In 2015 the company opened branches in the UK, Germany, Belgium and France and started partnerships in Italy, Spain and in Turkey.

At the beginning of 2016, Roamler launched Roamler Tech, the first Dutch company to apply the principles of crowd-sourcing to the professional home installations market, by using a crowd of registered independent professionals.

In April 2016 Roamler completed a 4.5 million euro investment,[5] co-founded by Endeit Capital, to expand its activities further.

System and SoftwareEdit

Roamler makes use of proprietary software for its front and backend activities.

The Roamler app[6] is free and available for both iOS and Android upon registration. In order to keep a fair balance between the offer and the demand of tasks, the company has introduced a white and hot spots system. Users who are located inside a hot spot need an invite code to be able to complete their registration and become active members.

Users are ranked according to experience points and levels. In order to be able to perform paid tasks, a user must reach level 2.

The app also contains an instant message platform, through which users can communicate directly with the company support department.
