In the process of launching Lessfuss, a personal assistant service

I am working with a group of people to launch a new service called Lessfuss. Lessfuss is a personal assistant service which is aimed at helping people save time, while getting the best possible advice doing so. There is a lot more info on our How it works page, including what the service aims to help people with, and how it will all work.

 

We have been working on taking the tool to implementation for about 2 months now, and I am starting to document how we are doing it (from the tools we use to how we are solving problems that we encounter in getting going), on our blog

 

I would love to hear questions and thoughts from people, and if there is anything you would like to know about how we are getting going (or if you have any suggestions).

 

You can follow us on twitter: @lessfuss

Our main website is http://lessfuss.co.za

Our blog is hosted on tumblr at http://blog.lessfuss.co.za

Michael: I am going to blog about it soon. Essentially we are using python/Django (http://www.djangoproject.com/) hosted on ep.io (http://www.ep.io/). I am also building out reusable components and releasing them as OSS as makes sense (e.g. https://github.com/bradwhittington/django-templated-email / https://github.com/bradwhittington/python-postageapp)

Very nice. This sounds like something I would use myself. Nice website layout and design. As a programmer I was wondering if you would care to divulge some of the technical aspects? Or will that also be covered on your blog?

Baby steps :) We have elements of a concierge service, and elements of a full time personal assistant. We have a few different ideas of where we want to go with our platform, but rather focus on an iterate, improve and expand approach to where we end up, than have an exact milestone.

 

Our primary focus initially is providing a digital interface to people who can save you phone calls, and tasks which are disruptive to busy people. As we refine our processes and facilities we will specialise our product offering to the niches we grow good at doing.

Hello Bradley,

 

Do you envision growing this into a full-blown on-line concierge service?

Help spread the word!
