The gig economy, or sharing economy, is estimated to grow rapidly to $335 billion by 2025.
New tech startup founded by Ram Agrawal and Ruchika Nain, AtoZgigs, has recently announced its debut in the industry of Arizona's gig economy, focusing on finding service job employment for users and locals looking for extra income.
“In 2008, Airbnb came and allowed for home sharing. They disrupted the entire hotel industry and enabled a new way of customer-to-customer interaction. Similarly, we want to completely change how a service job gets done,” said Nain. “We want to enable a customer-to-customer interaction in the gig market where anyone can request help from their neighbors. This is an easy and affordable approach, and also creates a sense of community.”
The mobile app is extremely simple and easy to use. A customer, or “Gig Giver” that may need help with cleaning, moving, or assembly, posts the gig at his or her preferred price and schedule. Then, the gig becomes visible to all other users in the area.
“A unique feature of our app’s user interface is a map view of all the active gigs in the market,” said Agrawal. Anyone can then submit a bid and take any job, becoming the “Gig Taker.” AtoZgigs performs background checks on all “Gig Takers”, which ensures a safe community for service gig sharing. Furthermore, payment services, ratings, and messaging are all integrated into the app itself for ease of use.
The platform was created to face the standard obstacles in finding solutions for service work, and for tasks that don’t require a licensed professional or contractor, nobody should worry about overpaying and wasting time getting estimates.
