There are a lot of businesses that utilize mobile workers these days. Normally deskbound workers have become mobile workers as companies mobilize their workforces and, often, save on property costs.
In this field, Jobber, has now secured a $8 million CAD Series A round of financing led by OMERS Ventures, with participation from existing investors, Version One Ventures and Point Nine Capital.
Professional home and mobile service businesses have often relied on the desktop and even pen and paper, but it’s massively inefficient. Jobber provides mobile apps, scheduling tools, online invoicing, and simple customer management tools for these companies.
Since it started in 2011, over three and a half million customers have have used it. The company claims it’s process over over $1 billion in invoices.
In Jobber’s segment, the biggest competition is probably pen and paper. Other players include mHelpDesk, HouseCall Pro, Breezeworks and vWorkApp. In the enterprise segment there are larger, established players like ServiceMax and Bella Solutions.
