Skillendar is like a for service providers

Hellotxt adds multilingual support to its ping system for socnets

Skillender recently launched the beta version of its site. It’s a place to share your “skills” but with the added element of your availability.

One the one hand if you are a someone with the skils to provide (like a builder), Skillender is little like a “Tungle for Skills” allowing you to say when you’re available to be hired (although if I know most consultants, that usually means any time). You put in when you are available and in come the requests for jobs based on availability – in theory.

On the other hand, for the people looking for others with skills to provide, it’s a way of booking service providers via an availability calendar. This mimicks the traditional flight or hotel booking system.

Notionally, competitors would be Rated People (job postings), My Hammer (jobs and bids), (directory) and Zazuba (appointments for shops).

However, the real question is when do they take off? Without skills providers (tradesmen?) there database will be empty. They have 43 friends on Facebook. And 67 Twitter followers. Looks like it’s early days for Skillendar.

    Thanks to Mike and TechCrunch for the post

    However this is only a part of what Skillendar is all about. To know more, go to

    In addition, traditional methods of search for a skill/service have never been easy. It takes a lot of effort and time to find someone who provides the service in your locality on your intended date and time. Numerous phone calls and /or emails back and forth are required to query if a provider is available at the time of your convenience. You are disappointed 99% of the time.

    With Skillendar, there is no more disappointment and you get to choose the provider you want on the date & time of your choice.

    I like that they are honest to come up with a pricing from day 1.

    Unlike other freemium that failed (someone said genbook ?)
    I also believe that Tungle days are over… they are burning cash like hell and with a 5$ a month they can’t return a $6.3M investment back…
