New On-Demand Tradie Economy Switches on in Australia
Sydney, September 2018. New research studies by EY Sweeney and L.E.K reveal the potential for growth in the residential trade sector as tradies and consumers seek smarter ways to engage. Commissioned by hipages, the research reveals that digitisation of the trade sector is fuelling an ‘On-Demand Tradie Economy’ in Australia.
The On-Demand Tradie Economy represents an emerging digital revolution of the residential trade sector, which is fully optimised through technologies that streamline consumer-tradie connections, communications and job coordination. Set to help 250,000 Australian trade businesses* grow by easing their daily administration and helping them win more work, this new economy is equally driven by services that offer substantial relief to nine million households* who need help managing tradies.
