Vancouver, British Columbia, September 4, 2014 – Yocale is pleased to announce its official launch, following the successful completion of its “soft launch” phase, which began in June 2014.
Yocale is a hyper-local ebooking and business management tool that connects local service providers to the consumers in their locale by creating a neighborhood marketplace. It makes a match to fill vacancies even without an already-established relationship with the business. It’s a great and affordable way to promote local businesses without the complexity and cost of traditional tools and methods.
Arash Asli, co-founder and CEO of Yocale, and former Executive Vice President of Aptean, a global enterprise application software firm, stated:
“Yocale answers a glaring need in the marketplace to make it easier for customers and service providers to meet. It is a low-cost, high-impact solution for small and medium sized businesses. Yocale lowers their costs, increases their productivity, and makes it easier to retain existing and attract new customers.”
Yocale’s team is now 50 people strong, making it one of British Columbia’s fastest growing start-up companies. From a standing start in June, Yocale has built a base of a few hundred service providers and a few thousand users and members in this initial phase.
The pilot phase secured Yocale’s position and presence on Vancouver’s North Shore. Appointment-based service providers ranging from legal, medical, dentistry, cosmetology, automobile servicing, and many more are now paying customers. Yocale is now rolling out to other parts of Greater Vancouver in addition to targeting other major cities across North America.
Farzad Mazarei, who left Oracle Corporation to co-found Yocale, and is Chief Operating Officer, commented:
“From the start, we wanted to create a sustainable, revenue generating, and profit making enterprise that is focused on tangible customer solutions, not on hype. We have done that far sooner than even our most optimistic forecasts”.
