Dallas is home to Fixd Repair, a new home warranty solution for Texas that has announced a one million dollar seed investment in order to launch. According to PR Newswire the financing will allow Fixd to launch their new solution and continue their disruption of the $400 billion home service industry.
Setting Fixd apart is their use of technology to streamline their services, which not only helps to save consumers money, but also time and frustration. The seed financing is coming from a large warranty provider and with a projected Summer 2016 release, first in the Dallas/Fort Worth region followed by Austin, Houston, and San Antonio – there is ample opportunity for growth.
Fixd is the brainchild of a collective of industry experts that understand the depth of dissatisfaction when it comes to customer’s experiences with the legacy providers. The underlying goal is to use technology to make the entire experience better, using state-of-the-art mobile apps and web design that will be available across devices.
Along with making it easier to interact with the company, Fixd has simplified the policy terms and conditions, and reduced the exclusions that frustrate customers by their limitations on claims. With payments and schedules done through either the mobile or web apps, the experience for the homeowner will be much simpler and less demanding.
In preparation for its launch, Fixd is now working with more than 150 realtors that will help support the new warranty company by offering their products to new home buyers in the regions. Realtors also have experienced frustration with the legacy carriers, either first-hand or through their clients experiences. There is little that Fixd does not cover, including HVAC, electrical, appliance repair, pool and spa repair, and plumbing services, to homeowners who do not sign up for their home warranty services. For those who are enrolled in the home warranty service they receive discounts and free services as per their agreement.
