“At TiTask we offer different alternatives, both for students and for the general public. One of them is to carry out the task of picking, which turned out to be the favorite of young people, with 72%, that is, buying and assembling supermarket orders, without having to do the delivery route. We also have the option of driver or dealer, who occupies the second position, with 15%; by warehouse operator, with 14.2% and by shopper, with 13.8%, who is the one who buys and takes the purchase to the home of the final customer”, he maintains.
Also, to capture more interest in this flexible model, TiTask offers biweekly and even weekly payments on some of its accounts. Likewise, “we associate with partners that allow our taskers to access banking, loans and life insurance, as well as health insurance,” he says.
