Clickafix, a tech-centered marketplace for hiring the services of skilled workers, has debuted its services in Lagos with the aim to transform artisans into entrepreneurs.
The tech-driven platform is seeking to bridge the gap between skilled professionals and service seekers who are unaware of the best place to get the right service providers to carry out repairs in their homes and offices.
With Lagos as an entry point for the platform, Nigerians living in the commercial city can make use of Clickafix to meet home service needs and have repair works sorted promptly.
Clickafix is out to make life easier for customers. It will also create more opportunities for artisans to boost their trade and transform them into successful entrepreneurs. With the app, they will get the best value for their services.
HOW CLICKAFIX OPERATES
Users are required to download the Clickafix app on Google Playstore or Apple’s App Store in order to get started.
Once this is done, the user gets a prompt to provide a working phone number and set locations to access the services of onboarded handymen. As soon as a customer downloads the app on a phone, the customer has charge of all app activity.
Customers only need to enter their phone number, choose the service required, select a preferred professional, select the time they would like the service delivered, and make payment as agreed with the service providers, all within the app.
The app currently has about 500 skilled professionals to help with the home repair, installation, and maintenance needs of users.
Clickafix is backed by Paystack for seamless payments to professionals while ensuring service seekers get value.
Mr. Pawan Bhandari, co-founder, and director of the company spoke about the benefit of the app to artisans, saying the app makes life easier for customers whilst it also enables artisans with more opportunities to render their services to huge numbers of customers they may not have met.
Bhandari said Clickafix as a marketplace is a technology-enabled platform that rides on choice and convenience. To build trust, he said: “We have partnered with top quality training institutes and have thoroughly verified every single service provider such that service rendered via the app is fully secured and until the customer is completely satisfied, the service is not concluded.”
