What’s Happening Behind the Scene at ServiceSutra?

Well we are doing meeting after meeting these days and debating on several aspects. We are meeting service professionals, consumers and learning lots of new things. Yesterday came across the same question

How ServiceSutra is different from other websites? Well we are different because we are trying to build a community of human verified Service Professionals and a platform where hiring service professionals will be easy and simple. We are not yet another directory website or a classified website. We are more than that and trying to create a better connection between consumers and service professionals.

Can you compare price from a couple of Wedding Planners within a click on a directory website?? Can you check the credential of an Interior Designers on a classified website where you have been posting ads?

Simple answer is no and there comes the need of ServiceSutra where not only you get connected to 3 human verified service professionals, but you will be able to check the credential of the professionals, compare their price and negotiate with them before making a decision to hire.

Help us build a platform where consumers can evaluate the trustworthiness of a service provider as well as the price and quality of their services and testimonials of their past clients.

Update: we have soft launched our website and if you know a professional Local Service Provider in India, please let them know. Service Providers can express their interest to register here for free and we will get in touch with them.

There are a number of yellow page and business directory websites on the Internet offering business listing for local services. But when it comes to actually streamlining the process of hiring them, most of the time consumers have to call the service professionals and ask for rates and estimates and go through the same hassle to find out some of them not picking the phone or the number is out of service.

ServiceSutra is a new startup that is trying to solve this problem and building a better connection between consumers and the Local Service Providers. Initially it is being launched for the service providers to list their services and build their profile, and within 2 weeks, it will be open for public to post service request.
