What do you do when you need to plan a wedding, look for a guitar teacher, or find a tax consultant?
Well, you can either call your friends, ask Google when that fails, speak to 15 different people, and end up hiring no one. Or you can just get your phone out, take a minute to fill in your requirements on UrbanClap, and get connected to verified professionals in the time it takes you to clap your hands!
UrbanClap was founded in October 2014 by Varun Khaitan, Abhiraj Bhal, and Raghav Chandra. All lived in the U.S. for several years: Khaitan was an engineer at Qualcomm before becoming a consultant at the Boston Consulting Group, where Bhal also worked, while Chandra was an engineer at Twitter.
After returning to India, the three wanted to launch a startup that would solve a really big consumer problem in India by leveraging mobile technology. They honed in on local services.
They realised how fragmented the local services industry in the country really was and how difficult it could be to find and hire the right service professional and UrbanClap was born.
At UrbanClap, we aim to make life simpler for people by connecting them to the right service professional, in a matter of hours and without a single call.
We’ve developed a proprietary matchmaking engine to match customers with the best and most relevant service providers in their locality. Customers receive responses in a few hours, while service providers enjoy the benefit of more business and higher conversion rates because they only get relevant leads.
To use the UrbanClap App, a customer first selects a category and then answers several questions on its Android app or website. Our recommendation engine uses the information from the questionnaire and location-based data to match him or her with service providers.
Whether it’s a home cleaning service that people are looking for, a yoga teacher, or a wedding photographer, they can find all of these services on our app. All you have to do is download the app, key in your location, fill out a short questionnaire about your requirements, and you’ll receive responses from the relevant professionals in a matter of hours!
More than 10,000 of professionals are using UrbanClap app to manage and expand their business. Download the app now
