Tasks that used to seem traditional – along with the remarkable advancement of technology, have now completely transformed – bringing increasing convenience to our lives – ushering in the era of Housekeeping 4.0. Let’s join Goong to discover how developers have incorporated digital mapping into household assistant applications

In the context of digitalization becoming an irreversible trend across all aspects of life, we are increasingly benefiting from the conveniences brought by the digital transformation. Prominently, this can be seen in ride-hailing apps, technology-driven delivery services, technology-assisted housekeeping, and more. In this article, let’s explore a rather traditional service industry that now adorns itself with a completely new look – the housekeeping service – through the household assistant app, affectionately known as Housekeeping 4.0

How has technology impacted the housekeeping profession?

Housekeeping has been a profession for a long time, evolving alongside human civilization and social stratification. Once considered lowly, it has now transformed into a service industry through the impact of modernization, altering the status of household assistants. Many service providers in this field have transitioned from traditional to entirely new methods, creating smart household assistant applications.

These entities establish an application platform that connects service providers with potential customers. Users can request services through the app, and the assigned assistant can begin their tasks upon receiving the information. This entire process is managed through the technology application, providing flexibility for both the assistants and customers.

With just a few taps, customers can promptly schedule household tasks according to their needs. Similarly, the assistants can easily find suitable jobs with a simple touch – offering unparalleled convenience for both parties.

The Map API is integrated to identify addresses within the application

Returning to the main topic, with these application platforms, what purpose will they use the API maps for? And how will Goong be integrated into the process of that application?

In the past, traditional household assistants were typically assigned to one household. However, with household assistant applications, assistants can now have flexible schedules and work at multiple households, rather than being tied to a single location. As a result, the work location is quite flexible. This is why it’s crucial to determine whether the job location is convenient for the assistants to commute.

To solve this issue, developers will integrate the maps API into their application platform. This means that when a customer places a job request through the app and enters the address information, the system will automatically determine the job location and then send the request to the most suitable assistant. The Map API will help in pinpointing the location, calculating the closest assistant, and ensuring timely arrival at the job location. Assistants won’t need to take an extra step to look up maps from external apps.

So, what are the main APIs used here?

The Autocomplete feature will help you quickly and accurately select addresses from intelligent search suggestions; with just 6-8 characters, precise address suggestions can be provided. The address database is diverse and regularly updated.

Goong’s Distance Matrix API helps to zone areas and select the most suitable assistant for completing tasks based on distance or travel time to the job location. For assistants handling multiple tasks consecutively, routes and convenient travel paths can be organized.

Additionally, Goong’s API is a tool for real-time efficiency monitoring, allowing businesses to manage and supervise the location of assistants, track their movement direction, and working hours. This aids in making precise decisions in task allocation and provides solutions to enhance service quality for customers.
