We want to help empower local cleaning companies to stay in the game and protect their market share from outside VC-backed startups trying to enter the cleaning industry.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) March 14, 2013
A new iPhone app developed by Serviceful, LLC allows users to find a local maid and cleaning service available for same-day service—a difficult task, since homeowners currently have to call each company to find out who’s available, according to Serviceful’s co-founder Juan Chaparro.
Using the new MaidsRadar app, maid services nationwide are also able to schedule more customers and utilize house cleaning staff and resources more efficiently. The benefits for businesses and their clients can be substantial, he adds.
“Our easy and affordable B2B software allows any maid service business owner, even with no technical skills, to have their cleaning business available for mobile on-demand booking in less than three minutes. Traditional maid business owners don’t have the time or knowledge to build their own technology, so we’ve jumped in to help them get into the mobile booking market.”
“On-demand house cleaning means extra profits for those utilizing the system,” says Chaparro, the owner of a thriving Texas maid service. “It also means that busy homeowners will have more options and better quality service. Unassigned blocks of time in the daily schedule of a maid service mean less revenue. They also mean fewer chances to accommodate the needs of new or existing clients. We want to help empower local cleaning companies to stay in the game and protect their market share from outside VC-backed startups trying to enter the cleaning industry.”
The idea of creating a dedicated app empowering consumers to find a maid service around them available for service on the same business day, and allowing maid services to better fill empty schedule blocks, came to him as he watched trends develop within the market, Chaparro notes.
“Using mobile technology to help both buyers and sellers of maid services schedule more efficiently maximizes revenues for house cleaning firms—while at the same time providing consumers with more choices and real-time availability of local companies,” he says.
Downloading the app provides each with a user interface that’s easy to use on either iPhone devices or a computer. Consumers use the iPhone app while maid services manage their availability on the cloud. Both are currently free of charge, according to the website.
