New Delhi, India, April 8, 2015: ThinkVidya.com, India’s no.1 education marketplace today announced the launch of its new identity, UrbanPro.com. UrbanPro.com aims at connecting professionals and consumers across a variety of verticals becoming India’s largest online marketplace for local services. With more than 3 lakh professionals across 1,000+ categories, UrbanPro aims to become the one stop shop for hyperlocal services.
UrbanPro.com, which started as ThinkVidya.com quickly established itself as India’s No.1 education marketplace providing several students and parents the ability to find the right teacher to meet their learning requirements. Taking this ethos further, UrbanPro.com looks at providing the optimal platform for customers and local service providers in the most efficient and cost sensitive manner.
With a presence in more than 10 cities, UrbanPro.com has a unique product offering of being an enabler for both the service provider and the consumer. The portal aims at organizing and offering a seamless experience to both consumers and professionals in the local services category.
We are growing really fast. There are 300,000+ Professionals in total, out of that we have 180,000+ Tuition Teachers, 40,000+ Language Professionals and about 12,000+ professionals in Music and Dance. Moreover, there are 40,000+ Institutes registered with UrbanPro.com.
Speaking on the re-branding, Rakesh Kalra, Founder and CEO said, “UrbanPro’s genesis began with ThinkVidya, which was generating learning requirements from parents and students looking to connect with these teachers and institutes in their cities. Having delighted students, parents and teachers in education, we decided to service more customers by launching additional local services beyond education. While we will continue to grow our education vertical significantly, we will also be launching several new local services and hence have changed our brand name to UrbanPro from ThinkVidya.com.”
Adding further on the repositioning of the brand, Mr. Rakesh Kalra said, “We will be launching new services where the decision making choice for finding a professional is an important decision for the customer (similar to education). The consumer wants to be able to easily find, review and talk to multiple professionals before making their decision. Some of the segments where we will be giving consumers that choice in a city will be categories like Health & Fitness, Interior Designing, Photography and Event Services. A consumer will be able to come and post a requirement in less than a minute and those requirements will be matched immediately with multiple professionals for that service that they can review profiles of and talk to.”
UrbanPro.com will soon connect consumers to professionals in all the below categories:
- Education (existing category)
- Health & Wellness
- Event Management & Services
- Interior Designers
