Salvatore Di Bartolo Co-Founder at WorksApp

worksApp is an instrument that allows business people from every sector to interact with extraordinary simplicity and speed, it is different from any apparently “similar” product. With worksApp the solution is immediately available, all it takes is a ‘touch’.
Contacting professionals of any field requires a long process, first we must look for the professionals that we need, then we must contact them by mail or phone and then…. we must wait for answers before moving on to the next step.
worksApp skips all those steps, all we need to do is to send our request, from this moment on worksApp does all the rest, not only does it look for the professional that we need but it also offers us the opportunity to choose among different people having the same profession.
Combine the simplicity of whatsApp with a hint of social Facebook and the result will be worksApp ,a comunication tool for working people in every business sector available to every type of user of any age.
