Carcility, a vehicle service company based out of Dubai, recently started up a new effort to provide vehicle service, repairs, and roadside assistance to consumers.
Anirudh Vallikkat, founder, Carcility, said: "Two years ago, while I was driving to the airport, I heard strange noises coming from my car every time I used the brakes. The next day, I took the car to a dealer and he recommended a general inspection, but his rates were very high and I was reluctant to pay that much for just the inspection. Although I was aware that individual workshops offer more affordable rates, I had never been to one and was worried about it. It was only after a friend suggested a local auto shop that I decided to visit it. I was impressed by their service quality and how quickly they were able to fix the issue. This got me thinking about how other car owners might have the same concerns I did regarding local workshops, and I thought about how great it would be to have a platform to direct people towards efficient and affordable providers with high quality service."
Carcility was registered in July 2017 and its beta launch was in March 2018. The self-funded startup Carcility has so far invested $300,000 into this venture and plans to raise about $1.2 million this year.
Vallikkat, a computer science engineer graduated with a degree in Computer Science from SRM University, Chennai and worked as a software engineer at HCL Technologies, the third largest IT company in India. Carcility offered Vallikkat a platform to combine his passion for cars and technology.
Disruption has proved to be the core of every startup which aims to ease consumer life-style and Vallikkat was compelled to start his project as he witnessed a huge vacuum in any portal giving spot information at a click.
