Task It: The Ultimate Platform for Effortless Gig Economy Collaboration and Hiring Efficiency

Within the gig economy's dynamic landscape, bridging communication gaps and streamlining small job hiring persist as challenges. Inspired by successes in transportation and housing platforms, we discern an opportunity to facilitate seamless communication and bridge this gap effectively.
The prevailing issue lay in the fragmented nature of existing solutions, each catering to specific niches and leaving a void in the gig economy space. Recognising the intricate tapestry of the gig economy, we embarked on a journey to address this gap comprehensively.

The problem at hand was two-fold: gigsters struggled to find opportunities that matched their skills, and gig mongers faced hurdles in efficiently identifying and hiring the right talent for small jobs. The existing platforms, while effective in their domains, lacked the integrative approach necessary to encompass the diverse array of gig jobs. Our pursuit was grounded in the understanding that a unified platform could streamline these interactions, drastically reducing the time and effort involved in the hiring process. Through extensive research and collaboration, we decided to create a space where gigsters could showcase their skills and gig mongers could easily identify and engage the right talent for their specific needs. The ultimate aim was to foster a symbiotic relationship within the gig economy, empowering individuals on both sides to thrive in this ever-evolving landscape.

Tackling Challenges with Versatile Solutions

A notable challenge was enabling users to seamlessly switch profiles based on evolving needs. This emphasised adaptability in the gig economy, driving us to develop a versatile solution accommodating freelance work's dynamic nature effectively.
While exploring the gig economy, we delved into the strategies employed by prominent players such as UrbanClap, Craigslist, Uber, and Airbnb. This comprehensive analysis aimed to uncover the diverse approaches and solutions integrated into their platforms. Identifying the gaps in existing services became pivotal for innovation, revealing a distinct lack of platforms offering a diverse pool of freelancers for offline jobs and a deficiency in location-based tools for swift job matches.

With a clear understanding of the prevailing issues, our research extended to defining base users by studying past data from various applications. This involved deciphering key roles and functions inherent in the client-employee relationship, leading to the articulation of essential functional requirements. Challenges emerged in our pursuit of innovation, notably in the creation of an open, decentralised system for jobs. The aspiration was to cultivate a seamless two-way platform for hiring and working, employing system-level automation to efficiently organise and manage the myriad of interactions within the gig economy.

Bulls Eye Mapping, Brand Identity and Seamless User Onboarding

At the core of our design philosophy was forging a distinct, adaptable product identity. The logo, a simple yet powerful symbol, captures the platform's essence, ensuring versatility across platforms, sizes, and colours. It embodies the product's core action and purpose visually.
Our approach to address the key issues within the gig economy, began through a comprehensive Bull’s eye/Insight mapping exercise. This involved structuring and prioritising features through a bullseye diagram, providing a high-level overview of our product and its interconnected functionalities. The system flow was meticulously outlined, highlighting key interaction points that would serve as reference benchmarks throughout the development process.

User onboarding was a critical aspect of our strategy, aiming for efficiency and engagement. Quick overviews of user-acquired skills, complemented by statistics on the demand and rankings of each skill, provide valuable insights for gigsters. The decentralised data and suggestive search features enhance the user experience, simplifying the process of selecting services and skills. To further streamline the job-seeking process, we implemented a map-based search functionality. This not only enables users to swiftly identify tasks in close proximity but also incorporates an intelligent scheduling and navigation system, facilitating a seamless transition from one task to the next.
