Erifili Morfidis (BA 1993) and Charlotte Gummesson (BA 1995) had already built a successful contact centre business when they saw an opportunity in an entirely new industry – building management.
The Toronto entrepreneurs discovered that, despite all the high-tech tools available for property and maintenance managers, the digital revolution had largely overlooked the basic necessities of cleaning and maintaining buildings.
In late 2018, the duo launched iRestify, an all-in-one digital building maintenance platform and on-the-ground cleaning and maintenance service.
“Until now, property managers have not had any real innovative options to modernize the management of services in the building, so the introduction of our services has really been the first foray for them,” says Ms. Morfidis, the company’s co-founder and co-chief executive officer.
Many property management companies oversee dozens or even hundreds of buildings, often in different cities. iRestify provides the staff, as well as the platform, that gives clients real-time data on when cleaning and maintenance crews arrive on site, GPS tracking, before and after pictures of the work, as well as enterprise level reporting and analytics. The iRestify solution also enables property and maintenance managers to review cleaning and maintenance history, and track scheduling to help them better manage the cost per building.
