What is On Demand? Why On Demand? How to achieve it?
Allow yourself to step off the holding of a laundry or dry cleaning business owner for a while. Step in the shoes of a regular consumer. What are your daily needs in the current day and how are they fulfilled?
Let’s take an example.
Remember the old days, when for hiring a taxi you’d walk halfway with your luggage to the taxi stand, find a taxi (if you are lucky enough) and then still be worried about the fare?
And now, with just one simple click on your smartphone over the Uber app, you get a ride in no time, plus the features which allow you to make choices about payment, time, fare, location and also gives you numerous other options to choose from.
Well, that’s on-demand business model for you. Uber is one of the most significant examples of this economy. In this article, I’m going to show you how YOU can be the Uber of the Dry Cleaning and Laundry Business. Let’s go step-by-step.
What is on-demand?
As simply as the word goes, on-demand means a business model where everything required by a customer is available on his demand, at his location, at his preferred time and cost. In an on-demand economy, the customers get immediate access to services or products via technology.
For example: A dry cleaner offering on-demand would give his/her customers the freedom to choose pick-up/delivery dates and times hence reducing the cases of wrong or late deliveries. Imagine how happy and satisfied your customers will become and guess what, this is just one of the few things offered by on demand dry cleaning business software.
Every economy is run by its consumers, and the present generation has already witnessed a paradigm shift in the consumer behavior. Today people want the instant gratification of their needs, and that is why on-demand works.
Now, the paradigm has shifted from ownership to accessibility. Nobody cares about owning a BMW but surely appreciates if he/she could hire/rent the BMW in the hour of need. Same goes for all business models adopted by similar apps like Uber, Jugnoo, Urbanclap, Swiggy, and others.
“The on-demand hyper-growth is upon us. In the next 5 to 20 years most of the people will be able to get anything within a 5 to 60-minute window.” -Gary V. (Author, SME, and Entrepreneur)
The need or demand arises every day, and as an entrepreneur, you need to figure out a way to fill the gap between demand and supply and present your customers with a service or a product that is convenient, fast, cheap, and minimizes human efforts.

Coming to the dry cleaning business, are you able to fulfill the demands of your customers? Are you available for your customers in a 5 to 60-minute window? Because if you are not, then sadly someone else will grab the opportunity and take your customers away.
