Minneapolis, Minn. (PRWEB) August 16, 2013
Seva Call launches in the Twin Cities today to connect consumers to the right service professionals by phone. Seva Call is a free, algorithm-based, virtual concierge service that lets consumers compare top-rated, available businesses that work on the consumers’ schedule. Minnesota residents could risk spending hours researching and calling various service professionals if looking the traditional ways, but with Seva Call it takes mere minutes. Already helping customers in more than 45 other cities across the country find and talk to the right service professionals, Seva Call is ready to launch in Minneapolis and St. Paul.
To quickly connect to available service professionals, the Twin Cities’ residents just visit http://www.sevacall.com and enter their location, availability and a description of the problem at hand. Seva Call’s algorithm filters through over 6,700 local businesses and selects the best matches based on proximity, availability, the job needed and even quality control measures like online consumer ratings and reviews, social media interactions and call analytics. The consumer is then connected with up to three pros in their area within minutes.
In over 50 service categories like roofing, painting and heating and cooling, Seva Call saves consumers time and energy while finding the skilled professionals who match their schedules, service their needs and answer their questions right away. All of this without compromising personal privacy, charging membership fees or interfering with the quality customer service small businesses are known to provide.
“Seva Call has been adding cities one at a time, but it’s great to take the plunge for the twin cities,” said Seva Call founder Manpreet Singh. “We’re able to help twice as many consumers this way.”
Seva Call also works for small businesses. It’s a great tool for those that find traditional marketing and lead generation too costly and risky. With Seva Call, top-rated local businesses preview service request details for free by phone, text or email and are given the option to accept or reject the referral based on the details provided. This saves company time, and money, as Seva Call only charges a flat-rate when the business has a conversation with a consumer.
Rex Hayden of JDI Windows raved that, after signing up with Seva Call, his first referral turned into an $11,000 job. Since Seva Call does not take a percentage of any business’ revenue, Hayden only paid a low pre-negotiated rate for that highly profitable contract and potentially life-long professional relationship.
The Seva Call team will launch its iPhone and Android app in the near future to provide the same instant responsiveness to service needs far from home in order to help more busy Minneapolis and St. Paul residents.
Seva Call raised $1.3 million in Series-A funding last fall and has launched in a plethora of cities across the United States including Miami, Atlanta, Indianapolis, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Columbus, and Boston. Connect with Seva Call on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
