Our mission: Easy, fair and hassle-free
No one wants to spend time reviewing contractual terms, monitoring bills, and listening to elevator music while on hold. That’s what we’ll do for you. We’ll make sure you get a fair deal and more peace of mind.
We start with one simple promise: To help people spend time on the things that really matter. We believe managing everyday life should be easy. That’s why we’re working towards building one platform to manage everyday services, from electricity to insurance. We refuse to spend time on multiple sites, remembering passwords, or unsubscribing from newsletters. We believe there are better things to spend time on, like page turners, karaoke road trips, Sunday morning lie-ins, and skipping stones. We refuse to accept unnecessary costs and hidden fees. We demand transparency from industries known for making terms and conditions difficult to understand. We will be responsible for negotiating the best terms and reading the small print. We make it easy for customers to leave us at any time. We believe they will want to stay. We believe in conversations, not corporate or legal jargon. We believe the world is confusing and cluttered enough. We champion simplicity, integrity and honesty. We embrace technology because it helps make life easier. We believe nothing takes the place of a human voice. We believe companies should think more about people than profit.
