The New World

It’s amazing to think about where your life is and where you life has been. We here at Swifto look at where the world has been and what can happen next. We’re at a unique convergence of technology and social interaction that we have not seen before. Social media, through smartphones and mobile devices, has allowed us to literally connect with anyone on the planet, at any time, at any place. It’s something that previous generations could not even comprehend. We have seen the rise of Facebook and Twitter and how people, who were once so personal and private, have become so used to sharing the most intimate details of their lives with complete strangers.

The concurrent rise of smartphones and social media has meant that people who were once averse to publicizing their thoughts and feelings are able to cultivate a large list of friends, many of whom they have never met, and to communicate to the world at large.

This is why we believe that Swifto has emerged at a perfect time. No longer are people bound by their traditional way of life in which they have to adjust their schedules around their problems. Swifto envisions a world in which problems do not deter your life but rather solving your last minute problems becomes so simple, literally a click of the button, that you do not need to worry about anything else. 

We see a bright future in this new space of instant problem solving. As more and more people are able to access the Internet from a device in their pockets the world has become infinitely smaller and more inter-connected. It allows a company like ours to locate people, but a few streets away, to help you with whatever problem you have. It doesn’t matter if you’re in need of your snow being shoveled or you need more diapers when you ran out we are here to solve the problems that pop up without you realizing it.

It’s these problems, that unforeseeable ones, that give us the most stress and cause the most havoc in our schedule. As the residents of New York City are discovering every day the solution to a stress free life is finally here. As we expand to other states and countries more and more people will experience a life without last minute problems. Eventually you won’t have to worry about the small stuff…just pull out your phone and let us handle everything.
