2015-09-15
SAN DIEGO, CA, HouseCall, the mobile platform for running home services companies, raises $6 million Series A led by August Capital.
Other investors include existing investor e.ventures, and Michael Beaudoin, former Co-CEO and Co-founder of HomeAdvisor. Since launching nationwide at the beginning of 2015, the HouseCall platform has been adopted in over 700 cities in the US and Canada.

'We equip our home services customers with state of the art mobile tools to run their entire operations from a smartphone,' said Ian Heidt, CEO of HouseCall. 'Our platform allows home services companies to grow their business by streamlining hours of time lost to paperwork, while also providing a delightful experience to their homeowner customers through the complimentary HouseCall consumer booking app.'

HouseCall is end-to-end operations software that incorporates the customer experience.

The HouseCall mobile platform strengthens the long-standing relationships that independent home services businesses have with their loyal customers. HouseCall was built with the customer relationship in mind to help drive repeat and referral business back to trusted independent home services companies. HouseCall digitally manages all operations processes, including providing estimates, scheduling appointments, dispatching service technicians, managing jobs, invoicing, processing credit cards and re-marketing, while connecting to the consumer experience to ensure a seamless end-to-end workflow.

With the new funding, HouseCall will expand its marketing, sales and customer service team to drive adoption of the mobile operations software platform.
'In the home services space, which is massive yet notoriously difficult to navigate, HouseCall stood out,' said Michael Beaudoin, former Co-CEO and Co-founder of HomeAdvisor. 'Having worked extensively with home services companies in the past, I think the HouseCall platform is well positioned to bridge the operational needs of home services companies with rapidly unfolding consumer expectations in the mobile era.'

'We are excited to welcome HouseCall to our portfolio,' said Eric Carlborg, General Partner at August Capital. 'The opportunity ahead of them is huge, their product is well loved by their customers, and the team has demonstrated they have what it takes to win.'
