Aon partners with sharing economy offering

A new marketplace enabling individuals and companies to rent their idle assets — from household items to heavy industrial equipment — to others to generate income set for an Aussie launch in partnership with Aon Risk Solutions.

Collaborate Corporation, Australia’s only ASX-listed operator of peer-to-peer marketplaces, today announced it will launch mobilise.com in 2017. Aon Risk Solutions, a subsidiary of Aon Plc will market Mobilise to its wide base of clients providing them with an effective platform to monetise idle assets and also gain temporary access to assets to grow their businesses.

“Rather than buying new assets, Mobilise is unlocking the power of the sharing economy by allowing renters to access items at an affordable price on an as-needed basis. Simultaneously, we’re giving asset owners the opportunity to make money from their assets, which would otherwise be sitting idle and depreciating in value”  said Chris Noone, CEO of Collaborate Corporation.

“We are privileged to be working with a company of the stature of Aon to enable asset owners and renters to take advantage of the enormous potential of under-utilised assets, through the launch of Mobilise” he added.

Lambros Lambrou, Chief Executive Officer of Aon Risk Solutions Australia said “Through Mobilise and together with our clients, we are embracing the opportunities the sharing economy has to offer, providing us with a competitive edge in the marketplace.”
