Local Services Aggregation Startups In India – Going Beyond JustDial

Local Services Aggregation Startups In India – Going Beyond JustDial

Local service aggregators are growing in India. The services catered by these startups are highly fragmented, have low ticket size and low frequency of usage. Individually these services may not be big enough to justify making a Internet business around it, unlike Cars or Restaurants, but collectively this makes for a sticky use case. Until now consumers in this segment were completely dependent on referrals and with very few choices.

Here’s the list of startups aggregating local services:

The challenge here is not in connecting the consumer and service provider but making sure that the transaction is smooth. Review/Ratings is needed but the logistics/workflow is equally important.
