How TaskRabbit works?

It is an online marketplace that connects freelance service providers with local demand, allowing users to find help with everyday small tasks, including cleaning, moving, delivery and other work.

Modules in a Home service application

An application like TaskRabbit is divided into two major parts. One is for Users and one is for Service Providers.

  • Users are the one who generates the demand for service by posting a job on the app.
  • The service providers are the people who satisfy the demand. The service providers can be freelancers or businesses that are serving the demand for different services generated by the users on the app.

Features of an On-Demand Home Services app

Service app

Filtering of service providers:

Users should be able to find services without difficulty. Therefore, Providing filters will ease out the process of finding the right service provider based on the user’s choice

Push notification:

Real-time notifications play an important role. So, the users should be able to see whether the service provider has approved their request. Also, they are notified when the service provider is on his way and when the job is completed.

Multiple secure payment options:

Having a single payment option would certainly be a very bad idea as customers have different choices. So, the App should have multiple payment options like a credit card, debit card, cash payment, etc.

Service provider app

Hassle-free registration:

The app should have a hassle-free registration which doesn’t take a lot of time. Once approved, the service provider can start getting tasks

Accept/ Reject requests:

Once a service provider receives a task on the app He should be able to Accept or Reject the offer according to his will.

Chat with customers:

Communication is certainly very essential. Hence, the app must have a chat system in-built which allows service providers to connect with users which allows sharing of important details.
