The customer

arwe Holding GmbH, headquartered at Munich Airport and with numerous other locations, e.g. in London, Paris, Madrid and Vienna, is a mobility service provider employing a total of 5,000 people. Its main customers are car rental companies, automobile manufacturers and dealers as well as car sharing providers. For these, cars are parked, received, checked, refueled and cleaned. In Germany alone, arwe carries out up to 10,000 vehicle returns daily for industry leaders such as Avis, Enterprise, Europcar, Hertz and Sixt.

The challenge

The biggest challenge is speed. At Munich Airport alone, up to 4000 vehicles are taken back each day. So high performance is also required on the IT side. And that's just one of a total of 15 locations in Germany and France. In addition, not all locations have WLAN. The system must therefore not only be reliable and fast, but also available offline. The situation becomes more complex due to the different processes of the car rentals. Each provider, for example, has its own damage classifications. These differences must be mapped properly in the software.

The solution

Due to external circumstances there was a fixed deadline: On a fixed deadline the software had to go live. During development, we took care to create an executable product together with the customer as quickly as possible, in which initially only the necessary features were implemented. The Spring Framework and the use of a relational database were the ideal solution for the requirements. At the same time, the software was kept easily expandable so that any missing features could be added as quickly and easily as possible after the first GoLive. For the future, the integration of further features is desired from the customer's side. CARWE has been used successfully ever since. Vehicles can now be processed significantly faster by the employees.
we solved it.
