UrbanRent helps the target audience who want to be entrepreneurs and run their business by opening an online rental store on its platform. "There are two main expectations from the users choice and rental price. We make the widest range of products available to our customers, and we are aggressively pursuing new owners and product categories. And the owners, in turn help us in getting the renters because of the choice offered on the platform," proclaims Shirish. UrbanRent offers a robust inventory management system to the owners to manage their rentals. People can add products to their rental store make it inactive, or make it available only in a certain time.
Ensuring that the owners and renters trust each other was a challenge. UrbanRent won it by deploying automated solutions that verify user's documents that are uploaded on the app. The other challenge was to ensure quality, and it implemented a two-way review and rating system by which an owner and a renter can both leave reviews for each other. The team weans out the undesirable users from the app. The app is currently available on Android and iOS, and the team is working to make the user experience better every day. UrbanRent is leading the B2C and C2C realm and envisions entering into B2B as well. It is expanding its product categories for rent and adding more products to the existing categories. "Our next step is to ensure that our business model supports our ambition to increase and improve the top line. We are looking to support our business and stakeholders using the cash we generate from the business itself. By focussing on our product portfolio and new space, we will meet these goals shortly, "he concludes.
