SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TaskRabbit, the horizontal services platform, today announced the next evolution of their on-demand platform -- chores done now. Consumers will be able to access the company’s new mobile on-demand experience, allowing Taskers and Clients to connect and complete a variety of tasks in real-time.
“We’re moving from on-demand to real-time. This next evolution of the TaskRabbit business makes us the only platform that delivers against getting everyday chores done immediately,” said John Vars, Chief Product Officer at TaskRabbit. “We’re removing the friction and inefficiency of finding help, scheduling a mutually workable time, and having to wait to get something fixed, cleaned or delivered.”
TaskRabbit’s real-time services offering comes on the heels of the company’s exponential growth in the last year -- quadrupling the business from 2014. In 2015, TaskRabbit’s mobile usage tripled YoY and they saw over 50% of their tasks posted, accepted, started, and completed in under 90 minutes. Their new mobile app shifts the business from same-day to right now.
“The growth we’ve generated in the last year is an exciting milestone that continues TaskRabbit’s leadership in defining and reinventing the future of work,” said Leah Busque, CEO and Founder of TaskRabbit. “We’re thrilled to apply this momentum to our new mobile app, continuing to empower consumers to be their most productive selves everyday, while providing more work opportunities for Taskers.”
TaskRabbit’s real-time capabilities are based on their proprietary algorithm that tracks activity -- availability, response time, time of day, day of week and distance. The company’s current offering allows Clients to post a task and get it confirmed same day and completed in the near future, typically 1-3 days. Features of the new experience include:
- Instant Matching - Get matched with a Tasker in under 5 minutes.
- Estimated Arrival Times - Know what time your Tasker will arrive via an algorithm that combines historical data and real-time data.
- Real-Time Completion - Delivery, Cleaning, Moving, and Handyman Work done in 90 minutes.
The new mobile app benefits both sides of TaskRabbit’s marketplace. For Taskers, it gives them increased exposure to Clients and demand in their category; and for Clients, it provides an immediate and real-time experience to get their chores done now.
Now in 19 cities including London, TaskRabbit is empowering people to be their most productive by providing work opportunities around daily chores. They are fundamentally changing the face of work by aligning their Tasker base with consumer’s daily and immediate needs across multiple categories.
