HLPRS is a Netherlands-based company that provides clients with the possibility to find help in the household with cleaners, handypeople, gardeners, and babysitters.
Everything is well-organized for both customers and helpers: from invoicing to customer service.
HLPRS offers people of different ages, cultures, and backgrounds a chance to work and make others happy. This platform assists service providers with a (side) job that gives satisfaction. Cleaners, handypeople, gardeners, and babysitters can choose where, when, and what hourly rate they will work. Clients choose a person who will help them with housework based on the desired service frequency, cost, and a worker’s experience.
HLPRS wanted to integrate all customers and providers into a single system that would help to make transactions automatically while not expanding the company’s workload. We сreated an online marketplace with the following key elements:

Development & maintenance – ongoing
Syndicode has designed and developed a fully-automated system with a two-sided marketplace. This helped expand the upper limit of business revenue and reduce maintenance costs.
The main challenge was creating the entire product from scratch with little input. The system included registration, search, reminder systems, landing generation system, payment systems, analytics, and more. There was a heavyweight technical implementation.
Before the marketplace creation, HLPRS had to work in a “semi-manual” mode. Separate processes were automated, but there was no single system. Data duplication significantly hampered order processing time. Staff and delivery expenses hindered business growth.
About a year ago we decided we need something new for a company. We looked for a team of great engineers and came across Syndicode. They helped us bring our ideas to life. Any feature we asked to develop – they were always ready for us.
Syndicode was a great match with HLPRS. We are happy to have a team of developers from Syndicode.
Now our system works beyond our expectations.
Thank you, Syndicode.
