Housecall, a New App for iOS that Connects Users with Trusted Home Service Professionals, Launches in San Diego
SAN DIEGO, CA (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
HouseCall, the app for your house, announced the launch of its services in San Diego today, with more markets coming soon. HouseCall takes the hassle out of home maintenance by connecting users to trusted neighborhood service professionals (Pros) at the push of a button. Homeowners can order everything from an electrician, emergency plumber to tech geek support. This video shows just how easy HouseCall makes it.
HouseCall identifies and then curates independent service Pros in a homeowners neighborhood and makes them easy to find, so they dont have to. No more spending hours reading online reviews, asking for recommendations and then negotiating prices. With HouseCall users select the service they need, view picture profiles and ratings of available Pros in their area, and the fixed-price they charge. HouseCall gives homeowners a seamless way to book and pay for both scheduled, and on-demand, home improvement help from trusted Pros.
We built HouseCall because we had the same problem that every homeowner has – its tough to find good, reliable, local help, said Ian Heidt, CEO and co-founder of HouseCall. HouseCall puts reviews and prices in one spot and users are kept up-to-date on the status of a job from start to finish. We are bringing ease and transparency to the world of local home services.”
In just a few easy steps, homeowners can order the following services: Audio & TV, Carpet Cleaning, Electrical, Handyman, Landscaping, Maid Service, Painting, Plumbing, Security System Consultation and Install, Smart Home Setup, Tech Help, Windows & Exterior and Holiday/Seasonal Tasks (hanging Christmas lights). HouseCall is constantly adding new services and taking user suggestions for services theyd like to see.
1) Download HouseCall in the App Store on their iPhone.
2) View the profile, job details, and prices of nearby local Pros.
3) Schedule service or get on-demand help.
4) When a Pro is en-route, users will see them on a map. Once the job is completed to the users satisfaction, payment is processed automatically with the credit card they have on file. There is no need to tip.
5) Wrap it up with a rating of the service. Ratings can only be done by people who have actually used a service Pro to ensure they are fair.
There are also many benefits to Pros who use the app. Most importantly, HouseCall makes it easier for Pros to find additional work by connecting them to a marketplace of homeowners and jobs. Pros see nearby service requests and can also get local work during their downtime. It also helps them manage their workflow with easy-to-use scheduling tools, helps them form the connection with new and returning clients, and provides automatic payment and streamlined digital invoices for every job.
“The Pros version of HouseCall allows home service professionals to book more jobs by giving them the mobile tools to do so, said Roland Ligtenberg, co-founder of HouseCall. We bring real-time opportunities to our Pros, organize schedules, generate invoices, and process payments so that they can focus on completing jobs and making HouseCall users happy.”
HouseCall was founded by a team of mobile technology innovators who simply wanted a better way to maintain their homes. Prior to founding HouseCall Ian Heidt, Adam Perry-Pelletier, Chris Zwickilton, Roland Ligtenberg, and Reza Olfat pioneered smartphone technologies together as a team at Qualcomm. They also helped found the companys experimental division, Qualcomm Labs, an incubator focused on leading innovation in new wireless product development and developed the groundbreaking Gimbal platform.
HouseCall is funded by a global venture capital group, e.ventures, who were initial investors in companies such as Angies List and Groupon. Their advisors include the San Diego general manager of Uber and former general manager of new products at Service Magic (now HomeAdvisor). HouseCall is also a member of EvoNexus, San Diegos only community-supported, fully pro-bono technology incubator.
