PSIpenta supports production of the Cityskater as part of VW’s micro mobility program

Berlin, 28 May 2018 – PSI Automotive & Industry GmbH has been contracted by Volkswagen Sachsen GmbH with the delivery of the Enterprise Resource Planning System (ERP) PSIpenta. In the future, the order management module will be used in the production of the VW Cityskater. In the field of electromobility PSI software now supports the production process of an additional vehicle.

With its modular structure, the scalable ERP system PSIpenta optimally covers the needs of special vehicle construction in the standard version and supports established processes. Smaller group units are able to lean on their organization on the planned process schemes and therefore to achieve shorter project durations. In addition to the production site in St. Egidien in Saxony, the PSI software has been used by the VW Group for many years in the area of special vehicle construction and is integrated into the Group landscape.

The Cityskater is produced in St. Egidien and is the first concrete vehicle from the VW micro mobility program, which will be available later this year. Hence, in particular drivers and commuters can park their car outside the city and drive the last distance with the e-scooter directly to the city center. The range of the three-wheeled, foldable and thus trunk suitable Cityskater is about twenty kilometers at a speed of up to 20 km / h.

The software solutions based on the modern, Java-based technology platform of the PSI Group are already successfully used in the production of the electric vehicles Streetscooter and e.GO Life.

Based on its own software products, PSI Group develops and integrates complete solutions for optimizing the flow of energy and materials for utilities (energy networks, energy trading, public transport) and industry (mining, metals production, automotive, mechanical engineering, logistics). PSI was founded in 1969 and employs more than 1,700 people worldwide.
