Developer description

It’s time for today’s social media to improve our lives in a practical way. GetAssist is the purposeful social network that connects you with other like-minded people and local businesses to share information, advice, ideas and to receive the kind of help that makes your everyday life better.

The features of the free social membership include:

Purposeful Business Connections – Connects micro and small businesses on a dedicated platform with one another and with their communities.
Social Media Networks – Offers both public and private social media networks to connect businesses and users to share information, advice and ideas.
Make Requests – Request help with about anything. Service providers respond, users select a provider and then review them once the work is complete.
Grapevine – An ad-free, filterable newsfeed on which users share updates, links and photos with their communities.

While the social membership remains free, for a nominal fee GetAssist business members may access networking and management tools that connect them to other enterprises, employees and customers. They may also access helpful features such as project management tools, job postings, online portfolios and targeted sales leads.

Private means private at GetAssist. Unlike the legacy platforms, it does not collect, sell or share any personal information. It only requires a valid email address and postal code to access its features. It also contains absolutely no advertising.

From its initial offices in Calgary, Edmonton, Mississauga, Scarborough, Vaughan and Winnipeg, GetAssist is scaling into all remaining Canadian markets, the United States and the UK by continuously building value into memberships while maintaining “grassroots inexpensive” pricing.
