Trip Authentication Success: Wolseley, Warwick Technology Park

Wolseley UK is the country’s largest supplier of building materials, with trade customers, such as plumbers and builders, accounting for the largest proportion of its sales. They launched their Liftshare Scheme in November 2018 at their headquarters in Warwick.




By producing a Scoping Smart Mobility report Liftshare identified that 65% of Wolseley staff had viable Liftshare options and therefore the organisation rolled-out a Liftshare Scheme.

After the first on-site Liftshare event, 61% of Wolseley’s staff signed up to their Liftshare scheme, with 40% of their total staff turning into Liftsharers!


Throughout the process of introducing Liftshare into our business, I have found them to be very professional, flexible and responsive to our specific needs. The Products available have proved to be very valuable to our colleagues and our business.

Trip Authentication

Wolseley UK have been using Liftshare’s Trip Authentication tool since December 2018, and, so far, have had 33% of their staff authenticating their trips. Trip Authentication is the technology whereby clients can track how often liftshares are actually taking place, and see in real time how many people are validating their liftshare on a daily basis.

The Liftshare Trip Authentication tool is a very innovative product. It gives the managers of the service the information they require to ensure daily carsharing is happening. It is simple for the users and ensures they feel safe in the fact the car sharing benefits aren’t being abused by other employees.

All in all, the tool is invaluable to the better understanding stake holders require make informed decisions on the work place parking.
