RPAIR, the pioneering new platform that helps customers easily find and compare watch and jewellery repairs whilst simultaneously helping jewellery and repair shops win and manage more jobs is delighted to be awarded the £156,364, as one of the winners of Innovate UK's Sustainable Innovation Fund (SIF).
The £134 million SIF Fund has supported 1200 companies across the UK as part of the latest dedicated COVID-19 innovation recovery fund that targets companies needing to keep their great ideas alive during the current pandemic, who in turn will contribute to revolutions across whole sectors.
With this award RPAIR will help to support the Jewellery industry in what has been one of the toughest years on record, by enabling large and small retailers alike to have access to the RPAIR marketplace platform that connects watch and jewellery repair shops with customers so they can compare smart quotes on maintenance and repair work, acting as a channel for communication to simplify the repair experience for all.
