Key Challenge:

TrustMark is a not for profit organisation established by the Government to enable people to find good, reliable tradespeople and to educate the public on the best way of identifying and instructing trades to carry out work on their homes. They wanted to create a multi-faceted app to guide a user through the complete process of getting an accurate quote from any tradesperson.

We developed an app that enabled a user to generate an instant record of their conversation, prompting them to ask specific questions - including those that we are sometimes nervous of asking - and incorporating text notes, photos and audio recordings.

We included tips and advice at every stage to keep the user informed of their consumer rights.

On conclusion of the conversation, the app emails a

copy of the conversation direct to the tradesperson. It helps the tradesperson with the information and detail they need when putting their quote in writing, but it can also be helpful in the event of a dispute arising further down the line.

The app maintains copies of all previous conversations for all repair, maintenance and improvement jobs.

So a homeowner can manage a number of different

tradespeople, while keeping all the details in one, easily accessible place - in this case, on a smartphone or tablet.

We co-ordinated the final look and feel of the app with TrustMark‘s brand agency and the app is now in use by more than 4,000 users across the UK. Watch the video above to hear Liz Male, chief executive of TrustMark talk about the TrustMark app.
