Company / App Name: TalkLocal
What does it do?
TalkLocal is a smart local search app that aggregates business information and connects consumers to the right local pro by phone in about 90 seconds- eliminating phone tag and other hassles like scheduling conflicts and outdated listings.
Why do we need it?
Ninety percent of people research local businesses online, but most businesses aren’t spending time or money making themselves easier to find online. Turning web searches into phone calls makes the right pros more accessible.
Who is it for?
TalkLocal is for service pros like plumbers/mechanics/painters as well as the consumers who need their services, especially if they’re like most folks – prefer discussing complex problems by phone; but hate playing tag with voice mails.
What makes it stand out from the crowd?
The TalkLocal app lets you submit your service details by voice and we connect you by Voice over IP so that your contact information remains completely private unless you decide to share it with the business.
We’re rolling out a smart click to call button for online business directories. It will let businesses preview your service needs in real time to confirm that they can do the job. If they can’t, TalkLocal finds who will.
