SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Centriq Technology, Inc. has earned the prestigious Platinum Award in the new Game Changer category from the National Association of Home Builders in last week's 2016 Best in American Living™ Awards.
"We congratulate Centriq for winning the BALA Platinum Game Changer award, which recognizes innovative ideas in home building," said Jerry Howard, CEO of the National Association of Home Builders. "Centriq has demonstrated a unique solution that appeals to today's home buyers and delivers on modern expectations."
Centriq's home management platform creates a personalized, digital user manual for each home. It connects homeowners to the wealth of manufacturers' support materials for their appliances, building systems and electronics. With just a single photo of the product label, Centriq provides:
- User manuals
- Maintenance schedules
- Troubleshooting guides
- Spec sheets
- Parts and supplies for maintenance and repair
- "How to" videos from the manufacturer and other experts
In addition, the builder or seller can add other home-specific information, including things like receipts, paint colors, the location of pipes and wiring, documents like warranties or inspection reports, and contact information for service providers or subcontractors who have worked on the home.
According to San Francisco Realtor Payton Stiewe, of Pacific Union/Christie's, "When you purchase a new home, you know very little about it. Before Centriq, there was never an easy way to transfer knowledge from the builder or seller to the buyer. Now, we snap a few photos and our clients have everything they need to run their home at their fingertips when they move in."
Users access this information through an app on their smartphone or tablet, so they always have it handy when they need it, making home management, repair and maintenance easier and less costly.
"The Platinum Award is an incredible honor," said Shubber Ali, co-Founder of Centriq. "From day one, our mission has been to radically simplify the lives of homeowners, and we're just getting started. It's terrific to see the builder community respond to Centriq this way."
Ali envisions a day when every house that is sold comes with Centriq. "A house is the most expensive and complex thing most of us will ever purchase. Yet I get more support when I buy a new toaster. We're changing that."
