Media releases Baloise with majority stake in the tradespeople marketplace devis.ch
Basel, July 24, 2019. Baloise is continuing to develop its “Home” ecosystem and has become involved in the market place for indoor and outdoor tradesmen and cleaning services, devis.ch. The digital market place, which is already successful in French-speaking Switzerland, plans to expand its business to German-speaking Switzerland and will be implementing this plan together with MOVU. The investment in devis.ch follows Bubble Box and MOVU as Baloise’s third significant investment in the development of its “Home” ecosystem.

Within the scope of the strategic phase Simply Safe, Baloise is concentrating its investment and development focal points on strengthening and developing its service ecosystems. “The ‘Home’ ecosystem is a focus area for Baloise. We want to offer our customers simple services. With the majority stake in devis.ch, we have taken another step toward establishing Baloise as a service provider in the ‘House & Home’ network,” says Wolfgang Prasser, member of the Executive Committee at Baloise Switzerland.

Create quotes in just a few minutes

devis.ch is a digital marketplace for indoor and outdoor services with the goal of enabling platform users to have four quotes for tradesmen or cleaning services created in a short time with just a few clicks. The advantage is that service providers have already been checked by devis.ch to ensure their service quality and location close to the customer. The customer then only has to decide between quotes. Tradesmen enterprises benefit from the reach of the digital platform and the added visibility to the customer.

Now also available in German-speaking Switzerland

The offer previously only applied to French-speaking Switzerland. devis.ch aims to grow in German-speaking Switzerland with the platform Offerten.ch and has found the ideal partner in MOVU, Baloise’s digital relocation platform: “The services provided by devis.ch perfectly complement MOVU’s services. Together, we are expanding our range of offers with digital solutions related to home and living needs, making us Switzerland’s largest provider of these combined services,” says Laurent Decrue, founder and CEO of MOVU.

Sébastien Kügele, founder and CEO of devis.ch, is also delighted by the upcoming collaboration: “In the future, it will be even more important to be able to offer our customers usefully networked services that make their lives easier. devis.ch and MOVU are already doing this as independent companies, but together we will be even more efficient.”
