Jobber and Thumbtack Integrate Platforms
EDMONTON, Alberta—February 3, 2022—Jobber, a home service management software provider, has formed a new partnership with Thumbtack, a home services platform. The Jobber and Thumbtack integration will enable professionals such as carpet cleaners, plumbers, HVAC technicians, and painters to find and book their ideal customers and then manage the job from start to finish with Jobber.
“For home service providers, finding customers that are a good fit for their services is a time-consuming hurdle to growing their business,” said Sam Pillar, CEO and co-founder of Jobber. “The streamlined workflow that our integration with Thumbtack provides will make it easier for Jobber customers to connect with local homeowners that are serious about booking jobs—allowing home service providers to spend less time looking for work, and more time on getting the job done and building long-lasting customer relationships.”
Jobber’s latest Home Service Economic Report found consumer spending on home service over the past 15 months has exceeded pre-pandemic levels. Furthermore, a recent survey from Thumbtack found that 40% of homeowners plan to invest more than $5,000 in their homes over the next year. With home buying and widespread supply and labor shortages at an all-time high, service pros are looking for high-intent customers and higher-value jobs, while homeowners are looking for the right pros to take care of their largest asset.
“Millions of people turn to Thumbtack to manage their largest investment—their home—fixing what’s broken and starting new projects to keep everything running smoothly,” said Jeff Grant, COO of Thumbtack. “By partnering with Jobber, we are meeting home professionals where they are and providing the right tools to be successful. Ultimately, this integration will help provide better service to homeowners and more value to pros.”
Home service professionals can take advantage of the new Jobber and Thumbtack partnership by connecting to the Thumbtack app through the Jobber app marketplace. Once connected, pros can connect with homeowners and instantly book jobs on Thumbtack. Those jobs will automatically show up in Jobber where pros can send quotes, schedule crews, invoice customers, and get paid.
