The Problem and the big issue

We all rely on Amazon or Ebay type platforms to look for our favourite products. However, we struggle to find a platform where all our important service needs are fulfilled. We all have that daunting experience of not finding the services that we really need at the right place, in the right time and for the right price. Today, a person spends at least 2-3 days for a service search, negotiate price and make a purchase. Safety and quality of service provider is another issue that we have to deal with at every step of our service search and delivery.

Personal and surrounding experience of this problem

Being an Argentinian/Italian I travel a lot, and for that I need different services like foreign exchange, pet care, car hire, hospitality, laundry etc. Also, as a professional who has worked in different companies, I have seen the struggle of fulfilling the immediate needs of services like design, financial, accounting, legal, marketing, office space or finding a right candidate for a position. This is the same for any person like me, who is trying to establish a start-up with limited resources and budget, but need different services at an affordable price. Similarly, many small service providers in London are finding it hard to generate leads and grow.

The general tendency of the cost and information conscious businesses and customers is to search for different types of service providers for their specific need, inquire and speak to all possible service sellers, compare prices and finally make an informed and a mindful purchase. And for the service providers, to have a single platform from where they can have a pipeline of opportunities and sales. 

Solution

''ServBetter is the perfect solution for that''....

ServBetter is a secure platform that connects service buyers with service providers all across the globe in 12 different categories and in more than 100 subcategories/services. It is a service based platform that has skilful and talented people who can be outsourced or contacted at the time of need. The platform provides ease for the buyers to find a list of ID and quality vetted service providers at the required time and in the specified price. Now you don’t have to waste your time running around the market to find the people for service based tasks. Instead, a quick short post on ServBetter can result in several quotes and you can decide the best option.

A SIMPLE PROCESS:

Our Mission

ServBetter’s mission is to help people getting connected. From people who are willing to pay for services and get help in their day to day short term tasks, to complicated or highly skilled projects. For those who need to earn some extra money in their free time and for  corporate business service providers. ServBetter also wants to help local service providers in getting paid for the work they love to do. If you are good at cleaning the garden, you can get paid for this task. Similarly, a person who loves to develop codes and apps can get a chance to do something out of the box and get paid and appreciated. 

The regular work routine does confine people in limitations, where passion of doing something that you love remains unfulfilled. ServBetter is for every person who loves to follow passion and want to do what they like to do. We welcome all types of freelancers, contractors and business sellers.

                    

Whether the job is big or small, everyday tasks to unique customized tasks, you can now have people for any type of tasks. ServBetter is pioneer in providing services from so many varied vertices of businesses. Starting from simple home based tasks to complicated IT based software services. From getting an office space to searching a highly skilled pet trainer. ServBetter has service providers from all walks of life. We have a huge list of services such as plumbing, carpentry, painting, installation, cleaner, pet sitter, office mover, hair stylist, massage therapy, MOT, hall hire, caterer, decorator and what not.

                                 

ServBetter registers quality checked vetted sellers so that the transaction is smooth and secure for buyers. We secure the payment amount in escrow type system and funds are released to the sellers when the task is done, and the buyer is satisfied with the job well done. We also have wallet functionality for instant cash back. 

Once you post the task on ServBetter, you will start receiving bids from sellers and you can select the one which is most suitable after having a chat in our inbuilt chat system. ServBetter promotes open communication between sellers and buyers and maintains transparency in price. The feedback and reviews of the sellers give a good understanding of the seller’s abilities and are extremely helpful in making a good decision.

We have increased our business categories from 6 to 8 and to 11 presently, depending on the demands from the market/users. We are working to implement the ''Doctor and Dentist'' module, where people will be able to book GP/dentist with a tap and do their virtual or face to face consultation along with booking medical tests. 

We have registered more than 270 service providers in the timeframe of 2-3 months and its rapidly scaling. Very soon (from March2020) we will start to onboard service buyers.

We have developed Machine learning and A.I based behavioral engine that will continuously monitor the users choice and preference and recommend services depending on their core needs.
