Moving ahead, read on top three powerful solutions that you can consider before developing on-demand car wash app like Washé.
To unriddle the problems of your consumers, it is important to maximize the efficiency of your brand. Because more efficiency means more productivity. Before changing anything, you need to learn how to identify the inefficient process in your current startup’s business model. The business must work for both businesses and consumers as Washé app does.
The idea of bringing services to the consumer is growing interest in an on-demand world, where you can order nearly anything online, and have it show up at user’s location.
Another solution that can be provided by any startup under the category of on-demand is convenience. How can you achieve it? By just eliminating the inconvenience as customers can actually feel more connected to particular product or service, where they get convenience in every manner. This is same as applies here.
Being a startup company, you need to understand the real-life problems of your customers in the particular location. One of the main inconveniences that faced by people was the never-ending waiting line to get the services done, for example, on-demand car wash service.
Washé understands this problem of people and provides convenience to them by delivering on-demand car wash service at their location. Additionally, there are two key points, including ease and convenience that offer good service by placing stumbling blocks in customers’ ways with the aim of offering an enhanced experience.
On-demand business is all about providing a rich experience to B2B and B2C world. You as a startup need to take all the friction out of the process. Once the user downloads the app, he/she will create a profile and pick up from four packages as per their convenience, ranging from $30 to $120. With just a tap of “Wash Me Now!” button, the washer is deployed to the user’s location like home or office.
The washer would already have all his/her car washing equipment. So that, the job can be done anytime and anywhere. And, there is no need of anything from customer’s end like power or water. The company is allowing its users or customers to set their own hours and are paid through the app, including tip. These payments are automatically deposited into washers bank accounts.
Once the job is done, customers will get a photo of the work, and they can tip or rate the washer within the on-demand car wash app. Furthermore, startups need to use the service as lead generation, allowing them to focus on making money.
Meanwhile, the company’s focus must be also on the customer’s experience like washing equipment and power, they will get high-quality car washing service. This is one of the examples of providing rich experience to customers or B2C (business to consumer) world along with total comfort and security.
If we’re talking about the B2B (business to business) services, Washé company has already set their services for them. Beyond the consumer-facing service, the startup company offers service for businesses who want to offer car washes as an amenity for employees, customers or other on-site. You as a startup company can offer tech platforms for businesses to track and manage car wash activity. Recently, it partners with the corporations, hotels, travel companies, and valets, including Office Depot Curbstand, Citrix, Jetsmarter, and the Setai Hotel.
The B2B (Business to business) is more flexible; however, offering more options for packages and pricing as well as specific times, the on-demand car wash service must be available. The startup company fundraises for both B2C (Business to Consumer) and B2B (Business to Business) operations. An on-demand car wash service offers an innovative platform for both Businesses and consumers. So, you as a startup should think for both business-to-business and business-to-consumer and provide optimal solutions to them.
There has been a rapid increase in the on-demand economy for past few years. If you as a startup have an idea of creating an app like Uber for a car wash, then you just need to cross-verify your app idea with any mobile app development company or hire a professional full stack developer, who has an experience in developing mobile apps for varied categories.
