Upkay helps clients find a heating engineer nearby, at the right moment

Boiler installation and servicing generates over 9 billion euros in revenues each year in France alone. Yet this industry is highly fragmented, and suffers from a lack of transparency for customers who have a hard time finding heating engineers. Furthermore, prices are often opaque and prohibitively high.

Upkay helps solve these problems by driving customers to heating engineers, thereby allowing them to focus on servicing and not marketing, and by ensuring that prices are transparent. Extra features also facilitate annual servicing and strengthen customer loyalty to their habitual provider.

Upkay uses the Cocorico Enterprise Edition marketplace solution and employs the following features:

  • Service catalogue management by brand, equipment type...
  • Location search to find the providers that will travel to your location
  • Annual reminder and quick booking feature to service boilers (for adapted equipment)
  • Rich communications tools (messaging, document management, transactional SMS)
  • Variable and fixed fees on providers and customers
  • Date and time based price variations to manage prices depending on the time or day of the booking
  • Escrows, automated bank transfers and dynamic refunds

Our services also covered the following fields:

  • Consultancy in payment gateway selection to manage recurring payments, escrowing and split payments
  • UI and UX design
