Alpha Mead Facilities, a subsidiary of the Alpha Mead Group, has unveiled a building maintenance app, Call2Fix, to address the challenge of accessing quality maintenance and repair services.
Call2Fix is an on-demand mobile application “conceived to liberalise and democratise maintenance services in Africa,” said the Group Managing Director of Alpha Mead, Femi Akintunde, while briefing newsmen in Lagos.
He said, “Our goal for Call2Fix is simple. We just want to connect people and organisations in need of quality building repair services with trained and reliable artisans or material merchants closest to them from the comfort of their mobile devices.
“Call2Fix is a mobile app conceived to improve accessibility to quality building and maintenance services by empowering both the customer and the service providers in a manner that professionalism, transparency and accountability are greatly enhanced.
“Over the past 36 months, we have worked in the shoes of an average Nigerian business and individuals seeking quality repair services.
“Along the journey, we noted the pain points around searching for artisans, banking on their reliability, professionalism, raising the cost of repair materials, and the lack of choice in the artisan and materials.”
In his product presentation, demo Head,
