In its seed funding stage, it’s going to be interesting to see how well this app does. Why? Because it’s employing a model that can be duplicated to fit other industries.
It’s an app that handles scheduling and payments, but also acts as matchmaker, letting customers choose trainers that match their criteria. The article states that because FYT is a platform with an already built-in infrastructure, the company has already expanded to 300 cities in 10 states.
Let’s apply this model to another industry. How about an app called Find Your Chiro? The app would vett potential chiropractors and then create a directory which lists different techniques, amenities, equipment, prices, and insurance plus other criteria as dictated by industry experts. Customers would be able to choose the right chiropractor faster. The appointment and payment transaction would be handled before the customer walks in the door. Chiropractors would save time and money on billing and appointment expenses.
Can you think of another industry to apply this model to? The possibilities are endless. Share your thoughts.
