SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pro.com, the home services marketplace for pricing your home project and finding a Pro, today reports tremendous growth since its May 2014 launch. The company has priced over 100,000 home improvement projects, spanning 25% of US zip codes across the country, for a total of $250 million in home services. With warmer home improvement months fast approaching, Pro.com expects to see these numbers increase significantly, leading to more home service requests and jobs created on the platform across the nation.
“Customers from across the country have turned to Pro.com for jobs ranging from hanging a bathroom mirror to remodeling a million-dollar home,” said Matt Williams, founder and CEO of Pro.com. “Our focus every day is on helping customers price their home projects and finding them a Pro in minutes.”
Pro.com offers an end-to-end experience to both homeowners and home improvement professionals seeking a better way to accomplish home improvement projects. The company’s technology provides real-time price estimates for any home project – whether it’s painting a room or remodeling an entire kitchen - and matches the homeowner with a certified “Pro” in their local area. Pro matching is based on more than a dozen specific attributes including expertise, ratings and proximity to the customer. To ensure that only the best certified home service professionals are listed, Pro.com also collects verified customer ratings and reviews following the completion of every job.
In response to increased demand for home service requests, Pro.com today released a new mobile app designed to simplify the experience for its certified home service professionals. Providing an extension of the capabilities already available in its “Feedback Pro” app, the “Pro.com Jobs” app provides Pros with on-the-go access to current and potential job information from a single source. Available on iOS to all current Pros on the platform, features of the “Pro.com Jobs” app include:
- Instant access to inbound job requests for its certified home professionals to review and confirm availability immediately.
- Consolidation of all job information into a simple, accessible and manageable display, making it easier for certified Pros to deliver an excellent service experience.
- Real-time messaging that connects Pros with customers via web and mobile.
“Pro.com shares jobs directly with me that fit my background, availability and expertise, which gives me a huge leg up to grow my business even faster than I could do on my own,” said Dave Crompton, Owner of Monet Home Services. “I am mobile much of the time and with the Pro.com Jobs app, I now have all of this information accessible in the palm of my hand, making the management and completion of future jobs much easier.”
