People organising or planning for a party, event or something often face a problem while finding a service provider; be it a caterer, a DJ or any other service for that matter. To find one perfect service provider who aligns well with the needs is really a tiresome task. One has to go through a hundred calls to finalise all the vendors.
Research shows that more than 1200 Cr. searches are being done on daily basis by the people looking for service providers and over 6 Lakh service providers are being contacted daily. Companies like JustDial, Sulekha are among the ones which have tried their best to bring all of them under one platform, but, however, the problem still remains. Adding on, while reaching out for the service providers, the person has to share contact details and later he/she is spammed with unwanted calls for a number of days.
After looking at this and facing some similar problems, Rachit Mathur, a Graduate from York university who has been internet entrepreneur for almost 8 years and Snehil Khanor, who has previously consulted startups TrulyMadly, Printland.in, among others, launched FindYahan.com.
“We like to take away all the hassle out of the process of hiring a best service provider. We just ask you to fill out a small requirement form and then our expert & verified service providers send you a quote and then you can compare their quotes, prices, verification level, review ratings and you can also see if they are connected to any of your friend on social media. We help user to take an informed decision without harassing him with hundreds of calls,” tells Snehil.
This Delhi based startup has recently grabbed angel funding led by Karan Bajwa (MD, Microsoft India) along with Parvesh Bareja (Director, HeliosPacks), Sunjay Kapur (MD, Sona Koyo Steering), and Amanpreet Bajaj (Ex Cofounder, Letsbuy.com) also participating in the round.
