Harri Paloheimo, what is your solution for more sustainable everyday life?
You don’t have to own everything yourself. With the help of sharing service Liiteri, you can easily reserve things like tools or bikes through a web service, 24 hours a day. The container is secured with an electronic lock, so you can access it with a mobile service.
What did the programme give you?
The major business partners in the development programme had clearly identified their own needs and were ready to invest in start–up experiments. Therefore, it was easy to identify the right partner for the co-operation, and we found one in YIT. However, it was equally rewarding to get constructive feedback, development suggestions and contacts from other companies as well. Good timing is important in co-operation, so even if there is no common idea right away, it doesn’t mean that it can’t be found later.
Where did we succeed together?
Our co–operation with YIT worked very well. We were able to implement the service directly to the users. Last autumn, we were nominated for the best solution for estate management of 2018. After this recognition, the newest Liiteri container was opened in Vuosaari, Helsinki. Since then, we have been able to experiment with the application of the technology to local food pick-up points, for example.
Now that we have several successful experiments behind us, we will next focus on bigger projects. We are currently expanding our international networks, so we have interesting work ahead on customising the Liiteri service platform for other continents as well.
