Snupit Crosses the 1 Million Mark for Customer Requests Posted on Their Platform

Snupit announces that over 1 million customer requests have been posted on their platform for local professionals.

Pietermaritzburg, South Africa - October 18, 2019 / / —

A million requests and a million problems solved; Snupit, South Africa’s leading online platform for finding local professionals, announces that over 1 million customer requests have been posted on their platform.

Avinash Samlall, Snupit’s Founder and CEO, commented: “If you go to the [Snupit] website, you can see the simple message ‘Find local professionals for just about anything’ on the home page. This basically summarizes what Snupit is about. Clearly, this message has resonated with a lot of people. A million times, people have requested to find a local professional through our system. And that’s because we’ve worked hard to build a very smooth process and effective system. One that maintains the simplicity of Snupit’s core and focuses on the needs of the users.”

Snupit’s CEO, Mr Samlall came up with the idea for the business after a frustrating experience looking for a local service provider online. Snupit has come a long way in providing the most hassle-free solution to help South African locals find the best professional for their job. The million requests being celebrated by the company span more than 600 service categories.

Over the years, Snupit has continued to enhance and optimize its user experience to ensure the company remains the top choice for South Africans. Conducting surveys, taking part in national business shows, improving trust and security features are some examples of how Snupit stays ahead of the curve. In the wake of reaching 1 million customer requests, the company is gearing towards reaching twice this number of requests.

Mr. Samlall further commented on Snupit’s milestone and next goal: “This is an incredible accomplishment which has been achieved over a two and a half year period. Our target is to now reach 2 million requests over the next 12 months or sooner. We have optimized our user experience on our site and mobile apps to ensure that customers can quickly and easily find what they are looking for and will return to our site for any of their future requirements to hire services.”

This is a bold objective and will require Snupit to not only sustain its level of commitment to users but step up its efforts to expand its user base and increase returning customers to the site.

Founded in 2012, Snupit makes it easier for millions of customers to use technology to find and hire trusted small businesses across the country. Snupit is one of the largest local services companies in South Africa, offering over 600 categories ranging from handymen to wedding caterers to maths tutors. The service was created by Snupit’s founder after he couldn’t find a particular service online after searching for several days. Today, Snupit has 2 million monthly users and has 350,000 local professionals and businesses listed.
