Modern companies such as Zipcar are focusing on customers who need simple, individualized solutions for their temporary transportation needs. They want cost flexibility and a variety of cars for different occasions. There are many potential advantages to both the customer and the supplier when the transaction is based more on subscriptions than on one-time purchases. Modern companies such as  Zipcar want to have a lot of members since that will guarantee them predictable revenue streams. Zipcar subscribers also want to  be able to easily find the cars they hire. They can do so with Google maps, which displays all the locations of Zipcar pick-ups and drop-offs. This convenience makes Google maps the perfect distribution channel for Zipcar offers.  When a customer uses the car, he /she can employ Google maps for navigation and to discover where  the car can be returned once it is no longer needed.
