UBERIZATION means "offering direct services via a mobile app." The term UBERIZATION refers to the business practice of offering services directly to customers via mobile technology (typically a smartphone app).

The term UBERIZATION stems from the American company Uber Technologies Inc. (or Uber), which operates the Uber mobile app. The Uber app allows individuals to summon a taxi by submitting a trip request, which the app automatically sends to the nearest Uber taxi driver. The app automatically calculates the fare and pays the driver. A number of companies have since tried to replicate this efficiency, and this trend is known as UBERIZATION or "Uberification."
