A “disruptor” is a company that goes against the grain in order to evolve an industry. Our online real estate transaction platform, Reozom, is considered a disruptive company because we shake things up when it comes to the norm in real estate.
By leveraging technology, we are able to save homeowners thousands of dollars in their real estate transaction by eliminating expensive agent commission fees.
Here are other companies that may not realize were once disruptors:
Amazon completely changed the game when it came to online shopping. By offering unbeatable prices, people began browsing on Amazon to buy pretty much anything.
Amazon also upped the ante when it came to one-day shipping or even day-of shipping. Now we even use Amazon to binge watch our favorite shows or arrange for every day household items to arrive right on our porches.
Our guess is that you’re probably reading this on your iPhone, so all you have to do is take a look at what you’re holding to realize why Apple was a disruptor.
Apple’s release of the iPod back in 2001 was a total revelation for the tech world. Think about it, this was back then people were still walking around with portable CD players. Now, we are able to manage our entire lives right from the palm of our hand.
Can you imagine a world where you couldn’t binge watch Walking Dead for hours into the night? Us either. Sorry, Blockbuster.
I think we can all agree that the on-demand streaming of movies and shows that Netflix brought directly to our televisions was either the best thing that ever happened to us (or the very reason for our own demise).
Ikea isn’t such an obvious one, but it absolutely was a disruptor. Ikea gave us the ability to buy cheap furniture and instantly furnish an entire house, if we so desired.
Although, let’s be real, Ikea could still help out by making the dressers just a little bit easier to build.
Two guys that knew nothing about the taxi industry completely transformed the taxi industry after rolling out Uber. Now, even people who live in the suburbs have the luxury of hitching a ride to a concert or the bar.
Not to mention, documenting an Uber ride on Snapchat now provides all of us with some high quality Friday night entertainment.
All of these companies have become a major part of our lifestyles.
If you love and use these companies, we can guarantee that you will love Reozom.
