Let’s go something further. In recent times, new more sophisticated ‘services to companies’ have emerged and many of them are surprising.
We speak, for example, of a job portal for the hospitality sector alone, management of the online reputation of the managers of a company, training of those same professionals with trained dogs, 3D suits for your staff … These are some of the concepts here included. The common denominator of all of them is originality.
1) ONLINE TICKET SALE FOR… EVENTS
There are numerous portals dedicated to the sale of tickets for concerts, plays, movies … References, in general, linked to leisure. And why not do the same with other types of events? Although the niche is clear, you can also offer products from the world of entertainment, being today the most demanded.
2) THE EYES OF HOTELS ON THE NETWORK
The online reputation of companies is already giving a lot to talk about. Rather, the analysis of the impact on them of the comments of users on the Web. A phenomenon around which first-order opportunities arise. The novelty here lies in focusing on a single market.
It is a scenario where hoteliers can be helped to manage their reputation in the main online travel agencies and to measure their presence in social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. We are facing a project at the forefront, with a philosophy that could be applied to other sectors, such as fashion stores or travel agencies.
3) FREELANCES OF THE WORLD
The extreme division is a working method originating in the United States. His approach is that any project can be developed with more quality and better cost if it is fragmented into small plots, of which several professionals are involved.
The question is, why not transfer this innovative operation to other areas?
4) INCREASED AND MOBILE REALITY
A lecturer gives a talk, while around him virtual elements emerge as the speech advances. This is one of the uses of augmented reality, a product that any event firm can hire today. The novelty lies in marketing the service designed for mobile, almost unprecedented in the Spanish market.
5) ELECTRONIC BILLING 2.0
The electronic invoice is becoming hollow and, with it, the entrepreneurs who provide services linked to their integration into companies. Here we highlight a business opportunity: to develop products that adapt, at every moment, to the needs of the client and his market, without additional costs. From here, the operation is integral.
6) UNIFORMED WORKERS IN 3D
The new employee arrives, they ask him his size and they give him the uniform. This is the usual channel to equip the worker. What we show you now is a service where the procedure changes thanks to the use of the most avant-garde technologies.
How? In this case, the key is to take measures to all staff with a 3D scanning technique, through which you get a complete radiography of each individual. The next step is to design the tailored suits.
This operation allows the company to use only the strictly necessary material, something valuable when talking about high-cost components, such as gore tex or kevlar … and more today. Your potential seems clear.
7) HEARING ANALYSIS
With DTT, new business opportunities were born around them. Its definitive implementation has changed the way we watch television, but also the way to advertise. Companies require someone to guide them in a scenario where there are more channels, the public is more fragmented, the personal computer gains weight as support …
Today it is vital to study the audience from a qualitative point of view, not as before. The information is extracted from a group of panelists who, from their homes, interact with the application. To do this, they use their mobile phones, which use remote control, devices with which they will respond to surveys, evaluate programs … Mobility, again, at the center of a cutting-edge business. The future is here.
8) DEMOCRATIZE INFORMATION
This is about giving the innovative initiative to employees. Not only to trust the R & D departments. For this, a technological platform is commercialized where people can present their ideas, comments and share them with everyone.
It is also an online space that they place on the intranet as a driving force for internal innovation, for employees, or in the extranet of clients. The challenge would be to offer the service also to those SMEs with a certain number of workers, enough to generate an attractive volume of ideas.
9) SOCIAL REPUTATION FOR DIRECTORS
No longer a company (more trite), but its managers. The service meets a need of today’s society. On the Internet, everything that is said is registered and exposed to the scrutiny of millions of Internet users.
In this scenario it seems logical the existence of firms that ensure the good name of managers.
10) SELECTION OF PERSONNEL
We are used to the general employment portals. The question is: Why not take your operating model to a specific sector?
There are firms that have focused on hospitality. And why not fashion stores?
