Delhi, India (PressExposure) October 18, 2011 -- Justdial has made the 'impossible', 'possible'. It is one of the few Indian start-ups to not only start its service in the US but also might create over thousands of job opportunities there. This Indian search engine has now arrived at the global markets and has plans to expand its services to other countries as in the future.
Making the heavy local business directory and Yellow Pages India books redundant, Justdial allows you to access information over Phone, Web, WAP and SMS. The operating model is simple and straight. The user makes a call and asks for any business or service and Justdial texts the information instantly on the user's mobile device. Apart from paying for the outgoing call the service in free for the users, businesses that are listed on its website pay a certain fee to get their service/product promoted.
The US audience however is at an advantage because the Justdial service is available on the toll-free number 1800-JUSTDIAL. This will ensure the company is one step ahead of IVR services like Google 411 (it is the US version of local business directory service) which charge callers. Also unlike the automated IVR service of 411, Justdial will have a live person attending the call, making the service more human and friendly. VSS Mani is sure that any initial road-blocks they will face can be overcome in time.
According to VSS Mani, setting up Justdial's services in developed countries is a logical decision. Unlike here in India it is relatively easier to get local to medium businesses to sign up as competition there is fierce and every business needs to promote its service aggressively. Justdial is going to bank on this market potential and has already started establishing relationships with such middle-level players.
From being born in an anti-capitalist country to making his presence felt in the capitalist heartland of the world, VSS Mani, founder of Justdial has surely made it big.
