05 Mar A coffee break with Leo Gannio, CEO of MAGIIS
- What is MAGIIS?
MAGIIS is the first digital technology platform as a service for people transportation companies in Latin America.
- How does it work?
The platform is aimed at entrepreneurs and people transportation companies wishing to fully automate their business, with zero upfront investment, to concentrate all their resources on providing an exceptional service and winning new customers.
It’s easy to use. You simply register the company on the platform, get your unique code and you’re ready to start operating. Once all the vehicles, drivers and customers have been loaded on the system it begins automatically dispatching on- demand or scheduled trips via a mobile application or other transfer request channel (phone, SMS, Chat, etc.).
The platform facilitates client administration of both individual and corporate accounts, allowing payments in cash, or by electronic means employing the most popular credit and debit cards.
More importantly, the MAGIIS platform requires no initial investment since it works as a pay-per-use platform. We accompany you as your business grows.
- Why did you decide to create MAGIIS?
The market for people mobility is immersed in a profound worldwide transformation and we are just starting to perceive its beginning.
Transportation companies and entrepreneurs need a solid world-class platform to compete and win new markets, in order to focus on providing a differential service.
At MAGIIS we want to positively impact the communities where we operate, providing a Better Travel Experience, increasing Transportation Company Profitability, improving driver and passenger Safety and promoting Legal and Sustainable Employment.
- What differentiates MAGIIS from other people transportation applications?
MAGIIS is a platform for people transportation companies. It does not compete with them but allows them to automate their operation significantly increasing the ability to manage their assets (drivers, vehicles and customers) maintaining confidentiality and exponentially improving their competitive capacity in the market and community where they operate.
Companies that use the MAGIIS platform have access to their own mobile application for transfer requests, with functionalities that allow them to compete with the largest international applications.
- What do we mean by revolutionizing urban transportation through MAGIIS?
We are a digital platform for people transportation companies. The platform is oriented to COMPANIES that provide transfer or mobility services. Those that own vehicles, buses, bicycles, scooters, cars for rental, etc.
We will revolutionize urban transportation since companies now have a digital platform that allows them to compete with large global monopoly applications and non-professional drivers, automating their operation, working collaboratively within the MAGIIS community, increasing profitability in double digit percentages and ultimately, significantly increasing the number of clients.
- What does the concept “Mobility as a Service” (MaaS) mean?
Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is a concept that has governed the design, development and implementation of our people transportation platform. Soon, people will have the freedom to choose freely and without physical restrictions, by which form of transportation to move from point A to point B.
But to achieve this goal, we must not only make all the transportation options available on a single platform, but the platform must also allow entrepreneurs and company owners to unleash their creative and business potential by providing operational security of their assets. Nowadays, nobody considers buying an electric generator to provide their home or business with electric power; they simply contract the service from a power company. It is easy, cheap and the energy comes from multiple forms of generation (hydraulic, nuclear, thermo electric, solar, wind, etc.)
Soon mobility will be the same, you will simply hire on a platform the company or type of vehicle you desire to move from point A to point B. We call this type of service MaaS (or Mobility as a Service).
- What is a Magiister? What characterizes one?
The MAGIIS platform has the long-term vision of positively influencing the communities where we operate. The communities are composed of the people on the move, the professional drivers who provide the service, the companies that develop their activity, generating value for their community and transferring their employees, the shareholders of MAGIIS, its suppliers and partners.
Being a MAGIISTER is about belonging to the MAGIIS community in a collaborative working process and business relationship, where EVERYONE wins by interacting with our platform.
We want a better and fairer world where being a MAGIISTER is about belonging to a working community that exercises a collaborative and inclusive concept that allows for everyday improvement by example and execution at the highest level of excellence.
- What prospects do you have for the next five years?
The MAGIIS mission is to become the leading Digital Platform for people transportation in the Americas in the next 5 years. Beginning in Latin America, our strategic aim is to eventually cover all the countries and communities of the American continent.
