Handiss optimistic in Future Stars
Provides construction companies, designers and engineers with the means to recruit freelance engineer
A web platform that provides construction companies, designers and engineers with the means to effectively recruit freelance engineers on any given project, Handiss, has seen encouraging results from exhibiting in GITEX Future Starts at GITEX Technology Week 2017.
"The UAE is the next target market for us and this is why it was important for us to be here at GITEX. We're here to look for opportunities on how to expand in this market," says Mark Khoury, chief operating officer, Handiss.
"The people we've met so far have been very optimistic about the potential for Handiss so we're very positive about the event," he adds.
Khoury says Handiss is better than other platforms like Upwork and Freelancer.com, because they're general freelancing platforms and are too generic when it comes to construction. "The sector is too large and too complicated to be effectively represented on one of these general platforms, because you need to cater to all the specifics of the market, from certification and experience to being able to quote per metre squared or by square foot."
