Many times we needs a plumber to fix a leakage from tap on our washroom or we need a driver for a short trip this weekend. You can just Google all and find all these service providers but there is no way to make sure are those listed on different websites are worth or not. So how can you find the local service providers and make sure they work as they are expected to do.
Here comes Toost, a mobile app that provides assistance in finding trusted local service providers which were earlier used by your friends, The app is driven by friends’ recommendations based on their personal experiences and level of connection with the business. It is the digital equivalent of word of mouth that everyone relies on but powered by the phone graph and user community’s contributions. . At present, the app has over five million businesses and over 750m unique people and business identities on the graph.
A practical and beneficial option for mobile users, it assures reliability as the decisions are based on trust and word of mouth instead of depending on the information from archaic local search market.

Rohit Raghav, Co-founder, Toost, commented, “Local business search is treated as a utility service where providing name, number and address of the business is considered adequate. However, the highly unorganized and no-quality-control market leaves people high and dry with painfully bad service quality. This is an absolute no for today’s busy and mobile consumer. Toost deploys globally unique phone-graph based technology innovation to transform local search into social & mobile search. It gets users the businesses that their friends use and trust and also helps them engage with their friends in choosing the right service provider. Toost’s powerful and proprietary technology is set to end the rudimentary ways local search is done today.”
