Millions of mexicans “have died” of laughter with that scene. The Pitch of Javi Noble to his dad to create a service of delivery of gasoline to the residence via an app. It was the year of 2013 and then it sounded like a bad joke, but we now know that the mirrey most famous mexican movie not only I was not so wrong with their occurrence, was a true visionary.
In the united States the services of a “gas delivery” pathway applications are thriving and already are recognized as Start-ups really successful. From may 2015, The Verge already got the alert about the birth of this type of services. “Like Uber, but to put gas in your car”, he called it.
Since then, several media outlets have closely followed the emergence of various services such as WeFuel,Filld, Yoshi, Try Booster, FuelMe and several more that have confirmed that there is a market millionaire for these entrepreneurs style Javi Noble.
Means of high reach and impact as the USA Today, and NBC have devoted complete pieces to talk about in this segment is clearly growing. “These Start-ups say they are in a very serious persecution by the market of 320,000 million dollars of gasoline in the united States, and it seems to have at least a competitive advantage that its competitors: lower Cost than gas stations, that have invested in properties and equipment,” said USA Today in its article “Gas delivery apps are new on-demand fad” (Apps delivery of gasoline are novelty-on-demand).
Another article on the site Jungle Works confirms the great moment that have already lived for the past two years, the apps of gas delivery and describes several of them. “Gasoline ‘on-demand’ it is difficult to imagine for a commodity product such as gasoline. However, the latest target for disruptive innovation in the technology are the gas stations. To test, in the last 20 months at least eight Start-ups have taken off with the theme of “Uber gas” your gas tank is filled while your car is parked somewhere or where you need it”, writes in his article Jungle Works.
This week, a contributor to the site lifehacker.com made an article about her experience using the app of Yoshi, one of the largest in the united States with a presence in 14 states. In his report confirms not only that these types of services actually delivered gasoline cheaper, but also reinforces the desirability of the concept of saving time and the use of the car itself.
A report from a local television in the neighbor to the north even ensures that this business model could be the beginning of the end for petrol stations, traditional processes that we are already living with authentic industries such as Uber (and end up with the taxis), Airbnb (revolutionizing the hotel industry) or Rapid (food at home without a single tomato).
In Latin america there are not yet signs that we can count on the services of gasoline to address in the short term. What is certain is that the market and regulations of the region behave very differently, which often delayed the arrival of innovations in technology. But there is something that we can all agree on, it is time to offer an apology collective Javi Noble. OH YOU WERE RIGHT DAD! Maybe is time to see how the market is going from cubas largest in the world.
