Plentific - a proptech startup that operates a ‘find a professional’ service - has secured £2m in funding.
The service, which lists 75,000 professionals from surveyors to plumbers and is linked with Zoopla, has secured its latest funding from a number of start-up sources including Property Innovation Labs.
Plentific says it has ambitions to develop a platform that will streamline what it believes is a £235 billion home improvement sector across Europe, and the new investment will be used to accelerate the development of additional features as well as to increase brand awareness.
For almost exactly a year Zoopla, Primelocation and the Planning Portal have carried the Find A Pro facility linked from their websites.
“We are driven by making home improvements better value by removing the hassle of back-and-forth phone calls, protecting consumers identity, scheduling, sourcing quotes and payments, so people can focus on getting the work done” claims Cem Savas, co-founder of Plentific.
