Platform that Facilitates Home Services Management

Currently, there exist numerous solutions that help people easily find home service specialists of any skill, from electricians, gardeners to plumbers, or even roofers. But the market lacks management tools that allow these specialists to manage their business appropriately so that can improve the quality of their services. So, there is a need for the digitalization of this business niche. We’ve been working on the platform that appeared to make home service easy for everyone.

The client from Canada reached out to the Requestum with the query to create an MVP of a home service management platform. We needed to come up with handy functionality while it had to be really easy to navigate. Also, we had to come up with the most basic functionality that will start bringing value from the first day of using the app. We needed to be guided by MVP principles and not overcomplicate the product with a big number of features.

Quotes

Preparing proposals is another time-consuming task for home service providers. Usually, it was handled somewhere in excel so it wasn’t convenient to use on mobile devices, that’s why specialists had to write down everything on paper and only later when in the office - prepare the quote. That's why we created easy-to-use functionality that can be easily handled right on-site.

Invoice

A convenient tracking interface for invoices, it facilitates invoicing for home service providers, saving hours of billing work every week.

Timesheets

Payments to employees are also a frequent issue that home service providers face. The module allows management and control of the timesheets of all specialists to keep the job on track and profitable.

Document management

Document flow is an integral part of the interaction of specialists with their clients, from photos from the field to blueprints. The user has to send dozens of different materials each day and it requires appropriate management.
