Uberfication of Everything



THE UBERFICATION OF EVERTHING. -Dr. Okechukwu Ekemezie

            Software will disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10 years.
Uber is just a software tool, they don’t own any cars, and are now the biggest taxi company in the world (and are already championing Electric and driverless cars). Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the world , although they don’t own any properties.
A lot of rising high tech companies are using the UBER model in their start-up business ( a process called Uberfication). So if your business cannot be done on the phone, forget it, run away from it, because its likely that in the next 5-10 years, you will likely be out of business. A perfect example is Kodak company. In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 empoyees and sold out 85% of all photo paper worldwide. In 2001, their business model disappeared and they went bankrupt. What happened to Kodak will happen to a lot of industries in a couple of years if they don’t aggressively use I.T. and the internet to their advantage.
The 21st century will see the addition of new vocabulary. To “Uberfy” or get “Uberfied” simply means “tap the phone, get service” , life couldn’t be better than this.
Uber the on-demand ‘driver for hire’ mobile service(ODMS) has become the poster-child for digital disruption and convenience tech.
Uber, bank rolled by google, is disrupting(destroying) traditional taxi services by delivering more value (mostly convenience value) to ‘value-maximising’ customers through a smart mix of ‘regulatory hacking’ and technology.
And so digital innovators are seeking to ‘uberfy’ the world with convenient on-demand mobile services that digitally and conveniently match demand with supply.
So here’s an evolving master list of Uber-style services that match on demand requests with real time supply..(please add more in the comments section).

Uber for liquor delivery: saucey, Drizly, Minibar
Uber for hotel rooms: HotelTonight
Uber for car repairs: YourMechanic
Uber for pizza delivery: Push for Pizza
Uber for Doctor: Medicast, Pager…, and of course my own online DIGITAL DOCTOR ( Docotal)
Uber for taxis: Lyft
Uber for private jets: Blackjet
And the lists go on and on……..

            So in this information age, starting a business just require an internet connection with a smart phone. So we can all start our own businesses, just look for any problem around you and start thinking of how you can develop an app to solve humanity’s problem and make th world better than you met it.

Call To Action(CTA) After reading through one article , my friend and I decided to ‘Uberfy healthcare’ and Docotal: Digital Doctors was born. You can do the same.
Remember Boldness has Magic and Power. So begin now, begin today.
