According to a recent poll by Helpbit, powered by SOUQ.com, a majority of AUE residents 87% have used an app to book a delivery or service, preferring it to visiting a store or calling a helpline.
The poll also revealed that these apps are being used regularly, with 70% choosing to book a service or delivery at least once a week or more, with 11% using them every single day.
The most popular services booked through an app include cleaning (61%) and shopping home delivery (55%) and the average monthly budget of between AED 200 – 500.
Mohammed Sleiman, managing director and co-founder, Helpbit, said, “We know that people in the UAE are pressed for time and have a lot to pack in during the busy periods. What is interesting is that people are turning to apps such as Helpbit to make life a lot smoother.”
