2017, a year full of success and changes for Yuso
2017 was a really exciting year for Yuso, and we reached a real turning point, both from a business and product point of view. It was the second year we marketed our dispatch management solution, and we proved its reliability, even for large fleets with hundreds of vehicles. In one year we went from 30 to 50 clients, multiplying by two our revenue, and by four the volume of rides dispatched on our platform. In February 2017, we successfully deployed our solution for largest taxi company in Luxembourg WEBTAXI, whom was compared to Uber by the Luxembourgish Prime Minister, Xavier Bettel.

We also get closer and closer to our global vision and final objective, which is to offer an all-in-one platform, dedicated to any kind of on-demand mobility service. We started in 2017 by developing some features dedicated to last-mile logistics, and by testing them with some of our clients.
Last but not least, we are backed since August 2017 by the world leading car-makers, Renault-Nissan group, through its subsidiary RCI Bank and Services. This acquisition has allowed us to have a better financial visibility, and to reinforce our team by hiring 7 talented people, who bring new skills and expertise to the different teams (backend development, UX design, front end development, R&D, marketing).
Regarding product enhancement and features, we put in 2017 a high focus on improving our existing solution dedicated to e-hailing (taxis and private hire fleets), but also on developing a new version of our dispatch management solution, adapted to delivery services and last-mile logistics.
