Bringing Tech to Home Service Pros | Adi Azaria from Workiz

When we think of the digital technology boom, we often think of financial, entertainment media, data services, and other enterprise-level industries as the major beneficiaries.

But information technology has the ability to benefit the locksmiths, repairmen, electricians, and landscapers as well. As a former locksmith himself, Adi Azaria understands the need.

Transport routing, communications management, invoicing… much of it was done on paper, and it meant a lot of wasted time. “Everything was very manual back in the days,” Adi says. “Surprisingly, 20 years later, it’s still very manual for about 70% of the market.”

So Adi (who goes by Didi), founded Workiz with his two partners. Workiz now brings the sophistication of 21st century information technology to the working class service industries.

On this edition of UpTech Report, Didi tells us about how his early experience in the field informed his vision, and how this technology is helping the workers in vans save time and operate smarter.
