MILPITAS, Calif., Oct. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Silicon Valley-based company Bimpies has created and released an iOS app that promises to deliver professional services for starting just at $10. Bimpies has successfully recruited local small business professionals to provide a myriad of home and lifestyle services such as handyman, plumbers, makeup-artists, fitness trainers, mobile mechanics, and other specialty services - all in one "marketplace."
The uniqueness to Bimpies is that it is the first true "on-demand-marketplace" app. Bimpies professionals simply mark themselves available in which users will instantly see them by matching search results. Users booking professionals will experience a faster turn-around time and the best service possible at the right price. Next, users will instantly see location updates on arrival time of the hired professional. Moreover, Bimpies professionals are vetted and background checked for quality and reliability.
"Our app is very simple to use. No cheap thrills, just tap and order. The best part is that consumers get to hire pros right in their own backyard and keep their dollars local," said John Chang, CEO of Bimpies.
Using location services technology and complex matching algorithms, the app searches for instantaneous providers closest to the user, and presents users with details and pricing. Users then confirm the purchase and are given real-time updates of arrival time.
"Bimpies opens up a huge opportunity for many who are looking for jobs, freelance or temporary work. Over 35% of the U.S. workforce are freelancing and ditched the 9-5. I believe we create a compelling conversation for many to easily pursue work that they love," said John Chang.
Professionals can also add-on other services on top of their basic service level for added value to the consumer. They can add as many add-on services as needed and charge anywhere from $1-$999 per add-on. This lets users customize their experience with the professional to a minute level.
"The future of hiring pros will be 100% app and bot based. We intend to lead that parade. This is only the beginning of our vision," said John Chang.
The app and services are available only to the Bay Area at this time. The company would not say definitively if it will expand beyond California borders. "We really want to deliver the best in the Bay Area at first. Once that happens, I think the possibilities are endless," said John.
Bimpies is the first real-time on-demand-marketplace technology company that caters to the changing behavior and demands of consumers living in the digital economy. Bimpies mission is to connect local professionals and consumers quicker and providing unique value to both ends. It is based in Milpitas, CA and employs seven people.
