BOULDER, Colo., Aug. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FlipTask, a new online marketplace that is revolutionizing the way tasks and errands get done, has announced today its expansion into Denver and surrounding areas. The Boulder-based company, which matches consumer and business tasks with local help to complete them, will now be available throughout the region effective immediately. The expansion joins FlipTask's already established presence in the greater Boulder area. Through FlipTask's unique online marketplace, local residents and businesses can list virtually any short-term task, large or small, such as personal errands, business work, and other needs.
"Whether you're a business or an individual, nearly everyone has more on their to-do list than they can complete," said FlipTask founder Aric Franzmeier. "With FlipTask, you can source virtually any personal or business task, of any size, and at whatever price fits your budget."
Launched in 2012, FlipTask matches daily tasks listed on its online marketplace with helpful local workers within the local community. Personal tasks listed on FlipTask can range from grocery delivery, household cleaning, pet care and other errands for area professionals, executives, parents and senior citizens. Businesses can post everything from help with filing and other clerical duties to day workers and special happenings or events.
How FlipTask works is simple. Businesses and consumers post help needed of any kind. Workers create and share profiles that include photos, work history and other special skills. FlipTask then works to best match the two and sends alerts and other updates. Listing is free on FlipTask, and users can pay securely via the site to make the entire experience easy, safe and efficient. Tasks can be of any type, duration and budget.
"A lot of people think that having a helping hand requires a big job, consistent employment or a lot of money," added Franzmeier. "In reality, there are hundreds of Task Runners on FlipTask available for virtually any type of task, errand or budget. The task can be virtually anything!"
Unlike sites like Craigslist or print newspapers, FlipTask streamlines the process with simple and efficient tools from start to finish, plus added benefits such as being able to review user profiles, communications tools and the ability to pay securely all in one place. FlipTask users include local students, professionals, small and startup businesses, senior citizens, families and anyone else who needs help with tasks and errands.
Franzmeier, a University of Colorado Boulder alum, launched FlipTask to help meet the needs of local residents and businesses for short-term help, as well as help the local Boulder and Denver job market and economy.
