A new feature from HomeAdvisor.com. I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Using the Internet to find the right professional for a variety of services around the house has become pretty common with a number of well known sites like HomeAdvisor and Angie’s List battling out. The latest feature from HomeAdvisor is called Instant Booking…
“We’re now providing you with the ability to schedule for the service to be done directly through our platform. For simple jobs, you're scheduling to get the service done, for more complex jobs you may be simply scheduling a time to have them come out and take a look at the job in person to give you a more detailed estimate. What we’re doing is essentially taking the leg work out of trying to get someone on the phone and coordinate schedules.
The feature even integrates seamlessly with Google Calendar. Home Advisor, with more than 90 thousand professionals in its network, is free to use. You can find us at BootCamp.com. I’m Fred Fishkin.
