A group of young Yucatecan entrepreneurs developed a mobile application called “Fixin” intended to help users with domestic repairs.
The software developer, Mauricio Lara Soberanis, said the platform seeks to empower mobile technology workers through an “app” that can be installed on phones that work as tools to link with new customers.
Led by the director of design, Brenda Martinez, and Jesus Del Campo, director of administration, the project will start on May 6 with 60 providers that were discharged in the application system, and who were trained to use it, and they delivered the documents that certify them as professionals.
However, the idea is that more and more workers join the platform. At this early stage, they expect to reach a standard of 200 providers including plumbers, electricians, masons, and gardeners, among others.
At a press conference, the developers said that they have promoted the project through the program called “Bottomers” so they can receive donations and contributions from people who want to do so.
He also said they expect support from the government of 70 thousand pesos to expand the service platform, training workshops for the workers concerned and to issue an electronic invoicing for customers using the application to contract services.
“The project idea is also based on the theme of social participation to boost the economy, of the sector in household maintenance, and start to spread throughout the country”, he added.
The application can be downloaded from Google Play which is using the Android system, operating on most phones from domestic service providers, as was found with a prior market study.
The project has already won a prize at the Startup Weekend that took place in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, in 2015 and recently was selected from 600 participants in Entrepreneur Challenge 2015 held in this state.
