The unique feature of our app is the messaging module. You can chose not to get any calls at all and talk to your service providers via chat feature in our app. In our next version we are also coming up with trial booking & appointment booking feature also,” said, Co-Founder & CEO, Rachit Mathur.

“We are very excited to back the excellent promoters Rachit Mathur and Snehil Khanor and their team in this e-commerce segment which addresses a very real and ubiquitous customer need of finding a good service provider for various services in a micro market. FindYahan not only connects the customer and the service provider but also tracks the customer experience and feedback,” said, Amit Khanna, The Phoenix Fund.
“The biggest reward for an entrepreneur is when consumers start using and appreciating your product. In the last 3 months we have trippled the amount of request we fulfill a day.
