Our mission is to improve lives through fulfilling tasks that improve relationships, make us more intelligent, and ultimately increase our ability to spend more time on more important activities. By connecting people with things to be done with those who are skilled at doing them, we can become one of South Africa's leading companies, the first choice for customers to get things done and for service providers to grow their business.
Getting things done is great. More so, getting the job done and actually enjoying the outcome is the real reward to getting the largest project done with the least amount of hassle. The problem is finding someone skilled to help you solve your problem is still a hassle. Wasn't Technology supposed to help us with this?
While looking to achieve that beach body, find a university tutor, fix the plumbing in our houses or even get the lawn mowed, we were spending more time sourcing the right professional rather than spending time doing the things we love. We would rather take our wives out then hunt for an electrician that can come in next week. We would rather go to the gym than search for an accountant to do our taxes. This is why we started Bidbeat. We wanted a better way to find local service professionals who could do what we needed, were available when we needed them, and were interested to help. With a background in sales, marketing and accounting, as a team we felt strongly positioned to tackle this challenge and build a business that could be everyone’s first and best choice for getting from to-do to done as effeciently as possible.
We first conceived of this idea in a shared workspace in Pretoria, South Africa, are building the platform and creating the reality of Bidbeat and going to market in South Africa - and through it all we are powered by people.
The Bidbeat Pledge
When we started Bidbeat, our first motivation was to create the kinds of experiences that we expected – every time. If you feel that you had anything less than a great experience, let us know, and we’ll do everything in our power to make it right. In return, we ask that service providers do their best to create great outcomes and deliver remarkable service. We ask that customers deal honestly and fairly with service providers, creating the conditions for the service provider to delight you. We succeed together.
