Agile. Proactive. Innovative. – That is Carano

Our philosophy

Automating vehicle-related processes is where our roots and our future lie. While everyone is talking about digitization, we are driving it forward. As the market leader for customized software solutions, we are turning the digital evolution of corporate and vehicle mobility into reality. Our goal is to ensure demand-driven procurement and make fleet vehicle use – flexible, transparent and easy to manage.

Matthias von Tippelskirch
CEO

We’re digitizing the fleet industry

Since our founding, we have been driving the digital transformation in the fleet industry. Especially now, the market is in such flux – whether it’s the desire for sustainable, individualized mobility or the push for digital innovation due to the pandemic. Our goal is to support the transformation to (partial) EV fleets.

Hans-Joachim Guth
CEO

Industry pioneer for 30 years

With our field-tested solutions, we have been spearheading vehicle-based mobility for three decades. We see ourselves as the intermediator between fleet operators and service providers, whose aim is to make operational mobility cost-effective and smart. To this end, we are in constant dialog with our customers so that we may react flexibly to their ever-changing needs.

Johannes Borchert
Head of Product Management

Our goal is need-driven procurement

Carano has been growing steadily for years. At the same time, there is a rising need of the fleet market for solutions that are both easy to use and results oriented. Our 80-head strong team is working on products that facilitate management, procurement and corporate carsharing, with which all processes along the vehicle lifecycle in a comprehensive and value-added manner are mapped.

Exchange on equal terms

At Carano, we aim to provide comprehensive support to our 300 customers. These include fleet operators, service and leasing companies, and car dealers. An exchange on equal terms, by which we mean our customers’ concerns are resolved to their fullest satisfaction, is our top priority. Only then can we ensure that at every step of the way, they feel well advised and taken care of – from test installation, implementation to product deployment.
