We’re in the Press: In the Midst of a Pandemic, Discontract Attracts Investment of 300.000 Eur for Growth

6/29/2020

Despite the ongoing global pandemic that has turned the daily lives of many upside down, the team at Discontract looks ahead with optimism. A recent article by Verslo Žinios, a leading business newspaper in Lithuania, talks about Discontract as the new way to conveniently book home services, and discusses the 300.000 Eur investment, secured during these turbulent times. We’re including a short summary below.

€0,3 million invested in a Lithuanian startup Discontract. What’s next?

Discontract began operations just a little while ago, yet it already has over 1.000 registered users on the app. Consistent user growth and funding, received from Koinvesticinis Fondas and private investors during the pandemic, makes us believe we’re heading the right way!

The investment will go towards Discontract’s growth. We’re not wasting any time, and are already putting all our efforts into bringing our users the possibility to book and provide home and office services not only in Vilnius, but in other Lithuanian and neighboring countries’ cities.

Residents of Vilnius can already book home or office services more quickly, conveniently and often – for a lower price.

You know the feeling when you need to find a plumber or a specialist able to arrive quickly for an emergency appliance repair? Or when you need to book a service for furniture moving, assembly or… well, anything else – and all you can think of is how much it’s all going to test your patience? You don’t feel like spending hours browsing different sites and then some more just trying to contact agencies or service providers anymore?

We have good news for you! Now, all of that is in the past. Discontract makes this process much shorter and simpler – all the user has to do is download our mobile app, and do a quick search. The app then provides a list of recommended local professionals, and allows you to choose conveniently based on ratings, experience and individual rates. All further communication with the service provider and tracking of your task will also be possible on the app itself.

With Discontract, you will not only find attractive rates from independent contractors, but automated payments and invoices, and a quick search option as well – it’s not only money that you will be saving, but your time too.

A new way to increase your income

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the economies of all European countries. For those who suddenly find themselves out of work or are looking to supplement their income, Discontract offers a new possibility to make some money. At this moment, over 50 service providers in Vilnius already work through our app, and this number just keeps getting bigger. Discontract serves as a mediator that help clients find exactly what they’re looking for, and allows service providers to reach more customers, receive payments quickly, and get rid of all administrative hassles.
