The collaborative economy, also referred to as the sharing economy is taking the internet off the storm. Being the newest phase of the web world, it has paved a novel way of utilizing assets in an efficient and resilient manner. This gave rise to a dire need of developing a platform which allows people to utilize infrastructure and resources that aren’t used effectively.
Given the fact that there are a whole lot of consumer items – a hammer, a tent, a badminton racket and the likes, which most of us have, but lie unused most of the times; if aptly put to use can be advantageous for both the parties – renter and owner. This thought of bridging the exchange gap between the borrower and the lender, and making underutilized assets available to people by the means of technology thereby facilitating ease of discovery and hence, the access, resulted in the establishment of Rentomo.
Rentomo is a trusted community that enables people in renting out their not-so-used stuff, besides borrowing items which they wish to use once in a while. It connects you to people who are a part of a reliable community and encourages them to share stuff with those residing nearby in the times of need. To be precise, this worthy platform proffers users with the facility to borrow or rent items that they may bring to occasional use, such as a drill, ladder, camera, bicycle, travel bags etc.
Rentomo works on the notion, “Why buy when you can borrow.” At Rentomo, we operate with the aim to provide people with the access to things they need without having to own them, which saves them money. Wondering how would you trust the lender or borrower? This is where technology comes into the picture. Rentomo is building up an aggregator platform using the edge cutting technology to deliver you a comprehensive experience of sharing stuff among trusted communities, societies, groups or friends.
We, at Rentomo, work with a mission to build a locality that offers you an instant access to almost everything in no time, and endeavor to turn every city into a ‘sharing city’ by making users realize that access to the stuff they need is cheaper, hassle free and greener than ownership of a product.
