Petrol World highlights new Washos-Hyundai partnership

Washos and Hyundai’s partnership is to provide on-demand car cleaning through its Blue Link connected car package. This will enable subscribers to schedule a wash through the Hyundai companion app, following which a Washos crew will show up and clean the vehicle.

“This proof of concept will allow us to understand the benefits, requirements and challenges of linking to third party providers. Developing an open Blue Link ecosystem creates a myriad of possible business models for the future,” said Manish Mehrotra, director of digital business planning and connected operations for Hyundai Motor America.

According to the companies, the Smartcar/Blue Link infrastructure will provide Washos the ability to locate an owner’s Hyundai and access it without keys or the owner being present so a detailer could quickly clean the car, inside and out and alert the driver of when the job is complete.

Already, employment in the gig economy is growing faster than traditional payroll employment, according to the Metropolitan Policy Program at the Brookings Institution.

“While there are of course pros and cons to gig economy employment, many workers are drawn to the flexibility of being able to work during times that suit their own schedule,” said Patriarca.
