I had now settled well in Bangalore and my routine had become smooth. I used to get up on time and report to work at sharp 9.15am daily and would be back home by about 7.30pm. Since I had taken charge of the new position I took the onus in staying back at work on Saturdays and Sundays to get used to the processes and people around at my work area. Lunch and dinner were on time and I felt contended with what I had until one day when my new office friends planned to come in on the last weekend of the month.
I had about a fortnight to get my new house in shape for the weekend party. I had set up my house and was pretty happy dealing with the customers I had met by using Quikr services to buy most of the items I had in Bangalore house. What I realized now was that I had a great challenge up ahead for the month end party. I had to make the house look better and arrange a few things like a mini Fridge, a Bar, some crockery and also some décor items. I knew it was time to take help from Quikr again, but was skeptical because last time I had many calls at odd hours with quite a few fake calls for buying my stuff which I had put on sale in Mumbai.
I went to the Quikr site for help and a casual check and to my surprise, I saw that the new “Quikr Nxt. No Fikar. Chat Quikr.” function had been launched and my happiness knew no bounds. This is exactly what I had wanted and without hesitation I put up my requirements there and waited for the magic to happen. Since I was new in Bangalore office, I wanted to show my seniors that I was more focused on work and too many calls from Quikr ads were sure to give me trouble at my new work place. I welcomed the chat option known as Quikr Nxt for three simple reasons. I could ask for snaps from various angles if I was not satisfied with the ones put by the seller. I need not share my number at all with the seller till I had shortlisted him to deal with. Be it the desktop or the laptop, mobile site or the mobile app, I could use it anywhere I needed. Last but not the least I could save all the chat history till the time the transaction was actually executed so that no one could change the status/price etc of the product and the deal as a whole.
I put this feature in use keeping the above 3 reasons in mind and successfully bought all what I had wanted without getting disturbed in my office meetings or outside with total privacy on my number getting out to pranksters and ended up dealing with only serious buyers. Indeed Quikr Nxt was a revolution we all were waiting for..
