A new online marketplace, Naijaworkman.com is set to launch to improve the local services search experience in Nigeria. In Nigeria, access to the informal service economy and its tradesmen, artisans and service providers is greatly fragmented. Customers tend to locate such services by happenstance or word of mouth, an experience that can be greatly improved through technology.
Enter Naijaworkman.com, an online marketplace that aims to redefine the procurement of local services by creating a platform that brings together consumers and service providers. The platform offers a secure, comprehensive and transparent platform that connects consumers who need a local service performed to a qualified, pre-screened service provider who caters to their area. Service categories offered include plumbing, auto repair, electricians, home cleaning, hairdressers, photography and carpentry to name a few.
According to the company’s co-founders, Bassey O Bassey and Anthony Kuyoro, “Naijaworkman.com aims to solve the highly challenging and complex problem of local service search in underdeveloped markets and offer Nigerians a secure, convenient and hassle-free way to determine the best qualified service provider to fulfill their job requests. We will ensure consumers receive the best value in terms of quality and price every time as service providers compete for their business and will aggressively expand our breadth of services to encompass almost all types of local services over time.”
The company is currently accepting signups at www.naijaworkman.com.
