We are very excited to announce a new feature that will allow customers to book home improvement jobs with just a few taps on their phone.
This new service lets customers skip the drawn-out processes of searching for potential tradesmen, comparing quotes and haggling for a fair price just to book a minor home improvement job. Nobody wants to spend hours finding a plumber to fix a clogged sink!
Instant bookings are made possible by our network of 'Verified Pros', who are now available to book for more than 90 home improvement services, though this will increase to 450 soon. These include hanging a picture, installing new flooring and rewiring a light fixture. Since only Verified Pros can take on these jobs, customers are guaranteed a top quality trade professional for every project.
Larger and more expensive jobs, which tend to require more consideration, dialogue and planning, can still be booked in the traditional way.
This is not the first groundbreaking feature that we have introduced to the home service market. Late in 2016 we launched the ‘Plentific Guarantee’, an insurance policy which protects homeowners when hiring trade professionals.
This is a huge step forward for both homeowners and trade professionals, whereby hiring someone for a repair, maintenance or home improvement project is as easy as ordering food for delivery.
Plentific's Co-Founder Emre Kazan, who leads Product and Tech, said: “This is a huge step forward for both homeowners and trade professionals, whereby hiring someone for a repair, maintenance or home improvement project is as easy as ordering food for delivery.
It wasn’t that long ago that you had to go through page after page just to find the right tradesman for your home improvement work. Now, any jobs that you need doing can take just a couple of seconds to book.
It will give Pros an advantage as well. Tradesmen have to waste a huge amount of time looking for local leads, preparing quotes and chasing invoices to get paid, when they could be carrying out jobs and building their businesses. Once a Verified Pro accepts an Instant job, it’s theirs. All they have to do then is agree on a date with the customer, do a stellar job and see the payment go to their account without any delay.”
Plentific Instant is currently available in the Greater London area and will be rolled out nationwide later on in 2017. It will also be available via several Plentific partner websites, including Zoopla, PrimeLocation and HomeOwners Alliance, as well as a number of large consumer brands thanks to several partnerships which will be announced shortly.
