Growing Opportunity Pipeline Demonstrates Diverse and Expanding Demand for Logistical Solutions
NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DropCar, Inc. (NASDAQ:DCAR), a leading provider of app-based mobility services and logistics for both automotive business providers and consumers, today issued an update on the progress being made with its B2B managed services and SaaS efforts.
“Last week, we announced the positive results we have seen in our B2C business as we began shifting to our higher-margin consumer self-park program, which has the optional valet component for consumers. This transition has enabled us to accelerate our emphasis on building out our SaaS technology and B2B pipeline while reducing burn and growing positive margins,” stated DropCar CEO Spencer Richardson.
In 2016, DropCar (www.dropcar.com) launched its B2B managed services program by offering automotive partners mobility logistics services in New York and has since expanded its B2B managed services program to Washington, D.C, San Francisco and Los Angeles. In July 2018, DropCar announced it would start marketing a stand-alone SaaS product, Mobility Cloud, where clients who manage their own drivers and vehicle movements are charged a recurring monthly subscription fee to utilize DropCar’s vehicle assistance and logistical support platform.
In addition to supporting automotive dealers, who are finding their value proposition and profit centers shifting towards maintenance and service operations management, rather than traditional vehicle sales, the Mobility Cloud platform is also designed to be a plug-and-play system. The Mobility Cloud supports operations management and accountability for the rapidly multiplying wave of new businesses looking to develop new shared mobility models. According to a McKinsey&Company report, “the automotive revenue pool will significantly increase and diversify toward on-demand mobility services and data-driven services,” with an estimated $1.5 trillion contribution to industry revenues by 2030, up from a current estimate of $30 billion today.
According to David Newman, Chief Business Development Officer, “On the SaaS side, last month we commenced an aggressive outreach focused on automotive dealerships nationwide which we believe will start generating new paying accounts over the coming months. Meanwhile, we have seen strong interest continuing to build in our managed services pipeline which includes not only automotive dealers but car sharing programs, fleet management firms, car rental companies, corporate fleets for municipalities and other vehicle centric enterprises which include, but are not limited to, proposals for:
- Multi-city rollout of comprehensive onboarding, vehicle movement and car maintenance services for a car sharing company;
- Movements for a pre-owned vehicle subscription program;
- Airport logistics for a major rental car company; and
- Fleet management services for a major U.S. city municipal vehicle fleet including car charging and car care.
Management believes that DropCar is ideally suited to resolve the broad spectrum of challenges facing these nationwide players in urban cities and has proven its expert logistical and technology capabilities for its growing roster of existing and potential B2B clients in key urban markets across the country.”
