We all have a funny relationship with the items we own and end up stuffing them to either collect dust. Both individuals and companies often have surplus assets and materials hidden across different buildings, storage rooms, or warehouses. As a result, new resources are bought when not needed they are often discarded at a later stage to become a landfill. Though, right now, there’s Airbnb which allows making money by sharing under-utilized property & Uber which allows making money by sharing under-utilized vehicles. Therefore, now there is a way to make money by sharing your under-utilized items in the need of the hour. This is by renting or selling idle assets. And, while the idea is great to develop the reuse strategy, the lack of visibility and utilization affects their asset management.
Know how we helped build a cloud-based Peer-to-Peer (P2P) rental eCommerce marketplace platform that caters to P2P, Business-to-Business (B2B) & Business-to-Customer (B2C) segments. This makes it easy for organizations & even individuals to find and re-use the resource for short-term use or before making a purchasing decision.
An NZ-based startup through a basic mobile application offered P2P asset management. Their business vision was to create a holistic resource exchange platform (for all types of items) that caters to P2P, B2B & B2C segments. Towards this, they were in pursuit of an experienced IT partner to build an intuitive & smart system across mobile and web. It would include features and functionalities that allow users to exchange or sell everything from gardening equipment, tools, and sports gear to furniture and electronics.
