HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- ServiceLive.com, a subsidiary of Sears Holdings, today reported reaching a monthly transaction record, completing more than 50,000 service orders in two consecutive months – April and May.
ServiceLive.com is the first true nationwide online marketplace for home services, connecting skilled service providers to businesses and consumers. From plumbing and painting, to IT help, ServiceLive's platform removes the headaches and hassles of getting services done at home.
Each year, nearly 130 million homes are in need of maintenance and one to two million homes are added to the housing inventory. Currently, the market is fragmented; no one company owns more than one percent.(1)
"With our newly designed platform, expanding national database of service providers, and iPhone app, I am confident that ServiceLive will continue to grow to meet the needs of the home services industry," said George Coll, president of ServiceLive.
