People in and around Regina are able to find businesses easier with a new app developed here in the Queen City.
Fix it up allows customers to receive quotes from several companies for different services they request, allowing the customer to narrow their search to the one they want.
President Brad Fekula said the app has over 160 different services for people.
“I like to describe it as an ‘Amazon for services,’ so if you’re looking for a plumber, an electrician, a new car, a new home, insurance, basically it’s a place to go and put in all of your information and it shoots out to all local companies, and they get back to you with quotes.”
Fekula said the app allows rural Saskatchewan to have access to services they may have thought only existed in the city.
“The nice thing when companies sign up on Fix it up is they can set their parameters for how far they want to service,” Fekula said. “Everything’s geo-tagged, so it’s based on your mobile device, where you are, so if the service is provided in your area, businesses can obviously go out there and service certain rural areas.”
Josh Miller, who recently had a deep run on Masterchef Canada and now owns and operates his own catering company Bearded Prairie chef, says this app is something he is interested in as a business owner.
“I think that there’s a ton of different aspects of it, that it can find me as a caterer or even just things that I may need, being able to search it on the app and be able to find it at one place, an easy place, is something that can benefit me and save me time.”
While the app is not yet available on the app store, it is available through their website.
