Software solution company offering Calgary-based service businesses exclusive meet-ups to provide tips for business growth

Jobber, an Alberta-based company that boasts an international client base, has recognized Calgary’s booming entrepreneurial landscape and thriving start-up sector as a leader in the Canadian market. To support small business growth in Calgary, it is hosting three meet-up events next week to bring industry leaders together to discuss timely topics such as where to spend limited advertising dollars, how to strategically expand a business and how to turn social media followers into paying customers. The company is also launching a series of interactive pop-up events on April 11 and 12 to provide software trials, so business owners can see first-hand how Jobber can work for their business.

Since 2011, Jobber, has been offering entrepreneurs and small business owners a unique cloud-based software solution that streamlines entrepreneurs’ workloads, providing them with more time to focus on their business growth. Jobber software helps their clients quote, schedule, invoice, and get paid—faster.

“Jobber is a humble and supportive company that really wants other entrepreneurs and small business owners to succeed,” said Sam Pillar, CEO of Jobber. “Small businesses are critical to economic growth in North America, and we will continue to support entrepreneurs through our software and meet-ups like these to deliver on our mission to work hard for our customers every day.”

Recently, more than 1500 Jobber users, found across Canada and the United States, were surveyed on the effectiveness of the software:

  • Users report that this software saves them an average of 6.8 hours a week, helping them to run a better service business.
  • 88 per cent of users says that Jobber makes scheduling easier and it saves them time in their day.
  • 73 per cent says it helps them keep their team better connected.
  • Users revealed that average wait times for online payments were reduced to an average of 7.4 days.

Jobber’s business software combines several programs, necessary in the running of a small business to help manage teams, clients, jobs and the overall business, into one platform. Jobber can be utilized for all types of industries, such as: plumbing, painting, lawn care, landscaping, HVACR, mechanical, repair, contracting, renovation and cleaning services industries.

“We recognized that there was far too much time being spent on the administrative side of business, which took away from individual’s ability to run the business and add to their bottom line,” continued Pillar. “We created Jobber to make a difference to owners as a one-stop solution.” 2

Jobber has been recognized internationally as offering one of the top-ranked field service software on the market. Jobber is the recipient of theGartner FrontRunners Leader Award for value and capability, finishing ahead of over 400 software products for field service businesses, and the 2017 GetApp Category Leader in an independent review of the top 25 cloud-based field service software.

The three meet-ups, that will take place in Calgary on March 20, 21 and 22, will provide specialized tips and advice for business owners on how to expand their business and how Jobber can help them reach their goals. Several service business owners will be present at each event to discuss Jobber’s impact on their daily operations and how the software solution has helped them vastly improve their business.
