- First joint project between the two companies after the partnership agreement concluded in 2017 at the Automobile Barcelona International Motor Show
SEAT and Saba, a leading operator in the development of solutions in the area of urban mobility and a specialist in parking management, are presenting Droppit, an app that will allow any user to place a shopping order at a virtual supermarket and have it delivered directly to their car while it is parked in a Saba car park. The six-month pilot test of this project, in collaboration with virtual supermarket Deliberry and Courier company Glovo, will be carried out in two car parks managed by Saba in the city of Barcelona, the ones located on Pau Casals and Lluís Companys.
In this initial stage, Droppit – available for both iOS and Android, will enable customers to order their shopping and get it delivered through Deliberry, as well as contact Glovo for delivery of any kind of errand to either of Saba’s car parks. The customer leaves their car keys with Saba staff, who are responsible for accompanying the delivery person, identifying the car and placing the order in it. In the future, the aim is to make the process easier using technology that enables the service providers to access cars using fingerprint recognition supported by the app itself.
Strategic agreement with Saba
The launch of this solution is a further step in SEAT’s commitment to enhancing the vehicle-centric mobility ecosystem with new services. Droppit is framed within the partnership agreement concluded by SEAT President Luca de Meo and Saba CEO Josep Martínez Vila last May at the Automobile Barcelona International Motor Show. The goal of this collaboration is for Saba to join SEAT’s digital ecosystem for the development of vehicle and parking related services.
