Website of the day: Mr Sykes
It’s Friday, thank goodness. And, to be brutally honest, we don’t really feel like doing too much today. We quite fancy kicking back and letting somebody else do some of the work. Wouldn't that be nice?
Well, meet mr-sykes.com. He’s a most useful fellow.
The site describes itself as a “modern concierge” and describes what it does as a bit like “phoning Google for help”.
That means that busy Londoners (and visitors from elsewhere) can call up and get a team of specialists to set up a service that takes a lot of the legwork out of running a busy life.
They use apps, online services and also a more personal one-to-one approach to take the pressure off people who simply don’t have the time to get things done.
With a specialism in events and entertaining, this is something that busy city types and small businesses might find most useful.
