(PowerKorea) The advent of mobility platforms has made moving of the people more convenient than ever. Seeing the huge market potential, new mobility platforms are being introduced and thus the competition is fierce. Kakao Mobility seems to take the lead followed by a number of large companies such as TADA and Socar. But the rapid progress of relatively small mobility companies is worth paying attention too for different ideas and services.
Kim Sang-young, CEO of Acarz, worked as a board member of Sequencen that runs a car community boasting 18 million members. Launching Acarz three years ago, he made cardong (Kim is also CEO of this) as the financial partner and took some of its stake.
What Acarz does is this: information of newly released models, car insurance, car insurance comparison, parking, repairing, car washing, e-commerce, funding and used care dealing. CEO Kim is encouraged on the fact that a number of large companies including Samsung Card, Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance and Nexen Tire are seeking a possibility to make a partnership by seeing its influence and bright growth prospective.
Taking the momentum, Kim is expanding its scope of services to package deals, tuning and scrapping while sharing part of the force in building a Youtube channel and a Naver Post to enhance marketing and communication.
And singing a partnership with Sequencen is a great opportunity for Kim to secure its 18 million members as potential clients of Acarz. Also promising a fact is that Acarz has signed a MOU with KEB Hana and Car Auction through cardong to launch a used car direct selling platform which will be the first case in terms of involving a large bank. While the industry is watching with keen eye, Acarz has received numerous prizes in major awards already.
