November 2, 2009View for printing™ , a Missoula-based company with roots deep in Montana, will begin its nationwide roll-out in Missoula, ahead of five major U.S. cities.

Departing for work this morning, and running late, you noticed you had a leaking sink. Grabbing the thick yellow book under the phone you dashed for the door, hoping to peruse it for a plumber while at stop lights. A seemingly simple task, your heart sinks when you see over three hundred and fifty listed across seven pages of plumbers. How to find the right one? Americans waste millions of hours each year in search of dependable, honest, service providers who can accomplish tasks for them at a fair price when they want it done. Typically, the first stop is at their “Yellow Pages™” book or, an online version where they are beset with a bewildering list of vendors with little more than display ads to search for help. Until now, it has not been possible for consumers to receive and quickly review real-time bids from a wide array of vendors, and select one capable of providing dependable, honest, timely service (with a documented performance history) at a fair price when they want it done.

A Change in Paradigm.™ brings together task requests and task fulfillment in a single, quick, easy to use marketplace. Users can post tasks to the site via computer, smartphone, web and short message service (SMS) and have them instantly distributed to service providers throughout their community. Service providers receive notifications of requests via e-mail, fax, and SMS text. Within moments users will receive actual bids from service providers, based on parameters they, (the users) established, (licensed, bonded, time of day, etc.), to complete their task.™ creates the most efficient real-time connection possible for accomplishing any task from fixing a sink to replacing a muffler on a car.
