Klaus Gapp, Yalwa's CEO and founder of askalo, sees this new project as the perfect union of innovation, high quality content and efficiency:
[i]“We are passionate about classified ads and believe in their potential to empower people in their daily lives. We have successfully launched Locanto, one of the biggest classifieds platforms worldwide. More than 10 years of experience in this field guarantee that both askalo users and partners are in good hands.“[/i]
askalo is based on the conviction that simplifying the search process is possible, even when it comes to some of the biggest changes in life. With askalo, finding a fitting job, getting the car of your dreams or looking for a new home becomes quick and easy.
To that end, askalo is using a search algorithm that automatically matches the search queries with the best fitting ads. This ensures that the tailored information is presented in the best possible way. In addition, several filtering options refine the search criteria and provide even more precise results. Clicking on an ad redirects the user to the website where it was originally published. Thereby, askalo also represents a valuable marketing channel for its partners.
askalo is now available for free in a desktop version and optimized for mobile as a Progressive Web App (PWA).
