Innovation

Innovation has three basic pillars:

1. Imported organic products of high technology.

2. Professional washing technique that ensures quality.

3. Ecological process that tries to reduce the negative externalities of washing by a large percentage. A conventional wash apart from wasting between 80 and 120 liters of water that contributes to the contamination of water sources with soapy water.

Eco- Friendly, Effective and Efficient Car Wash

Inspiration

His founder, Manuel Romero, business administrator, from a long season abroad, seeing the best practices of other countries, wanted to bring the idea of ecological washing at home.

“My motivation emerged mainly from the environmental impact, for the efficient use of natural resources, innovating in an excessive search for water savings and the same time to provide people time solutions."

Overall impact

It is a mobile platform where you can schedule the car wash service at home, through which a delegate partner to deliver and collect the service (Auapper) is assigned in order to prove the service under the determined standards by the platform. We are a technology-based-service; the main channel to offer this service is the mobile app, which aims to offer value to corporate customers and users with a friendly, convenient, and agile interface about the car wash service.

Business benefit

They have been running around a year and a half with all the implementation of the platform and knowledge to customers, to date there are 200,000 liters of water saved to the planet, 1,800 services and sales of $ 120,000,000 Colombian pesos.

Social and environmental benefit

It generates a positive impact on the use of natural resources. Auapp was born from the ecological concern that presented a conventional car wash that spends 80 to 120 liters of water compared to an Auapp wash that spends between 0.7 liters and 1.2 liters, thanks to professional process and the high products technology. The app has an information system that counts all the liters saved in alliances with organizations, for marketing campaigns, awareness and communication of the positive impact of the service.
