Are you looking for any service, yes any service be it job contract, plumbing, mechanic, gardening, lawyer or even a doctor?

Hansole, a local technology company behind the popular Lost and found has bounced back on the market with Click a Service, a virtual platform that enables people to get services from reputable and professional individuals and the website is now live for testing.
According to one of the directors, Mr Andrew Maturure, “Click A Service is a platform to find honest,verified and dependable service providers at the click of a button.The platform is designed in such a way that you get the nearest service provider possible depending on where you are.(municipal districts)”.
The team is trying to stand out and be different by making sure that they create a high quality platform of honest and professional service providers to safe guard and provide the best service to the general public, by making sure all service providers(SP’s) are verified by means of three references traceable,Id numbers and contact numbers.

Andrew also hinted that for those who get a thumbs down twice for poor service, they will be automatically removed from their database, this is quiet a strong statement from the startup to create quality.
They will not be charging anyone to get a service on their platform, but they hinted they will later on charge service providers not more than a dollar per month to register on their platform which makes it a viable business concept
This idea Concept is being driven by Mr Andrew Maturure and JK Mutisi through their Developerss on Software Lounge
The platform may be a big bang and a hit in Zimbabwe if service providers register in masses to be able to cater for millions who are looking for their services but this is not going to be a walk in the park.
The people they are targeting are the same people who are self employed and looking for a dollar daily and moving them to market online in Zimbabwe will be demanding.
