SEOUL, South Korea, Oct. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Korea's first blockchain project BOScoin (www.boscoin.io, CEO: Yezune Choi, Company name: BlockchainOS) announced that the next generation mobility platform Nature Mobility (CEO: Ju-sang Lee), which is one of 4 partners selected through the Reverse ICO Partner Program launched last June, introduced an IT solution for small and midsized rent-a-car companies in Jeju Island, Zzimcar Direct.
Zzimcar Direct is a rent-a-car turnkey solution for small to medium rent-a-car companies that the members can process online reservation in real time and offer a variety of convenient payment methods as well as differentiated promotions while interacting with customers. The companies can also customize the UI design.
Nature Mobility is currently operating Zzimcar (http://zzimcar.co.kr) , a real-time rent-a-car price comparison platform in alliance with 32 rent-a-car companies in Jeju Island with a fleet of over 5,000 cars. The Zzimcar Direct solution is offered for free to the rent-a-car companies using the Zzim car platform. Orange Rent-a-Car became the first company to adopt the solution. By November, the number of the companies to adopt the solution will increase to more than 10 companies as other companies like Jeju Samsung Rent-a-Car and Nokwon Rent-a-Car join in.
Rent-a-car companies are welcoming the launch of Zzimcar Direct and expecting that the solution will allow them to gain a competitive edge in terms of service convenience and marketing. In addition, through the Zzimcar group purchase mall for the members, rent-a-car companies will be able to receive maintenance service and buy cars at a much lower price, enabling them to reduce costs as well. When small to midsized rent-a-car companies in Jeju can bolster their own marketing/customer service abilities and reduce costs by using the Zzimcar Direct, they won't have to rely on large platforms, which means they will enjoy the benefits of 'decentralization' by getting back their own price policy and rights to make a profit.
"Established centralized platforms like travel agencies and large rent-a-car price comparison sites take about 20% commission from rent-a-car car companies, while Zzimcar can keep it to one digit by using its own platform," said Ju-sang Lee, CEO of Nature Mobility.
"With Zzimcar and ZZimcar Direct, a BOScoin partner Nature Mobility tries to help companies build self-capability by lowering the intermediary commission through decentralization of the rent a car industry in Jeju," said Yezune Choi, CEO of BOScoin. "We will continue to discover companies with great potential through the Reverse ICO Partner Program which we apply public financing to contribute to bringing beneficial changes in the real world."
Korea's first blockchain project BOScoin was launched by BlockchainOS in May 2017 through an ICO. Five hundred million BOScoins were first released, and the ICO of BOScoin reached 15.7 billion won hardcap within 9 minutes from the start. Approximately 60 billion won worth fundraising was completed within 17 hours. BOScoin opened its testnet source in June and prepares to open its mainnet based on its own technology at the end of this year. It is seeking partners who pursue to build an innovative business model by grafting blockchain technology onto their industry on the BOScoin platform, pushing ahead with the creation of BOScoin ecosystem.
