BlaBlaCar revolutionizes modern transportation with BigPicture Enterprise

BlaBlaCar is the world’s leading long-distance ridesharing platform – a global, trusted community of drivers and passengers in 22 countries. The website and mobile apps connect people looking to travel long distances with drivers going the same way, so they can travel together and share the cost. Each passenger makes a fair contribution for their seat, and drivers cover their fuel and toll costs but do not make a profit. The platform is engineered to create a secure, trust-based community with declared identities and full member profiles. All of this supported by BigPicture Enterprise!

BlaBlaCar has a very cool system of internal departments, named Tribes. Many of them use Agile methodologies and need a way to visualize and distribute data to different parts of the company. They wanted to benefit from the work they were already used to, putting every projects, tasks and epics in JIRA and just syncing them to the tool. And the best Agile-compatible Gantt with detailed roadmapping and full sync was BigPicture Enterprise.

Right now, 3 tribes use the tool. The main use breakdown is product manager, technical manager and developers. The biggest upside is by far the fact that everything is fully synchronized with JIRA, so no need to do things twice manually – it’s a standard fire and forget, so to say.

We wanted to benefit from the work we are already used to, putting every projects, tasks and epics in jira.

The best solution for us was BigPicture Entreprise.”
