Brussels, 19 October 2021 - Mbrella, the HR platform for flexible mobility solutions, is free to use for all companies up to 250 employees from today. The start-up wants to remove any barriers for SMEs to offer their employees flexible mobility plans. Four payroll administrators or ‘social secretaries’ join the partnership from the get-go and show their commitment to HR innovation. “A flexible mobility policy is not just for the major corporations.”

Mbrella’s free platform gives smaller enterprises the opportunity to offer mobility plans to their employees that are just as comprehensive as those of large corporations. This was often impossible until now, because similar platforms tend to charge a monthly fee per employee, making it unfeasible for many SMEs. Mbrella, on the other hand, is now free up to 250 employees per company.

“SMEs are often unable to offer their employees truly comprehensive mobility solutions like bigger companies can – if they can offer any at all”, explains Mbrella CEO Amaury Gerard. “They often don’t have the financial power to lease company cars at economical prices, and alternative mobility plans are usually just as expensive and more complex in administration. This is a situation Mbrella wants to rectify.”

Flexible mobility, a necessity

New mobility solutions are becoming more and more essential in a changing work environment. With increased levels of home working, an ever-growing traffic issue and more concern for the climate, old solutions like the company car or train season tickets no longer correspond to the daily reality of most employees.

The Belgian government introduced the mobility budget in response to this new reality, but this legal framework is only available for employees who already qualified for a company car. This means that many SMEs and their employees are still missing out on viable mobility solutions.

The Mbrella platform enables companies to offer both the legal mobility budget framework and other, self-composed flexible mobility packages to all their employees as needed, regardless of company size, available budget or included mobility options. And with Mbrella, flexible mobility brings along no more administrative hassle than the trusty company car.

Integration with social secretaries for ultimate ease of use

Alongside the launch of their free model for SMEs, Mbrella is also pleased to announce partnerships with Partena, Securex, Acerta and Attentia. Thanks to the integration with Mbrella, these social secretaries can offer their clients a simple but comprehensive solution for compiling and executing a flexible mobility policy. The collaboration also means that employees can be remunerated for their mobility use directly through the payroll, making it optimally efficient for both HR divisions and the employees who will be using the new platform.

The social secretary partners are very pleased with the integration with Mbrella.

“Here at Securex, we play an advisory role in the setup of a mobility policy for our clients, now we are adding a platform to manage these policies”, explains Kristof Benoit, General Manager Employers & International at Securex. “This partnership allows us to give all our SME clients easy access to the mobility ecosystem.”

“A flexible mobility policy is not just for the major corporations”, concludes Mbrella CEO Gerard. “We want to lower the threshold, so that SMEs can also offer their employees attractive mobility benefits – and in doing so, contribute to a more liveable environment for everyone.”
