Lincoln, Nebraska (PRWEB) September 09, 2013
Seva Call (Save-A-Call) is launching in Lincoln to connect consumers to the right service professionals by phone. Seva Call is a free, algorithm-based, virtual concierge service that lets consumers compare top-rated, available businesses that work on the consumers’ schedule. A recent study showed that 78% of small businesses are content relying on “word of mouth” to get customers rather than invest where most consumers are search- online. That’s why it takes consumers about 30 minutes to search for help online. Seva Call, which is already helping customers in more than 40 other cities find and talk to the right service professionals in minutes, is now welcoming Lincoln to its network.
To quickly connect to available service professionals, Lincoln residents just visit http://www.sevacall.com and enter their location, availability and a description of the problem at hand. Seva Call’s algorithm filters through Lincoln’s over 500 businesses and selects the best matches based on proximity, availability, the job needed and even quality control measures like online consumer ratings and reviews, social media interactions and call analytics. The consumer is then connected with up to three pros in their area within minutes.
In over 50 service categories like roofing, painting and heating and cooling, Seva Call saves consumers time and energy while finding the skilled professionals who match their schedules, service their needs and answer their questions right away. All of this without compromising personal privacy, charging membership fees or interfering with the quality customer service small businesses are known to provide.
“Lincoln became the capital because most Nebraskans in the 1300's couldn’t reach leaders in the Omaha capital. So, connectedness is a major theme in Lincoln’s history and Seva Call is proud to make it a reality for Lincoln communities today,” explained founder Aman Bakshi.
Seva Call is also an effective tool for businesses that find traditional marketing and lead generation too costly and risky. With Seva Call, top-rated local businesses preview service request details for free by phone, text or email and are given the option to accept or reject the referral based on the details provided. This saves company time and money. Seva Call only charges a flat-rate when the business has a conversation with a consumer.
Rex Hayden of JDI Windows raved that, after signing up with Seva Call, his first referral turned into an $11,000 job. Since Seva Call does not take a percentage of any business’ revenue, Hayden only paid a low pre-negotiated rate for that highly profitable contract and potentially life-long professional relationship.
The Seva Call team will launch its iPhone and Android app in the near future. It will provide the same instant responsiveness to service needs far from home and help more busy Lincoln residents.
Seva Call raised $1.3 million in Series-A funding last fall and has launched in a plethora of cities across the United States including Omaha, Atlanta, Indianapolis, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, and Boston. Connect with Seva Call on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
