Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) December 12, 2014
The digital concierge TalkLocal (http://www.talklocal.com) is launching in Scottsdale, Arizona and is ready to help the town by connecting consumers to the service professionals that its residents need.
“There’s plenty of great things to say about Scottsdale, a city that’s already been rated the best in...a lot. Best city to retire, best city to raise children and just one of the safest cities in America, it’s difficult not to be excited about this place,” said TalkLocal founder Manpreet Singh.
Scottsdale has also received recognition for its businesses as it was honored with Google’s 2013 eCity Award- an award given to the cities in each state with the strongest online business community. TalkLocal is excited to arrive in this city and help its businesses thrive even more.
TalkLocal started when Gurpreet Singh, the owner of a small computer repair shop, realized something. Though the business received many calls, there were still concerns with his consumer base. Some consumers he wasn’t able to service because of conflicts in schedules or location and many of the ones he was able to help hadn’t known about his shop until they had called several other companies first. So, he created a way to match consumers to businesses in 90 seconds, which is at least 50 times faster than other local services marketplaces.
Now, instead of consumers having to call business after business, all a person has to do is enter their location, availability and the details of the job at http://www.talklocal.com. Then they simply have to sit back and enjoy some delicious chili as TalkLocal’s specially made algorithm does all the work of filtering through the city’s thousands of businesses to find the three best matches based on the proximity, online consumer ratings/reviews and so much more. Then in 90 seconds, all the consumer has to do is pick up the phone when it rings and talk to the business on the other line to finalize the details.
In over 50 service categories like roofing, (don’t want that sun shining through a hole in your roof), accountants (as tax season is almost here) and heating & cooling (so you never worry if that AC goes out), TalkLocal takes the hassle out of finding the right local professionals. And, consumer contact info is not shared, sold, or visible on phone records or caller IDs. TalkLocal conversations occur over a secure line to protect consumer privacy.
TalkLocal is proud to announce it’s raised $4 million in venture funding, has served in 49 states and recently marked its one millionth service request call. Scottsdale residents can find TalkLocal on Facebook and Twitter or by visiting our website.
