Dentx, a South African-based startup has raised R1 million ($68,252) from E4E Africa founder- Frederik Gerrner and Bas Hochstenbach. The fund will be used to create a new data-driven vehicle platform.
Dentx is a digital platform that allows users to get competitive bids for vehicle body parts online. It also makes diverse quotes available to vehicle owners and saves them from being extorted by mechanics.
Dentx will use the fund to expand its business as well as to create a new data-driven vehicle-repair pricing platform. This new platform will change the way vehicle owners and insurance partners source for vehicle body parts.
Jonathan Asiamah, the company’s CEO noted that the platform is built to help customers fix their vehicles as they get better value for the money spent.
Dentx makes use of technology and a new approach to vehicle part sales to create a frictionless digital vehicle repair pipeline that will offer vehicle owners swift vehicular services.
The vehicle repair platform will expand its services to CapeTown, Port Elizabeth, Bloemfontein and Durban by the first quarter of 2020.
