Wikibox is reported to have begun a plan to enter the US market based on 'o2Obox' as a company participating in the "G-START E Global Entry" operation at Bucheon Cluster Operation Center operated by Gyeonggi Provincial Promotion Agency.
Wikibox is a company that researches and develops IoT technology and products, and focuses on 'o2Obox' (www.o2obox.kr), an unmanned storage box. It is not just an unattended service like a commonly known storage box, but it will show various o2o services based on the archive and will be useful for users in general as a future-oriented product. Especially, it is a perfect service for customers who want to use their time efficiently because of their social life.
The o2o service can be applied to all convenience services such as laundry, supermarket, market, and direct sale of crops. It is a system in which users can easily order services needed for their lives by using smart phones, and deliver the ordered goods conveniently. It does not have to press the password like the existing storage box, which makes it much easier. In addition, it is possible to manage the delivery history of the courier service.
Jeong Eui-shin, CEO of Wikibox, said, "We will focus on enhancing consumer convenience by combining with various services in the future. This year, we plan to establish a service alliance with the convenience store, manufacturing and delivery companies. We want to be the # 1 provider of storage-based o2o services by installing storage in 1,000 locations."
On the other hand, Wikibox is planning to enter the US and install o2oBox in the inner city supermarket. The consumer can enjoy the time saving effect and the simplicity without paying the extra cost. Wikibox said it was aimed to become a global company by providing services to 10 countries including the United States.
