ISBX built and helped launch two on-demand app services: Pikkup and Soothe


Summer is coming. That means yard sales and vacations! ISBX recently completed two apps that can help you take advantage of both. Say hello to Pikkup and Soothe. These apps simplify the process of booking a mover and streamline scheduling a massage to make the most of your free time. We’ve illustrated the details of each app below.

Pikkup: on-demand moving and hauling company

What happens when you’re on the other side of town and find the PERFECT piece of furniture at a garage sale but have no way of transporting it yourself? Now you can call Pikkup!

Pikkup is a new, on-demand, peer-to-peer moving service that connects truck drivers with people who need to transport large (or lots of) parcels in Los Angeles. Use your iPhone to schedule a move using background-checked and insured drivers. The interactive calendar makes requesting an appointment easy! Match the size of your load with the best driver by taking a picture of your goods with the in-app camera feature. Get pricing estimates for each available vehicle and find the best truck for the job. Ease anxiety by utilizing the GPS feed which shows routes and ETAs.

CEO and Founder, Sam Baumgarten came up with the idea, “When I had to move my sister’s couch using only her Prius, I saw a huge gap in today’s on-demand service marketplace.” Baumgarten realized, “I could order an on-site massage in 30 minutes, have my dry-cleaning picked up and returned in a matter of hours and even get a private ride in minutes, but I couldn’t get my sofa from Malibu to Echo Park. Pikkup addresses these hardships head-on to alleviate them. It is 2015, after all.”

We agree. Speaking of ordering a massage, have you tried the recently improved Soothe app?

Soothe: on-demand massage company

With a few clicks on the Soothe app, you can schedule a house-call massage to arrive at your location in about an hour! Soothe therapists are all licensed, background-checked, and thoroughly vetted. They are available 7 days a week, 9am to midnight, INCLUDING HOLIDAYS! Prices are great, starting at just $99 for 60 minutes. Want a couples massage? They do that too! The app makes it easy to choose Deep Tissue, Swedish, or Sports massage. No need to worry about calling a spa, hoping for a slot, hunting for parking, and crossing your fingers for a good LMT. The Soothe app makes booking a massage completely stress-free by bring a highly skilled massage therapist to your doorstep.

CEO and Founder, Merlin Kauffman said, “As I began talking with massage therapists, they kept telling me the same thing over and over again, ‘The spa I’m working at is paying me very little.’ It turns out that spas that charge $120+ for massages are usually only paying $35 to their therapists. I decided to remove the spa from the situation and reverse the equation by empowering skilled massage therapists to earn extra income and make a better life for themselves. From this idea, I created Soothe, an online and mobile app that connects people who want to book same-day in-home massages with the best hand-picked massage therapists.”
