With over 40% of all traffic on the web now being generated by mobile phones and more than half of searches being local, it is critical that retail service providers pitch their online business to customers via mobile.
Recognising the power of this opportunity and the challenge for many small businesses to take advantage of this opportunity, local entrepreneur, Andreja Brkan, has built an service portal around the concept that mobile phone users want to find out what is available nearby and now.
In the always-on world she believes that customers want to be able to book their services on demand. Accordingly, she has called her business, and the app that will drive it ONDI.
ONDI allows users to select a service from a drop-down list or simply type a word into the search engine and it will find them nearby service providers. With one click, their request goes through to the service provider and the booking can be instantly confirmed.
Inner city Brisbane is the launch platform and she has been busy signing up local hair and beauty salons, massage and health clinics as well as personal trainers and gyms.
“There will be over fifty service providers available on day one and we expect rapid growth after that,” she told Business Voice.
