Features of this utility app
The App will assist you whether you are facing an emergency situation or if you just need some maintenance done. EASA already has Home Assist a 24 hour helpline service providing urgent assistance for emergency household repairs that could result in further damage if they’re not attended to immediately. Home Assist offers a range of emergency household repair services including electrical, plumbing, locksmith or appliances supported by EASA’s vast supplier network, claims management processes and call centre infrastructure. It may also refer to a situation where a client has no access to essential services such as electricity, hot water or sanitary use.
Thus this app is in line with EASA’s strategy to have a more digital approach and way of operating in order to enhance the speed and efficiency of assistance services provided to all South Africans.
The Homio app, available on mobile phones and via a website, was originally launched to offer plumbing, electricity, painting and flooring services to consumers in Europe. As this global technology is brought to South Africa, all suppliers will undergo an audit and will be certified before being added to the platform so that the user has confidence and feels secure in using the Homio app that provides a cheaper and faster service to customers with the added guarantee of good quality.
You can choose from a wide selection of providers to make an informed decision and they are also able to select the exact time they would like the service to take place. Soon this app is incorporating emergency services into the app and web platform.
