NEW YORK, July 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Romio, a NYC-based tech start-up founded by CEO Tarik Sansal, is developing a breakthrough platform to put trust back into online recommendations. Scheduled to officially launch early fall in New York City—the first of many markets—Romio allows users to search, discover and book local services through a trusted network of friends, family and experts—challenging generic search engine research and taking out the "anonymous" from reviews. From personal trainers, stylists, dog walkers, tutors and more – the platform will empower users to find the best qualified services. For service providers, it offers limitless opportunities to grow their businesses.
"We're incorporating social purpose into the digital economy at Romio, putting power back into the hands of users," said CEO Sansal. "Our vision is to create a community of trust with a human touch, promoting a fair rewards system that enables individuals to genuinely prosper by getting more involved."
Currently in soft launch, Romio has been actively building its network of experts in New York City for more than a year. The company is offering incentives to share recommendations in verticals ranging from Real Estate and Fitness to Beauty and many more – by being early to register in a particular category. Service providers can also begin establishing a base of referrals now to gain Romio status on the platform. For everyday consumers, this invaluable network will be available in early fall at no charge.
"As an expert in the Pets category, I am so excited to see Romio coming to New York City," said Dana Humphrey, The Pet Lady. "Led by Tarik Sansal and a passionate team eager to help others, it's an excellent resource for finding trusted pet care providers that are recommended by your own community. Every day, friends are asking me about who I would use for dog walking or cat sitting, and now I can confidently direct them to Romio to find reliable resources."
To apply for Romio today as an expert or professional in a particular service category, please email email@example.com for more information prior to the official launch, slated for early fall 2017.
Launching officially early fall 2017 in New York City, Romio is changing the way consumers search, discover and book local services by way of trusted recommendations from local experts and through a user's personal social network of friends and family. Led by Founder and CEO Tarik Sansal, Romio is a social movement to drive genuine prosperity for users of the platform, democratizing digital commerce in a peer-to-peer ecosystem while rewarding loyalty and credibility. To date, Romio has secured significant funding from global investors with initial seed funding from reputable names including Bob Gelfond, an early investor of Amazon and several other successful tech companies. Romio plans to expand to major cities across the U.S. by 2018.
