Ujuzy, a web and mobile App platform that bridges the gap between service providers and homeowners and companies has officially bean launched in Nairobi, Kenya. The platform has listed more than 2,000 professionals in plumbing, hairdressing, carpentry, building, construction, tailoring, satellite installation and servicing, tiling and painting, among other sectors.
Ujuzi will allow users to connect with a service provider to render any kind of service in most Nairobi City estates at the tap of a button.
“We are taking away the burden of searching for experienced and reliable professional service providers in a hassle-free model to deliver critical services to companies and homes,” said Ujuzy Managing Director, Mr. Kimani Gitau
This platform will contain a list of peer rated professionals and aims to deliver quality services at affordable prices.
Service providers using Ujuzy can offer their services either as individual experts or as a company and target their ideal client.
The system uses a peer-rating system that enables clients to give feedback on services rendered and therefore rank service providers based on the quality of work. The rating systems controls the level of exposure for providers and their services on the Ujuzy website and mobile App.
“If you impress your customers, we guarantee you more exposure in the market. Positive ratings will mean that you are ranked higher and able to get more business. This is how we are building this rich pool of reliable professionals,” said Gitau.
Over the next 12 months, Ujuzy plans to broaden its reach to include professionals in several of Kenya’s cities and towns including Mombasa, Kisumu, Nakuru, and Eldoret.
The Ujuzy App is available for download on the Google App Store. Starting in Quarter Two of 2019, Ujuzy will also be available in the Apple App store. Alternatively, users may access Ujuzy from their desktop or laptop computers at ujuzy.com.
