Firm moves to tackle home repair, maintenanc­e difficulti­es


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,

Marketing and Corporate Communicat­ion, Alpha Mead Group, Olusesan Ogunyooye, stated that during the research and developmen­t process, the spectrum of challenges in the building repair value chain were summed up to security, convenienc­e, accountabi­lity and reliabilit­y.

He said the Call2Fix fix had been designed to resolve these issues around these challenges.
