Supplier Diversity Services
NOTE: The Minority Contractor Network is now Supplier Diversity Services (SDS).
ServiceChannel and Fixxbook are committed to enhancing business opportunities for diverse contractors / suppliers within the repair and maintenance community. We do this by providing tools and services to help facilities managers meet the objectives of their respective Supplier Diversity Programs. In addition, we help contractors who qualify get certified, verified and identified as diverse suppliers within the Fixxbook community.
Facilities clients looking for diverse suppliers in Fixxbook can easily find them via badging that indicates a contractor has been verified as one of the following:
- Minority-and-Women-Owned Enterprises(M/WBEs)
- Veteran and Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises (V/DVBEs)
- Small Business Enterprises (SBEs)
- Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs)
- Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and/or Transgender Business Enterprises (LGBTBE)
Facilities and large, national contracting companies can also utilize SDS to:

What Fixxxbook does:
Fixxbook is a contractor sourcing tool for multi-location retailers and restaurant brands. Fixxbook’s contractor database presents information and credentials about commercial repair and maintenance contractors that clients can search and then evaluate for new business opportunities.
What Fixxbook does NOT do:
