ServisHero, the Malaysian based app which connects local service providers with customers, is now available in Thailand.
Described as the Uber for services, ServisHero essentially enables users to find, get quotes and book all manner of different services for the home and office.
Customers can hire anyone from an air conditioning engineer and electrician to a photographer and fitness instructor direct to their home or workplace from the ServisHero mobile app.
Founded in June 2015, ServisHero was born after CEO and co-founder Karl Loo became frustrated after unsuccessfully trying to find someone to fix his air con unit at his home in Malaysia.
The launch in Thailand comes at the same time the company announced it has landed a $2.7 million investment from Golden Gate Ventures.
The company plans to use the investment to build on its early success in Singapore and Malaysia, where the app has now been downloaded more than 50,000 times.
Initially launching in Bangkok, people in the capital will soon be able to order some of the many service providers available through the ServisHero website and mobile app, which is now available in English, Thai, Malay and Mandarin.
“During our testing period in Bangkok we saw phenomenal demand for ServisHero, so we are looking forward to cementing ourselves as an indispensable tool for all service providers in Thailand,” country manager Noppol Toochinda said in a statement.
The company believes that it’s high levels of mobile penetration represent an exciting opportunity for ServisHero.
“ServisHero’s entry into Thailand is well-timed with the rapidly increasing demand for solutions that extend beyond the traditional directory”, said Karl Loo, CEO of ServisHero.
“The maturity of our operational system in Malaysia and Singapore has allowed us to grow rapidly – we wanted to introduce our acclaimed service to Thailand which experiences similar problems to Malaysia when it comes to price, quality and transparency for local services”.
