complements the services provided by Vogl & Co.
A personalised rental vehicle thanks to AirKey
Together with EVVA, Vogl & Co devised a customer-friendly and flexible method of renting a vehicle on demand. At "Rent your car" registered customers can select a car online. The most diverse variants are available - from a van for small transports, an SUV for a family outing or a sleek convertible for a relaxed weekend for two. E-vehicles are also available for those who want to test an environmentally conscious driving experience. Each model can be booked for a period to be determined by the individual. Thanks to AirKey, the parking garage access data is sent directly to the customer’s mobile phone; another mobile phone code allows the car to be unlocked.
Unique solution in Austria
To meet the needs of Vogl & Co, an individual solution was created by EVVA and the implementing company ALARM 1, which meets requirements and is unique in this form in Austria.
Tried and tested partnership
Vogl & Co has been an EVVA customer and partner for 30 years and has always kept pace with modern times. Managing Director Günter Mayr is not afraid of contact with electronic access control systems from EVVA: "We have already deployed AirKey in several areas. All our access control systems are centrally lockable. It is a tried and tested system and we can well imagine developing an interface to other car sharing providers".
