Online Platform Set to Revolutionise How Tradespeople Work: Right Trades is an online platform set to revolutionise how tradespeople work and how trade jobs get done. The one-stop trades service organisation is the brain child of Manchester entrepreneur, Stuart Harvey. Harvey hired, e3creative, to bring his idea to fruition.
Managing Director at e3creative, Jake Welsh, admits to being intrigued by the opportunity. He provides these comments:
“Stuart’s passion for the project was compelling. I later researched points in his business plan and really couldn’t find anything similar that benefits both the trade partner and the customer.”
Welsh further adds:
“The amount of work required to bring Stuart’s concept to life was substantial. I guess the biggest challenge for us was taking this revolutionary idea and creating a workable system. Once we’d nailed the logistics, we dove right into design and development.”
The Right Trades system is now complete and hosts qualified, third-party vetted tradespeople offering fixed priced solutions. The wide spectrum of trade services, available through the website, is equipped to tackle any sized job; from smaller residential projects like room painting or appliance installation to larger ongoing work with local contracts or national blue-chip companies.
Right Trades soft launched their system in April. The website will be fully live for public use by the beginning of June, however, recruiting quality trade partners will continue to be a top priority for Harvey, as he details:
“Now that the technology is in place, we know we’ve created a great product that has the capacity to accomplish big things. Growth is important to us but we recognise it needs to be achieved properly. Trade partners are a big part of our business. Our successes are essentially linked, considering the better they perform – the better we do and vice versa. This is why we want all of our partners to take ownership and be proud to part of this game-changing community.”
Right Trades are recruiting trade partners in the Northwest and Yorkshire regions but have plans to service all of the UK within the next 12 months.
