Looking back at the first year of Gapoon!
27th March 2015- That was the day when we officially launched our brainchild after much deliberation and resistance, not necessarily from our parents, but from within ourselves. There’s no better time to look upon what has been a roller coaster journey 🙂
We started with a vision, a vision to organize what was virtually disorganized. It was tried upon, but never succeeded. Fueled by passion and determination, we wanted to make your process of seeking daily services as routine as booking your Uber.
We launched our product on this day a year back and there’s no turning back since then. Our early adopters and believers were quick to support us with feedback / inputs on everything on the platform – the app, the service and features they wanted to see implemented. We saw the network effect playing out – with lot of introductions and referrals. This journey would not have been easy without you! Thank you for believing in us, and our vision!
“A must try for at least once! Have tried other such apps and found this have an edge over them. It is really very user friendly, spontaneous in replying” – Aditya Garg
Our highlights over the year:
Our happy customers grew from 0 to 15000.
We gave employment to 100+ people, who now depend on Gapoon everyday!
”The CEO, Apoorva Mishra has always inspired us to dream big. With the company we have also grown in number and richer in experience. We started to work more systematically. Giving quotations to customers, consistent follow-ups, maintaining checklists during work, service guarantee of the company ensured that work was done more systematically, efficiently, professionally and easily which resulted in happier customers and repeat customers.’ – Pankaj, Gapoon Vendor‘
We also got featured in FB start, Livemint, Deccan Herald, ET & many more.
We launched the pioneer product Gapoon Maintenance Cover (GMC) package which is India’s first comprehensive home service package that starts for as low as INR 1,999 for all covering all basic services ranging from electrician, plumber to laptop repairs. We’re really excited about it and hope this changes the landscape of home services industry in India.
Here’s few testimonials that have made our day 🙂
“When I came back from my mother’s house a few months after my delivery, the sight at my home was something that I dreaded. With little or no support I was wondering how to manage everything. That’s when my hubby handed over a card that was left hanging on our door and I made the first call to Gapoon. From then there has been no looking back! Be it plumbing services or electrical services, even the smallest of our problems were taken care of so professionally. Within the first two services we received from Gapoon, we were sure this was going to be a long term association. Quick response, almost immediate service from vendors, very professional in their approach and completely hassle free service for customers. Thank you Gapoon!” –Anusha Iyer
“A very happy customer of Gapoon!!! Based on the price, quality and engagement, deserve way more than 5 stars for work done at my apartment. I was hesitant to take services from Gapoon as I thought these services will be over priced and the workers shall be same unskilled ones that I get from any other vendor. I still thought to give it a try to have a feel of ‘app’ driven services To my great surprise end to end handling of the whole engagement was thoroughly professional. One of the kind I associate with professionals in western world. Not only the vendors that did the painting and cleaning were well skilled in their job, but they had all the equipment to do a neat finish. Overall, I highly recommend Gapoon to all the professional like me who are short on time and feel cheated every time we get some work done by a plumber, electrician, painter or a cleaner. I wish all the best for Gapoon. Think this will revolutionize the way we deal with our home problems.” -Rakesh Pande
