Undertake with Digital business, design and innovation
Have you imagined yourself starting a business from scratch and creating the project of your dreams? Daniel Socias and Tadas Krasaitis, entrepreneurs and students of the Digital Business Design & Innovation degree at La Salle URL, present their projects, Wiongo and ADCRent Car Sharing.
Two totally innovative and transformative firms created from scratch by university students. In today's post we talk about the story of Wiongo and ADCRent.
The impact of the pandemic has accelerated business change, creating new business models through digital platforms. The digital transformation process has adapted the mechanics of business by enabling the digitization and automation of manual techniques.
Red Hat experts conducted a survey of different organizations revealing that 84% have had to adapt their work methodology and culture after the pandemic, forced to work remotely and in a decentralized way. Covid-19 has accelerated transformational projects, enabling greater customer interaction through digital platforms.
Projects for digital acceleration and transformation have grown by 57% and 48% of businesses have as their main challenge to implement business models that fit with current digital needs.
The advent of mobile devices, the internet of things and cloud operations have begun to replace manual methods. Business processes are digitized allowing greater autonomy and optimizing the customer experience.
We find more and more innovative and transformative projects that focus on improving process automation, analytics and artificial intelligence.
The students of the Digital Business, design and innovation degree at La Salle URL have seen change as an opportunity, developing new digital and innovative business models with new technologies.
To become the first company based on telecom 3.0. That is the main purpose of Wiongo, the project led by Daniel Socias, a fourth-year student of the Digital Business Design & Innovation degree that seeks to facilitate the transformation of a tourist destination into a smart tourist destination.
"The Wiongo project already has more than 2200 Lorawan connectivity points + 600 outdoor air quality stations. We still plan on expanding between 2000 and 3000 indoor air quality stations." Daniel Socias
Wiongo is a project in the development and expansion phase. Through integrations in blockchain technology it performs installations of LoRaWAN networks and air quality stations. For Wiongo, connectivity is a must in today's societies, that's why it supplies smart tourist destinations with lorawan connectivity, wi-fi and premium air quality data, meeting the needs of residents, tourists and businesses.
Daniel recalls the beginning of the project with intensity and strength. Wiongo emerged with the cryptocurrency boom in 2019. All kinds of companies related to telecom 3.0 started the journey, and it was from that emergence that they integrated new projects within our ecosystem, such as air quality sensors or lorawan connectivity.
"Wiongo wants to become the first company based on telecom 3.0. A company based on decentralized projects with blockchain integration " Daniel Socias.
Wiongo, was nominated by Wireless Broadband Alliance among the three best urban Wi-fi deployments in the world. An innovative and transformative technological project that responds to current social and business needs.
ADCRent Car Sharing
This project was developed with the idea of creating a platform where both car owners and users can rent and use vehicles temporarily and safely. ADCRent Car Sharing was created in 2021 by Tadas Krasaitis, an international student of La Salle URL.
Tadas is a Lithuanian student (Vilnius) who together with his team has been working on the expansion of the ADCRent project for more than a year, with a total of 1200 cars available for rent and 5000 active users in and around Lithuania.
"A car is not used 95% of the time in its useful life. On average, a person who rents his car on our platform earns about 800€ per month from 2 - 3 reservations" Tadas Krasaitis
ACDRent Car Sharing emerged with the pandemic by positioning itself as a car rental company with its own parking lot. During the supply chain crisis, car rental companies sold about 50% of the vehicles. Once it was possible to travel again, demand increased, and the rental companies could not keep up with the demand. This gave rise to the idea of creating a new platform where users could rent their cars and recover part of the vehicle costs.
The platform, in addition to increasing the income of those who want to rent their car, makes it possible to find prices of up to 20% less for those looking to rent a vehicle. ADCRent Car Sharing also provides small and large companies with rental vehicles with low commissions of 10%.
"Since the start of our platform in 2021, on May 25, we have more than 1200 cars all over Lithuania, as well as in Riga and soon in Tenerife" Tadas Krasaitis
ADCRent Car Sharing is a platform designed to solve mobility problems in Lithuania and will soon arrive in Spain.
Daniel Socias and Tadas Krasaitis, are students of the Digital Business, Design and Innovation degree. During their degree they have been able to understand the basics of entrepreneurship and digital business, creating two totally innovative and transformative projects.
