Are you a maintenance technician who is tired of being on their feet all day, responding to “emergencies” and keeping a clean and well-stocked shop? Would you like to be able to use your Spanish-speaking skills daily to assist apartment residents with their minor maintenance and repair needs from the comfort of your own home?
HappyCo’s software enables Happy Force maintenance technicians to assist residents remotely via text, phone and video calls.
