An office on wheels, that’s literally how the users of ‘Office on Wheels’ can see this office bus. Colruyt Group designed a work bus with Proximus as their technological partner. Wireless Internet, a coffee machine, a cloakroom, a printer and a toilet – everything is provided for these one hundred commuters to work digitally and flexibly.
The initiative comes from the Professional Association of Bus and Coach Operators and the Flemish Institute for Mobility. They want to look at whether the office bus is a sustainable alternative for commuting. Proximus is proud to be a partner and is supporting this project by converting a powerful, high-capacity 4G connection into separate, secure Wi-Fi networks for each user group.
Once the Colruyt staff reach their fixed workplace, during the day the bus is used as a classroom. Doctors and pharmacists who find it difficult to travel are offered software training courses on site. So the office bus is converted into a training bus and used to optimal effect.
