Telkom has launched a new app called Yep! that helps you find services and small businesses near you — from building contractors to childcare and pet services.
According to the company, the digital marketplace lets customers safely search and purchase services from trusted businesses.
Users can also create online stores on the app — with their own branding and list of services.
The app, which is in early access, covers a range of categories including air conditioning, carpenters and upholsterers, childcare services, cleaning services, electricians, funeral services, pest control, security, waste removal, and more.
Telkom says that the app plans to add more categories and feature upgrades in the future.
Planned features include:
- Full fulfillment from booking appointments to completing invoicing and marking job completion
- Online delivery bookings
- Payments via the app
- Online bids for service requirements based on a business’ or customers project requirements
These updates will mean that not only can consumers use the Yep! app to find services, but other businesses can also find service providers.
In the wake of COVID-19, more services and apps aim to help consumers find and order services remotely.
Earlier this month, a new online food ordering platform launched to help restaurants enable online pickup and delivery orders.
Meanwhile, the Lockdown Bozza app helps South Africans understand lockdown regulations for their region.
