Haven, an IU-funded developer of a mobile and Web application that helps homeowners maintain their property, launched its product Wednesday on Apple’s iTunes for iPhone users in the Indianapolis market.
The tool uses a personalized, intuitive reminder and tracking system that alerts users to potential home maintenance issues before they occur — such as changing an air filter and scheduling lawn or pool service. It also summons quick response for unexpected events such as water leaks or storm damage.
When upkeep is required, Haven retrieves instant pricing information, schedules appointments with pre-approved, licensed and insured contractors and allows payment within the app. It also provides users a comprehensive home snapshot and digitally organizes receipts and records that can aid in home resale.
In the fall, Haven completed a $1.03 million round of seed funding for product enhancement, employee growth and marketing efforts. Investors included the Innovate Indiana Fund, along with Elevate Ventures and 16 angel investors.
