SAN DIEGO, Calif. (December 09, 2014) – Today, HouseCall Pro announced the nationwide expansion of its smartphone app, available for free on iOS and Android. HouseCall Pro is a full-suite tool that enables service professionals to run their entire business from their smartphone and complimentary web portal. The app is free to use and supports professionals with all aspects of their daily workflow, including: job scheduling, customer database, invoicing and payment processing, technician dispatch, and much more. It is also fully integrated with access to the HouseCall consumer marketplace.
For early service professional customers, HouseCall Pro is disrupting the industry by offering a record low 1.99 percent credit card transaction-processing fee, one of the most competitive rates offered across the industry.
“We wanted to give mobile service professionals a modern way to run their business at zero cost,” said Ian Heidt, CEO and co-founder of HouseCall. “Plumbers, electricians, housekeepers and others can now reach new goals by streamlining and mobilizing their businesses with this all-in-one tool. Instead of using pen and paper or antiquated software, HouseCall Pro makes scheduling, dispatching, billing and invoicing a breeze.”
Since first 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.
From inception, 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.
“Everyone wants to grow their business and our mission is to accelerate that. Before, service pros were either stitching together multiple siloed products that weren’t designed to operate together, or reverting back to the laborious method of pen, paper, and over flowing filing cabinets,” said Co-founder Roland Ligtenberg. “Now, they’re able to run their entire business in one place.”
As a complete solution for all professional services verticals, HouseCall Pro is quickly gaining the attention of on-the-go business owners as the easiest and most effective way to run their business. HouseCall Pro is free and available now to download in the App Store for iOS and Android devices.
