Construction Equipment Online P2P Marketplace

Industry eCommerce

Client Sharemac GmbH

Project Duration 14 Months

Sharemac is an innovative startup on the mission to digitalize the construction industry. Sharemac Platform is a unique, professional online platform, where construction companies and private users can exchange equipment through lending and renting.

The platform’s main strength is its transparency and efficiency when lending or renting the equipment. It’s the only platform on the market that shows the exact machine lender will receive, with the final price and the exact location – all before the rental booking is made.

The constant support from the German Construction Associations allowed Sharemac to introduce and integrate its platform to a number of industry leaders across Europe.

The Challange

Sharemac was an early-stage startup when it approached Omedia. Our challenge was to create an MVP for a complex P2P lending and renting platform, consult the client, and come up with the right technical solutions for the ever-changing requirements, all within the tight deadlines.

We came up with the system of microservices, handling the entire process of the platform — from user registration and verification to equipment database management, renting, payments, and delivery tracking. The solution consists of multiple applications working in sync. The platform core runs on a heavily customized headless Drupal instance, providing back-end for a custom Angular front-end application.

Features Delivered

  • An Airbnb-style platform for heavy machinery renting and lending.
  • Centralized equipment database, with rich metadata of machinery technical specifications and its management system.
  • The system for managing equipment insurance, transportation, and tracking flows.
  • Rent payment management and automatic payment sharing system between renter, lender, and the platform.

Client's Feedback

We worked with Omedia for quite extensive period of time and on many different technical challenges and projects. I can honestly say that they are a very skillful and reliable company and can build infrastructures and products at the highest industry standards. Their additional agility and flexible way of thinking made the whole process quite enjoyable for both parties and I can only recommend them if you are looking for a reliable software development partner.
