AceBy is a location based freelance mobile app that connects employers and freelancers on-demand set to help employers hire the best talent and for job seekers to find work from their locations instantly.
The simple platform allows a user to post a project for free, and they’ll start to receive bids then choose to get projects done at fixed rates, and only pay once you are 100% satisfied.
Founded by Derrick Agyiri, AceBy is as simple as a walk in the park and aims to help users get more done with freelancers in their location by simply allowing them to post their projects for free and then sift through the many bids they receive to pick the best candidate for the job.
“Our sophisticated algorithm will connect you to the best freelancers in your location. Download the mobile app complete your profile and you are good to go,” said Agyiri. “It’s always free to post any project or search for your ideal freelancer and make an offer on our app. Once this is done, we notify freelancer to submit their bids or accept your offer in minutes!”
A user browses through profiles, proposals to hire a favorite freelancer to work on their project. Users hire at no cost and lets them release payments only upon completion of your project.
“You are in control, so you get to make the decisions. The best part, your project is completely insured,” he added, talking about its escrow payments services which help cut fraud on the online platform. The location based mobile app connects employers and freelancers on-demand in the same location to reduce the delays in delivery of projects over factors such as time zones etc.
The current job categories on the site include Accounting & Consulting
Admin Support, Customer Services, Data Science & Analytics, Writing, Design
Engineering & Architecture, Home Services, It & Networking, Legal, Sales & Marketing, Translation, Web, Mobile & Software among others.
The major competition with these is getting people to use it instead of Freelancer which is a global brand. In July 2017, AceBy, Inc. raised $150,000 Seed from Anslem Oshionebo and Zero Pro Inc to make this happen.
