On-demand mobile services enable individuals to request things from the physical world from their mobile devices. Those “things” might be a car from Uber or grocery order from Instacart. Or in the case of our guests on the show, a parcel pickup from Shyp or delivery from a store from Postmates.
On demand mobile services have, for the most part, been a consumer phenomenon to date. However, the opportunity to serve businesses in this space is just around the corner. In this podcast, Kevin Gibbon from Shyp and Sara Mauskopf from Postmates share their views on the market for on demand mobile services in the business world.
Thanks to our good friend, Semil Shah, for leading this discussion with Kevin and Sara.
