getTOD app brings on-demand repair services to your door

Four Cape Town entrepreneurs have launched an app that takes the hassle out of finding repair and technical services.

getTOD (get Tasks On Demand) allows users to seamlessly connect with service providers who meet their particular need using location based tracking and supplier availability in real time.

There are good people that work in the industry. This app was born out the desire to bring these people together, and get them to the consumers doors as and when they need them.

Shannon Mackrill, Co-founder of getTOD

Co-founder of getTOD, Shannon Mackrill explains that the app seeks to change the perception that the industry is fraught with unreliability and tardiness.

He says that the app is not a directory, but rather, it is an Uber-like on demand service for people in the trades industry.

Currently the app will connect users with locksmiths, electricians, plumbers and handymen; Mackrill says says all service providers are thoroughly vetted to ensure high standards.

According to Mackrill, the business will soon expand to other service categories and has partnered with Build It.
