Today we’re super happy to announce the launch of Airtasker Business – a dedicated business service aimed at helping organisations outsource almost any task that they need done within their business.
So why did we set up Airtasker Business? We started noticing that more and more jobs being posted on Airtasker were coming from businesses – some big, some small and to make our service even more convenient for businesses completing tasks with anywhere from 1 to 1,000 runners, we decided to kick up a notch and create a dedicated Account Management Pod to coordinate teams of Airtasker Runners for projects like mystery shopping (store checks), promotional work (like flyer handouts) and office admin as well as marketing projects (like research and product testing).
Companies can now use Airtasker Business to scale their workforce up or down as needed, and they can now have even more confidence through our business-ready account management team that ensures tasks are completed correctly and on time. With the number of feedback reviews growing everyday and so many runners completing a thorough application process before being video screened and ID-checked, we’re excited about being able to provide a really high quality service to businesses.
We think that Airtasker Business will represent simple and cost-efficient way of tapping into a large workforce to complete short-term jobs like flyer handouts, event promotions, and mystery shopping (store checks).
Also, as most Airtasker Runners have a smartphone or tablet, we’re excited about the potential to leverage features like cameras and GPS location check-ins (Foursquare integration perhaps??) to make it easier to outsource and manage teams completing off-site jobs such as mystery shopping, data collection and store checks. For example, retailers can now have an army of runners go into multiple store locations, complete a short survey through a smartphone app and take photos of product positioning with their smartphone camera so they can see what’s going on in their retail channels at a really low cost.
Could you use Airtasker Runners to make your business scale quickly and be even more efficient? Would love to hear your feedback in the comments below.
Onwards and upwards! Tim
