Timely launch of mycarM8 – Digital Garage

Timely launch of mycarM8 – Digital Garage

Thursday, 6 December 2012,
Press Release: mCommerce Ltd

Cloud - Web - Mobile APP start up mCommerce Ltd, says the launch of the mycarM8 system couldn’t have been timed any better.

mCommerce Ltd CEO, Gregg Nelson, says there is a lot happening in New Zealand's motoring landscape currently. These changes affect a vast range of motoring stakeholders.

Number 1 of those is the VLR (Vehicle Licensing Reform)

Government is worried about saving consumers time and money without compromising road safety.

MTA are worried, the aggressive "Hands off the WoF" campaign is evidence of that.

Consumers should be worried, currently in Auckland alone, 3 million dollars a month is dished out in Parking Infringements, most for cars displaying expired WoF or Rego where car owners were not even aware.

As soon as Government officially announce their intentions we will begin marketing our domain www.WoF.co.nz to leverage the heightened awareness of these changes and direct that traffic to mycarM8 – Digital Garage.

Government recently started charging Kiwis for their own vehicle information however our FREEMIUM business model ensures Kiwi car owners have FREE access to their vehicle information with this data populating their Digital Garage.

The whole concept of a Digital Garage for your cars is new and is the start of some really exciting things to come. Our team is busy revolutionising the way Kiwis do everyday stuff with cars. We’ve turned static vehicle reporting into a dynamic management tool for car owners that offers convenience, time and money savings.

Right now we’re building a motor vehicle rich audience with a known profile who have opted in, ultimately this niche audience becomes attractive to marketers of automotive related products and services, that being our revenue model.

Less than 3 weeks after launch, mycarM8 was featured in idealog as “APP of the week”. This sort of endorsement is very humbling.


About mycarM8

mycarM8 is a FREE Cloud hosted Digital Garage for your cars - bike - trailers etc (in fact any registered vehicle you own).

Simply register your mobile number and number plate and our system displays your up to date vehicle information (not cached) in your Digital Garage, which you can access anytime, anywhere from any Internet connected device.

mycarM8 automagically captures your WoF and Rego expiry dates and sets a FREE TxT alert 2 weeks prior to your expiry date (which you can customise to suit you).

On your WoF expiry date, our system seamlessly checks your car has had its WoF updated and refreshes the vehicle information in your Digital Garage and resets your TxT alert based on your last preference. Set once and never forget.

The FREE TxT alerts link to a list of service providers in your proximity that relate contextually to the event notification. WoF reminder = WoF service provider, not a viagra ad. This differs significantly from the reminder you may be getting currently from say VTNZ as that reminder only promotes them, not the garage down the road who could be offering you a deal or saving to engage their business.

mycarM8 also alerts you via FREE TxT alert to your driver license expiry date and service reminders by date or distance traveled.
