Brings New Technology to the Commercial Real Estate Industry

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 31, 2015 /CNW/ -- breathes new technology and innovation into one of North America's oldest industries – commercial real estate. Property managers and realtors have the challenge of trying to find and vet vendors. ServiceGems brings new technology that allows users to benefit from improved process management.

ServiceGems removes the need to place endless and time consuming RFP calls instead users opt for an easier and more streamlined approach, which in the end saves large amounts of time. The process connects real estate developers, owners, and managers with vetted contractors. Rather than rely solely on word of mouth, consumers can now choose based on aggregated information such as past performance, pictures, reviews, licenses, insurance information and of course price.  With greater options and better insight users can now make an educated choice and garner better pricing in less time than traditional methods.

Brendan Huff Co-Founder of ServiceGems said, "We have designed our system to simplify building owners and property manager's jobs. No one likes searching the internet for hours trying to get quotes from contractors, only to end up hiring someone you think is a "professional" then finding out, they are far from it. We centralize a contractor's history in one easy to use snapshot, allowing our users to save valuable time. At ServiceGems our goal is to eliminate many of the question marks associated with hiring a contractor."

Since ServiceGems inception in 2012 they have grown rapidly across Canada and the United States. Now offering a staggering 1,000,000 licensed contractors providing a broad range of services from basement renovations to plumbers and handyman.
