Triumph of platform is more than its scalability

Easiway

Let’s start with why.

Why is the platform business model conquering industries after industries around the globe? Well, it’s because of its flexibility to help business to scale up more, create new values and changes our lives.

Businesses can stand on platforms together and get lifted up, up and beyond. Look at Uber, AirBnb, Amazon and more. Platforms are touching many aspects of our daily lives and expanding.

Anything can happen with it. You can create values by mixing and matching different blocks of products made by different businesses or even individuals like you and me. No real need to go through the hassle of M&A. Actually, the simpler it is, the better.

Small or big, you’re in as a producer, consumer or developer who can add useful functions for other players. But on one crucial condition: You have to add value. You just need to tug really hard at the right timing.

A good platform is a collection of motivated players that aim to become a vibrant community. It’s democratic. Platforms rely on the network effects to work. They need to attract more players to interact and create value.
It’s easy to grow fast and efficiently.

Platform has been here all along. But why it is dominating the markets now?

The millennials, young adults born after 1980, also known as Generation Y, are taking over the boomers now. They have been through a hard time after the 2008 recession, triggering them to rethink what it means to be successful.
According to a 2011 data by the Career Advisory Board, young adults ages 21-31 wanted jobs that had a sense of meaning.

What does meaning mean? Emily Esfahani Smith and Jennifer L. Aaker’s joint study states that “People who lead meaningful lives feel connected to others, to work, to a life purpose, and to the world itself.” They find purpose in life in doing good for others and “orient themselves to a larger purpose.”

Platform’s success can go an extra mile if it keeps reminding its players that they are here to create value and purpose bigger than themselves. Adding reviews of your Uber drivers boost service quality of the whole platform. Bringing in more hosts on Airbnb allows consumers to have more options around the world. Adding friends on Facebook introduced new and diverse content on the Internet.

Little by little everyone can contribute and change the world. People are willing to be a part of big movements so platforms are here to stay.

Easiway all the way

A new year is upon us. The air is fresher, the sky is bluer and the night is dreamier.

We hope your holidays were splendid.

Some of us at Easiway spent it winning on a Netflix marathon or diving into the warm bosom of our living room couch. Others were more out there on diamond shores of Vietnam or hunting the northern lights in Iceland.

2017’s finally here and Easiway is more than ready to ride with you.

We will continue to help you to move as planned on your schedule seamlessly.

With our cross-border shuttle service, we want you to get home to your families in time for dinner because you can book tickets ahead and save a seat.

Not only that, we want you to commute across the border between Hong Kong and Shenzhen at an affordable price with ticket prices starting from 38 CNY.

On our premium chauffeured rides, we want you to stay focused on business until you arrive. Just so you know, we offer rides that cross the border and those that don’t.

After a long flight, we want you to transfer to your hotel hassle free with the help of Easiway’s professional chauffeurs.

We want everyone to travel Hong Kong and Shenzhen area easily even if you are not a fluent Chinese speaker. Our services are available in English, Korean and Chinese.

We will continue to make your travel better and seek solutions. We are currently building a platform aimed at connecting transport operators so our pool of rides will grow for you.

It will take a while, but we are getting there. Taking small steps at a time, we will look back and see how much we have accomplished soon enough.

Since it’s a new year, we are allowed to say something cheesy. So here it goes:

 

Dear valued customers,

Thank you for sticking around.

There is no Easiway if there is no you. We won’t forget that. EVER!

This year will be great for us and it will be marvelous for you, too. We just can feel it in our bones.

Your feedback is always welcomed. Ride with us and we will help you get there.

We can’t say this enough: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

Faithfully yours,
Easiway team
