Oneflare has launched a new app known as Oneflare for Business that promises to make getting work take less than a minute for trade and service experts.
The online marketplace said in a statement that the new app, which is available on both iOS and Android, will instantly alert the over 80,000 registered businesses to relevant nearby jobs and allow them to quote instantly in as little as 30 seconds.
What does this mean for trade and service experts?
With over 45,000 jobs posted on Oneflare each month, the app will assist trade and service experts in over 150 categories including concreting, tiling, gardening, removals, plumbing, gas fitting, general cleaning, personal training, dog grooming and more, connect with the right customers.
Oneflare Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, Adam Dong, said the easy to use app has been launched to streamline the lead generation process and simplify the quoting process for our business customers.
“For entrepreneurs and small business owners, time is a precious commodity. They’re always busy, often on the move and constantly connected.
“The Oneflare for Business app has therefore been designed to support our experts’ needs and ensure they are able to quickly connect with customers anytime, anywhere, with ease,” he remarked.
Oneflare is still on a hot streak
“The app will fast track jobs for our users and also coincides with our launch of an industry-first Facebook Messenger bot that allows customers to request quotes via the social media platform. Both developments speak to our commitment to connect the right jobs with the right experts, nationwide,” Adam went on to say.
Prior to the launch of this app, Oneflare was one of the first to introduce the Facebook Messenger bot to its platform.
Adam said the move will make hiring trade and service experts as simple as possible and ensure that the customers connect with the right expert for their job.
He further stated that it couldn’t be more convenient since it would bring the Oneflare service closer to a platform that the customers already use.
Earlier this year Oneflare secured a $15 million investment from Fairfax Media’s Domain Group and clearly the start-up has been putting that capital injection to serious work.
