Advantages for the skilled tradesperson as well
Working via MySpecialist.be means much less stress and fewer concerns for the contractors. They can sign up for free to the network and offer their services. The platform then takes care of everything: the first contract, cost estimates, schedules, and invoicing are simply done via the website, so that the tradesmen can focus on what they do best: their job.
Finally, MySpecialist.be also takes care of the payments and calculates 6% commission on the working hours, which is only to be paid for cost estimates that have been accepted. The additional reputation that the tradesmen enjoy thanks to the digital marketing machine of MySpecialist.be is of course a great advantage.
