FactoryFix is making it easier for companies of all sizes to automate.They are changing the way companies service, program, and maintain automation systems. It is a two-sided marketplace, hence their mission is to bring value to both industrial companies and the companies/service providers that specialize in industrial services.
Industrial companies need FactoryFix to stay productive and save on the costs incurred with searching for and vetting key vendors they need to stay productive. FactoryFix allows these companies to post a project or service need, and almost immediately receive up to 5 quotes from local Experts that specialize in the type of work they need done.
Service providers use FactoryFix to meet new customers. They receive leads from local industrial companies for projects that fit their capabilities. If they wish to send that customer a quote, the service provider pays FactoryFix an introduction fee. If not, they simply pass and wait for the next project.
