Shared economic growth Thanks to strong publicity from companies like Airbnb and Uber, the “shared economy” has emerged as a hot topic in travel, technology, and business. On the customer front, Airbnb and Uber have done well and thrived. The two companies are now developing a unique service for business travelers, which allows customers to ask themselves three questions:
• Sharing economy jobs add value to my trip?
• Should our travelers be allowed to share resources with other providers?
• How do we manage importers of these products and incorporate them into our program and how should we manage how our passengers use them?
This is not an easy question to answer. You will compare sharing economy providers with cultural providers such as restaurants and taxi companies. And it promotes more ideas about safety, performance, price, and how the product provider fits into your company culture.
