Pon

Pon is one of the largest companies in the Netherlands, with more than 16,000 employees and 80 companies in 65 countries. We are known for brands like Volkswagen, Porsche, Gazelle, Caterpillar and Swapfiets.

We are the Pon Datalab, a team of 18 data scientists and engineers on a mission to make Pon the smartest trading and service company in the world. How? By bridging the gap between business and data.

On the one hand, we do this by solving challenges faced by Pon companies. We either deploy one of our existing solutions or co-create with the business to create a custom solution. On the other hand, we spend one day per week on innovation. On this day we experiment with new ideas and technologies, aiming to surprise the business with new solutions that might turn into stand-alone business models like Lensor.

Lensor is a new Pon start-up that focusses on automatic damage detection on vehicles using computer vision. Lensor is active in both the rental and fleet business, with customers like Sixt and Albert Heijn.
