Helpr joins hands with Avon to supply manpower

Tags: Jobs
Tech startup, Helpr is foraying into the online household services market th­rough the app-based ro­ute. The app will enable individuals to avail hassle-free on-demand household services at the click of a button.

Helpr, co-founded by three alumni of PSG College of Technology, Coimbatore, has joined hands with Avon Facility Management Services to ensure ready and constant supply of blue collar workers needed to carry out a range of household services including plumbing, electrical repair, air-conditioner maintenance, carpentry, pest control and cleaning.

Avon, a division of Quess Corp, is a leading player in facility management services, especially for corporate facilities. It has over 18,000 employees on its rolls and its services are spread across 22 cities in India.

“On any given day large number of people, across cities keep looking for household service agencies to carry out such works. While getting the right people itself has been a problem, one also has to worry about the safety and other issues in letting outsiders in. While our app-based approach not only offers prompt on demand service, our exclusive partnership with Avon takes care of all other issues,” Vijayramkumar, co-founder, Helpr told FC. “This initiative also ensures dignity to blue collar workers,” he added.

“We have launched our services on closed beta now and will be launching our full fledged services next week from Bangalore. After Bangalore, we plan to expand the service offerings to Chennai, Hyderabad and Pune in the immediate months,” he said.
