Overview

The innovators behind Hinged wanted to make life easier for homeowners everywhere. Our home is often our biggest investment, yet it doesn’t come with an instruction manual, and it takes considerable time, effort and expertise to keep up with ongoing maintenance and improvements. Finding skilled, trustworthy home service professionals can be a challenge, and the makers of Hinged decided there should be an app for that.

  • Homeowners can manage and schedule home repairs and maintenance through the Hinged app
  • The app connects users with a large database of fully-vetted, local home service professionals
  • The app also tracks and analyzes spending, enables communication with neighbors and can create a customized maintenance plan, complete with service notifications

The idea

The innovators behind Hinged wanted to build a cloud-based home-operations control system. This system would easily connect homeowners with first-rate, vetted home service professionals – a sort of virtual property manager that would oversee every possible need.
