SAN DIEGO (February 23, 2015) – HouseCall Pro introduces additional features to their already comprehensive tool for service professionals. HouseCall Pro is a low-cost, full-suite tool that enables service professionals to run their entire business from a smartphone and complimentary web portal. Since January of 2015 HouseCall Pro has grown its customer base from one city to 257 cities nationwide. The app supports professionals with all aspects of their daily workflow. The latest additions to the HouseCall Pro software include: integration with QuickBooks Online, recurring job set-up from the web, a dynamic employee web scheduler and the ability to add company tax rate to job details.
On average 95 percent of service professionals and small businesses utilize QuickBooks for accounting needs. The integration of QuickBooks Online into HouseCall Pro includes QuickBooks’ customer import, and automated job and expense reporting. This addition allows service professionals to save time and become more efficient in their business operations.
“We want to offer features that allow a service professional to grow their business and save time. We listened to our customers and put our heads together to come up with resources that will take their business to the next level,” said Ian Heidt, CEO and co-founder of HouseCall. “Since launching we have witnessed our users achieve great success. We have noticed that our software is not only effective for home service professionals, but really any entrepreneur or small business that is ready to take their business operations to the next step.”
In addition to the QuickBooks integration, HouseCall Pro’s new features give service professionals greater insight into day-to-day business operations. The dynamic web scheduler now allows administrators to see full-spectrum employee schedules with custom time slot views for optimized technician time management. The ability to set up recurring service appointments from HouseCall Pro’s complimentary web portal will make job scheduling easier and significantly reduce customer drop-off rates. Furthermore, service professionals can provide customers with comprehensive invoices and receipts that include company tax rate with job details.
Since launching its services in San Diego in early 2014, HouseCall Pro has quickly positioned itself as the premier home services platform connecting local, trusted service professionals with home owners and renters. HouseCall Pro is lowering the barrier to what would otherwise be a complex technology adoption; simplifying high-tech tools to help small businesses upgrade their operations and better compete in a rapidly evolving marketplace.
HouseCall Pro users have completed thousands of home maintenance jobs. Using this all-encompassing tool, service professionals, on average, have doubled their business. Additionally, they’ve been able to easily retain existing clients and acquire new clients through the award-winning HouseCall consumer marketplace.
“Our software, on average, saves professionals 15 to 20 hours a week on administrative and process intensive tasks. We are on a mission to level the playing field for small businesses and to provide them with top quality business tools,” said Co-founder Roland Ligtenberg.
As an all-in-one tool for service professionals, HouseCall Pro will continue to listen to users and add on features that will help them run successful businesses. HouseCall Pro is offered at a low, monthly cost and is available to download in the App Store for iOS and Android devices.
