New platform, Worxler, to support Brits in Spain
The millions of Brits living in and visiting Spain each year will now have an invaluable tool at their fingertips as brand new website, www.worxler.com, is launched today. Making it easier for foreign visitors and expats in Spain to find local suppliers – from tour guides to babysitters, hairdressers to plumbers – Worxler aims to remove the middleman, and open up significant new local connections to the British expat and tourist market.
With the slogan “Get the service you need, anywhere”, Worxler is a tool created around real demand, and will allow people to locate and hire quality suppliers in a country they are unfamiliar with. “Taskers” (those who carry out the service) are given feedback in the form of a star rating, allowing “Askers” (those who require the service) to choose only the most trusted locals to support them while overseas.
Initially to be launched in Spain, the service will soon be rolled out across Europe and beyond. CEO and Co-Founder Valentin Kachanov commented: “We made Worxler for Spain because it’s a great example of a place with a real need for this service. Spain is a popular country that has managed to maintain its cultural and linguistic independence, but it also means that it can be hard to find what you need if you don’t have a lot of Spanish. Worxler offers the space for Brits and anyone who speaks English to find a service quickly and easily, working with locals who have the skills and understand their language.”
“Worxler will give local experts a chance to really communicate with visitors and expat communities in their area and support them in the same way they regularly support their existing customer base, offering a top quality, reasonably-priced service”, he added.
With no fee for sourcing and hiring, or for posting a task, Worxler currently offers support in the areas of: Home Repairs; Child Care and Tutoring; Transportation; Household Chores; Education and Training; Health and Beauty; Consulting; and Internet. At the time of launch, around 2,700 users have registered to either offer or avail of services across every major city and tourist resort in Spain.
Mobile apps for iOS, Android and Windows Phone that will offer additional options and services are currently being developed, and are expected to be launched in the summer.
Launched in Spain in early 2015, Worxler represents the simplest way for users to hire trustworthy specialists and services they need when travelling or living abroad. Worxler’s mission is to remove the language and social barriers, bringing together clients and contractors without the middleman. Mobile apps for iOS, Android and Windows Phone that will offer additional options and services are currently being developed.
The company was founded in 2014 by a group of private investors. With their head office in Moscow, and an international team based across several countries, Worxler expects to expand to other European and Asian markets in the very near future.
