Glorby was specifically designed for people who have busy schedules and need to free up time for other productive things. The platform connects them to others who have the time and necessary skills to do pressing chores.
With Christoffer Bolseth as the CEO and Ejeh Samuel as Country Managing Director, the 5-man team commenced operations on January 10, 2017. Glorby is a subsidiary of its parent company — Bolseth group Nigeria.
How Glorby works
All a user has to do is summed in three phases.
- Booking — customers list the task needed to be done, select from Glorby’s network of pre-approved contractors (Taskers).
- Payment — clients pay directly via the app or website.
- Delivery — get the assigned tasker for the job.
In order to ensure safety and reliability, Glorby performs a background check on every tasker before they are enlisted on the platform. This way, users can feel safe to allow approved contractors (taskers), — who might be strangers — into their homes to perform needed tasks.
Glorby positions itself as a market leader in digital labour. Hence, the team recognises no competitor. Samuel believes they are paving new ways in their chosen path and can easily take on any upcoming competitor. For a new startup, Samuel’s confidence is quite high.
Perhaps, Iwuchukwu Chinonso — the team’s client manager — will put his skills to work and see to establishing solid client relationships that would keep them coming back. Same goes for Hussein Oyelaja Kenny (Digital Marketing Developer) and Emeka Mbah ( Web Developer ). Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see how Glorby fares in the long run.
