RedBeacon launches iPhone app, revolutionizes home services industry

Move over, Angie’s List

On that note, move over Craigslist, Angie’s List and any other list online. The overly saturated home services search industry is often overlooked because of a lack of innovation and the fact that thousands of Americans believe their website solves the problem of connecting homeowners and renters with quality home service providers like plumbers, HVAC repair people and the like. The truth is that most of the home services search industry is poorly designed, not well thought out, time consuming, and leaves consumers stuck where they started – unsure, burdened and overwhelmed.

Enter RedBeacon who today launched their iPhone app which is more than a fancified version of their website – from within the app, users can shoot video (or photo or voice memo) of the problem they are having or the project they need done and submit it immediately to the RedBeacon network of nearby home service providers that the company says they have not only checked license status, but they’ve interviewed and done a background check on, which is above and beyond the screening offered by competitors.

Sorry, but some random person’s review saying Joe Plumber is great isn’t good enough and RedBeacon knows that. Approved vendors get a score and the service is known for being one of the fastest to get quotes back to the homeowner. The above video outlines how the service works and it is a great tool for real estate professionals to share with their team and clients, and a perfect consumer-centric company for contractors to align with.
