The world has never been more connected and informed, thanks to rapid technological advancements. In just 25 years, we have gone from talking on the phone and meeting in person to using social media and Uber. Today, the Indomie generation can’t even imagine a world without mobile devices and food delivery apps.
In the past, finding a trustworthy plumber was difficult. You could either ask a friend for a recommendation or call a familiar plumber, even if their service was poor. There was no way to know if a plumber would be honest and reliable.
As technology evolves, it is becoming possible to access a wide range of services from your smartphone. Today, we will discuss a tech platform called wrkman, how it solves the challenges facing the Nigerian artisan industry, and how you can benefit from using it.
wrkman: your all-in-one Home Service Solution
Traditionally, many Nigerians rely on word-of-mouth recommendations and local directories to find skilled artisans and service providers. In a world where convenience and reliability are paramount, wrkman emerges as a game-changer.
But what exactly is wrkman, and why is it revolutionising how Nigerians access essential services?

“wrkman is just like Uber, but for Artisans” – Tunde Ebohon, wrkman CEO said.

So what makes wrkman different from the rest?
No matter how perfect a service is, there are bound to be issues at one point or the other. That’s why wrkman has taken the step to offer a 30-day money-back GUARANTEE. When a job isn’t done the right way or a customer isn’t satisfied, wrkman will send another artisan to do the job again for free, and in extreme cases where a customer isn’t satisfied, they can get their money back.
Another exciting feature from wrkman is the 3% cash back on accumulated services every quarter. So for every dime you spend fixing your pipes, servicing your generator or car, or painting your apartment, you get a 3% cash back from wrkman that can be used for future jobs or sent straight into your bank account.
Some services require you to buy raw materials. For example, if you hire a skilled painter to paint your apartment, you would still need to get paint. wrkman has made it so that you don’t need to leave the app to find stores to buy from. Under the service provider section, you would find stores to buy all kinds of raw materials needed for your job.
With over 22,000 users, 14,000 service providers, 23 services and over 100,000 completed jobs, wrkman is your one-stop app for all home services.
