Last year, as the world languished in their homes during the COVID pandemic, people stared at their bathrooms, backyards, and kitchens, and seemingly they all came to the same conclusion: This place desperately needs an upgrade.
Over a three-month period, Porch.com tracked more than 330 million US home improvement Google searches, a peak of more than 50 percent over 2019. And the next step became apparent when the phones for all kinds of home service professionals — gardeners, contractors, landscapers, HVAC experts, plumbers, electricians, carpet cleaners, and more — all started ringing off the hook.
Many of those companies began to expand to handle the increased demand for their services, leaving many of those owners handling far more logistics than they likely anticipated.
Home visit Pro was launched specifically to help small home service businesses grow organically without dropping anything. Their all-in-one platform is built with all the administrative, administrative, organizational and marketing needs of a small business in mind, streamlining operations so that one person can truly remain in charge of an entire team and all their jobs, even if they are mostly themselves working in the field.
Even if a business has never really been online, Housecall Pro helps these working professionals put their best foot forward with a simple, yet efficient, customer-friendly interface.
With Housecall Pro, customers get a clean, simple and attractive way to automatically book appointments 24/7/365, receive text updates when employees are on the road or finishing a job, and pay instantly with credit card or bank payments. The service will ask them to submit a quick assessment of the company and also keep them updated with automatic follow-up for necessary maintenance or other work so that they stay in touch with the company.
As for business owners, Housecall Pro eliminates the need for multiple apps by processing everything in one place and saving a lot of time. From scheduling tasks and shifts to centralizing task-specific details, the service can be your business hub for everything a manager and their employees need to get a job done. Home visit Pro keeps track of where each member of a team is located via GPS mapping, allows easy communication with the entire team and helps complete and pay for tasks electronically without the need for invoices and other physical paperwork.
Meanwhile, employees can view their individual schedules, get directions, get the latest information on their assignments, and stay in touch with managers, clients and everyone else needed to make a day run smoothly from job to job.
More than 20,000 small businesses have adopted the Housecall Pro methods, and many say it has undoubtedly changed their business for the better.
Housecall Pro even supports a custom suite of services tailored to nearly a dozen specific industries, with platforms built for businesses that focus on plumbing, electrical, pest control, appliance repair, crafts, home cleaning, and others.
