像Uber一樣簡單 代客除雪App上線

Posted in World Journal 時值1月,新州居民已有三次鏟雪經歷,令許多人苦不堪言。新進入新州市場的智慧手機App「SnoHub」或許能夠輕鬆解決問題,這個類似優步(Uber)一樣的應用程式,能在居民下單後十分鐘,就有人上門來清理積雪,但也被詬病價格偏高、必要性不強。 據新州先進傳媒(NJ Advance Media)報導,「SnoHub」去年冬季在康州興起,今冬進入紐約、波士頓、費城和新澤西。該公司公關代表里德(Ashley Read)表示,統計顯示許多家庭不在家中備有現金,特別是在暴風雪期間,因此很難為掃雪的工人和高中生支付現金,「能夠使用信用卡的App將是提供服務的最好選擇」。 「SnoHub」目前安卓和蘋果手機都可下載,用戶需輸入自家的車道(driveway)類型和長度,以及想要清理的地方,可選項包括前、後、側門走道、車庫門前,以及為車道、走道撒化雪鹽等。根據新州先進傳媒記者Jessica Remo實測,6吋雪的車道清理價格為59元起,隨後每吋雪加收10元;需要清理正門步道和側門步道,則需額外各加收25元。這比起美國傳統高中生來掃雪的價格高出不少,且由於App需與承包商分成,許多工人更願意住戶直接與他們聯繫。 里德表示「SnoHub」目前在新州擁有50家有保險和設備的承包商,並已有超過200戶註冊家庭。目前類似傳統行業與智慧手機相結合的創意越來越多,是否能夠為用戶帶來便利,是否具有不可替代性,成為這些行業的問題。專家指出,較為高昂的價格,以及居民和承包商建立起聯繫後是否還會使用此程式,都將是「SnoHub」所需面臨的挑戰。
