Finnish-based Hakema is the brain child of CEO and Co-founder, Ajay Garg, whose personal experience and everyday challenges surrounding setting appointments and remembering to keep them sparked the concept behind the website. Since its launch in 2011, Hakema provides an appointment booking solution for real estate and similar portals, making it virtually impossible to forget another appointment ever again.
When people look for a new home to buy or rent online, they find themselves booking numerous appointments with agents or sellers. Hakema provides a ‘booking button’ which enables potential buyers to set appointments with sellers anytime, while browsing through their listings.
Hakema helps save time for both sellers and buyers by avoiding missed appointments and keeping everyone organised and on time. Sellers simply set their availability and stop worrying about buyers not able to reach them. They can also analyse prospective buyers and their visits, right from the classified site. The button is very easy and fast to integrate by classified providers. Using the Hakema plug-n-play service, classified providers can increase value of their media and earn more revenue from the listings.
