The world is becoming more and more digitalized. Everything from shopping to job search is online right now. The online platforms created are becoming more and more useful for people from all walks of life regardless of any other criteria. The convenience these online platforms provide is unmatchable to the rest. Earlier it was the shopping and the products sector that went through a major revolution in the online sphere. Portals like flipkart and Amazon forever changed the shopping experience. Clothing brands and even household products like fruits and vegetables have gone online. Now every product can be purchased online.
The next sector that is now going through a major revolution and going online is the service sector. LocalOye a Mumbai based company has a unique platform. All services from welding to yoga instruction to electrical can be found and hired and paid for through this website. Started as a brain child of Bangalore based Aditya Rao in October 2013 he thought of exploiting the gaping hole that market for services had and LocalOye was born. He says “these days everything can be bought online but not services”.
There were of course websites which provided list of services but nothing comprehensive. The company began as a platform to book the services of a caterer banquet halls but then soon realized the difficulty was not only for the wedding services but also true for most of the other services like beauty services, home services and hobby classes. He expanded his business to other areas. The app went mobile only in July 2015 but resumed some of the services as desktop friendly again. The firm has relocated its base to Bangalore in July 2015. The platform has expanded to 2 more metros from just Mumbai to Delhi and Bangalore. The business is rapidly expanding and is attracting a lot of investors.
