This PR-based Startup's Smart Way to Solve The "Must Speak English" Barrier of Non-english Workers & Immigrant Refugees In Accessing on-demand Jobs Locally

Share Article

One of the key barriers for local-based workers to date is language. In every part of the world, it is a divisive factor that excludes talented folks from being considered to be hired simply because they can’t speak the same language as the people hiring for the jobs. One of the main highlights of the Hallo Helper tech showcase is its dual-sided platform’s SmartChat messaging system. An in-app feature that allows app users to communicate in their native language with other users who speak a different language. Enabling a seamless conversation that cuts through the copying and pasting of messages to translate it.

Hallo Helper, one of the Startups to showcase and pitch at this year’s Web Summit in Lisbon, Portugal, will take to the stage on November 2nd to showcase their app technology democratizing on-demand work opportunities. Based in San Juan, Puerto Rico, the app-based startup will be the U.S. commonwealth’s representation to showcase its innovation and technology ecosystem.

One of the key barriers for local-based workers to date is language. In every part of the world, it is a divisive factor that excludes talented folks from being considered to be hired simply because they can’t speak the same language as the people hiring for the jobs. One of the main highlights of the Hallo Helper tech showcase is its dual-sided platform’s SmartChat messaging system. An in-app feature that allows app users to communicate in their native language with other users who speak a different language. Enabling a seamless conversation that cuts through the copying and pasting of messages to translate it. Translation is not a new product, as many apps already utilize translation technology. However, the genius lies in the startup’s use of it— applying it to connect on-demand workers to on-demand consumers. Making it possible for Non-english speakers in every local community globally to be booked for services or task assistance as customers want it, on-demand.

How the feature works is quite simple, it simply revamps the user experience for both the customer and service provider, sans whatever language they speak. When a customer is looking for an on-demand service, the app shows them options based on their search location. These are all top-rated and vetted experts for the service, but might not necessarily speak the same language as the customer. Using SmartChat, customers can send chat messages in their own language, receive messages in a different language, and simply tap on the SmartChat translate button underneath the message to translate it. The same tech applies to the service expert or gig worker.

“The level of talent or expertise a person has is not based on how well they can speak English.” says Jan Reese Rondina, CEO and Co-Founder of Hallo Helper. “We created SmartChat to allow our users to be able to have more options, surpassing language barrier limitations.”

Launched in 2021, this peer-to-peer marketplace has proven to stay true to their mission of equalizing access to opportunities in the On-demand Gig Economy. By removing limitations set by other platform’s on what the on-demand gig work can be, Hallo Helper has achieved to give more service options to the post-pandemic on-demand consumer. Now, with SmartChat, users will be able to have even more options. Effectively connecting different types of communities to carve out new opportunities in the On-demand Economy. Hallo Helper will showcase under the theme “Future of Work” at Web Summit. Additionally, their 40-word pitch video is one of the selected featured videos that will be playing throughout the Web Summit. According to the company's founders, Web Summit will also showcase their presence in Lisbon, Portugal to show attendees the platform's social media app-like expandability to every multi-lingual community, globally.
