Mint Money, Save Space with GetMyCar
Parking your car in a busy city in Europe is an expensive proposition. The problem remains identical across the continent; The average cost of parking in the 32 European cities at is 3 euros an hour. Stretched across weeks and months, an idle car hemorrhages precious capital.
However, a startup has ventured into the car rental community with a twist. Instead of parking your car and pay a hefty fee, you can now put the car up for rent and earn money instead. Sounds good, right?
GetMyCar brands itself as a Car Rental and Car Sharing Community. Through their platform a user can book or share a car in real time. A comprehensive application that allows a complete transaction for borrowing a car including reservations, pick & drop coordination and payments. This allows for reducing car management costs. With all other worries out of the way, driving will be your only concern.
La parola d’ordine della nostra #innovativa #community di Car Rental & Car Sharing è: #YesWeShare! Un nuovo concetto di mobilità ti aspetta con #GetMyCar, ora in #sardegna da ottobre in tutta #italia. #carrentals #carsharing #sardinia #emehari #wrap #grafica #personalizzazione #smartmobility #peertopeercarrental #peertopeercarsharing #sharingeconomy #puntaldia #Olbia
GetMyCar required an application that would get their business from brick-and-mortar setup to online and generate revenue. With high rising costs for parking, car ownership while parking can be an expensive enterprise. Our app was meant to make profits for cars that sat idle and cost their owners monetarily.
This meant that both users renting a car and listing them would have to use an application designed with a great UI/ UX and streamlined business logic.
One of our seasoned analysts recorded all the requirements and challenges in tandem with the client. He proposed a solution consisting of a web portal that would host both rental and listing services with a respective dashboard for both parties. The design was kept simple yet elegant. Here is what we had to offer:
Rent a Car
Renting a car is easy. Select the location you want to visit and dates, find the car and book. Reach your selected location and pick up the car. Easy!
List your Car
GetMyCar allows for users to list their car online to help save parking costs AND make money instead of the car sitting idle. Just publish the ad, upload your car into the platform and start to share its costs.
Effective Grouping and Tracking
GetMyCar keeps track of car inventory to make sure that a car is shown to be available, only when it’s available. This helps avoid overbooking, and in turn, irritated customers. Real-time inventory updates help prevent overlapping of company assets as well.
GetMyCar has also been featured in social media mentions in popular magazines.
GetMyCar also offers ParkingGO services such as insurance on cars being taken for hire. The services are integrated with GetMyCar.
Virtual Force designed payment gateway for its client and gave the option of following payment methods as well:

GetMyCar has gained traction for tourist destinations in Europe and offers competitive packages along with the option for parking spaces as well. It is steadily growing in popularity with tourists and locals alike.
Virtual Force offered a time-effective solution that notably accelerated the launch of the Study Abroad Apartments. The project has gotten immensely positive feedback from its target niche as well. Thousands of students have so far availed the service while a collaborative relationship has been made with partner universities as well.
