We look at the advantages of using Fixer below.

Easy access to valuable skills for small businesses

One of the most popular Fixer features is that it allows small businesses to hire professionals who offer practical and specific services.

These small businesses can access a massive roster of skilled professionals with a variety of skill sets, including:

• Admin managers

• Accountants
• Lawyers
• Barmen
• Restaurant staff
• Personal trainers
• Tradesmen

The list is endless.

You can reduce your overheads by only hiring the services you need for the exact amount of time you need them.

For example: if you need to run maintenance on equipment but can’t afford a permanent maintenance team, you can hire skilled professionals to fix the equipment through Fixer.

Either per hour, Per day, per week, or monthly.

Fixer lets you effectively run your small business like a multi-person operation without having permanent staff.
