Our linear economy has promoted product ownership. We are used to buying and owning products we want in our lives. As a result the things we own are idle, and not utilized well enough.
The future of commerce is based on stronger relationships and recurring orders from your customers. With subscriptions and on-demand models, consumption models can be influenced to a more sustainable pattern.
We believe that brands and producers of products should develop direct-to-customer strategies. Combined with rental and lease models, companies will retain ownership of their products. This gives them the benefit to maximize Asset Lifetime Value.
Our billing engine enables flexible recurring payment models, and allows you to combine bring in one-time payments. Our billing logic allows for unique service propositions where product rentals and recurring deliveries are combined.
The logic for billing, stock and logistics in Firmhouse is designed with assets in mind. In circular business models, products are not sold in the traditional way. It's comparable to a traditional rental business, where keeping track of assets is one of the most important activities.
