Tasks apps for the home maintenance sector help users keep track of small household projects. A task app designed for this sector should allow users to maintain a list of tasks that need to be completed and organize them by location or time frame. Users can also add notes and photos to each project, use GPS tracking features to mark where each job begins and ends, and assign jobs to other users.
Task apps for home maintenance are similar to other online labor marketplaces. Task apps often involve local services, such as house cleaning, painting, lawn care, home repair, and delivery. Examples of popular task apps include Handy, TaskRabbit, and Gigwalk.
App will be a web admin panel as well as a worker and customer app. It will connect home based customers with home service providers.
A task app can grow rapidly by providing a simple and convenient way for people to pay for home maintenance services. Because many of the tasks on a service provider's schedule are one-off projects, task app users will need an easy way to set up new appointments with local service providers. Task apps should also provide home owners with detailed information about the type of work that they need to do in order to prevent future issues.
Task apps face legal and reputational risks related to the provision of services critical to human safety, such as plumbing, electrical work, and trucking. Task apps should have a clear process for vetting contractors and subcontractors, and they may want to consider requiring background checks for all workers. They also need to regulate the posting of tasks by contractors, since some tasks that are posted might be illegal or in violation of relevant health codes.
