DEFINING APPROVED

Why you use Approved Service Providers

Finding suitable Service Providers (plumbers, electricians, panelbeaters, towing services, workshops etc) on the Internet at the moment can be a bit of a lottery at best. How must the user possibly decide who would be the best and most reliable Provider to use, as there are just so many options available from a number of online directories and Google listings?

To make the process easier and more meaningful is exactly why we at Assist247 place so much emphasis on only using 'Approved' Service Providers wherever possible.

Approved Service Providers are Service Providers that are linked to some recognised corporate group or association, like an insurance company or trade association, that somehow vets its members and are able to monitor the work ethics, qualifications and reputability of the members. More importantly our website has been specially developed to allow the User to search for Providers linked to any and all of their Approval Groups.

Examples are plentiful, and all the User has to is use the Keyword Search to select a service (starting with 3 letters of the service and refining from there), and click on GO. The website will then take the User to a webpage listing all the available areas for selected Service, where the User can then either select an area to see all the Providers in that area, or further refine the search to only see Providers that are linked to a specific Approval Group.

So for instance the User can search for:

Electricians approved by Assist247 Accredited, BEE, Avalon Group, ECA(SA), ECA, See more ...

Plumbers approved by Assist247 Accredited, BEE, PIRB, IOPSA, NHBRC, Santam, Assist247, See more ...

Appliance Repairs approved by Assist247 Accredited, BEE, Mutual & Federal, Sharp, Bauer, See more ...

Workshops approved by Assist247 Accredited, RMI, MIWA, Toyota, Ford, See more ...

Locksmiths approved by Assist247 Accredited, PSIRA, Locksmith Ass of SA, BEE, SIRA, See more ...

From the above it will also be clear that we at Assist247 also perform our own detailed inspections and accreditations of certain categories of Service Providers, and link them to our own ratings called ACE Ratings.

ACE Ratings are the most detailed ratings of Service Providers available in South Africa today, that are performed via physical audits of their business premises by our own inspectors, and are repeated at least once annually. The results of these audits are then linked to a star rating for each Service Provider, which in turn is linked to their services listed on the Assist247 website. Read more about ACE Ratings...

As a result of these ACE Ratings we are so confident that our ACE Rated Service Providers will perform satisfactorily and provide the User with decent and proper service, that we are prepared to guarantee their services providing we get notified in advance of the intention to use them.
