Uber for Service Provider: Your Digital Butler
The digital age has brought its own musings. Who’d have thunk that we will be so dependent on technology for our every need? It began with being able to access information, but slowly with the help of online payments and banking made easy, ticketing and booking services and products became a breeze. What initially was restricted to big company orders for online shopping now came down to everyday items.
It is amusing to look back at an era like we see on “Downton Abbey” where they have an army of servants managing the estate. We all want to be pampered like that you know, where there is one butler who can rely on with any sort of problem. And he will contact the necessary branch and get the job done.
Before we had the technical advancement that we do today. It would’ve been impossible to think of ourselves having such facilities but now with the plethora of apps available to us, there’s hardly anything that we can’t achieve. If you can think of a need, then rest assured that there is an app for it. No matter whether it is a service or a product, you can get your solutions through one app or another.
But it’s still not a butler. Or is it?
Our fascination with a one stop shop will probably never cease to exist. We love being lazy and therefore having one place to dump all your issues seems fit. So, although one can get different apps for all kinds of services we still appreciate an Uber for service provider kind of application. This TaskRabbit clone app is essentially a central app. That can allow you to handle any kind of home related service.
Regardless of whether you want a carpenter or a plumber, whether you need the services of a beautician at home or you need a maid for the day, this is an app that will get you by. The advantage of having such an app (apart from the obvious comfort that it gives you) is that it doesn’t unnecessarily clutter your phone’s memory with too much spread across everywhere.

Once the job is done, an invoice is generated and the payment deducts through payment option the client selects from cash, card. Finally, the on demand service app provider can give a rating to the client. And the client too can write a review about his experience with the service provider.

So, the app owner can present a percentage of a commission which he will receive. If there is any payment made by the user at any point on the application. Regardless of whether he books a painter or an electrician or if the books the same electrician over and over again. The app owner will receive the pre-decided amount.
