Jobber has received a $100 million Series D round of funding for its operations management software.
According to a press release issued by Jobber on Tuesday, the new capital will be used for research and development (R&D), sales and marketing, and new customer acquisition for the software used by home service businesses.
“While this is an important milestone for Jobber, what we care about most is the success of the small businesses we serve,” said Jobber CEO and Co-founder Sam Pillar in a statement. “We’re committed to doing everything we can to assist them in transforming the way they deliver services and run their businesses.”
Jobber Vice President of Payments and FinTech Laura Collinson told in an interview published in 2021 that these small businesses are finding increasing value in managing their workflows and cash flows through digital apps.
“We’ve seen a three to five-year acceleration in the adoption of digital tools across many of these sectors,” Collinson said at the time.
According to the release, the Jobber software assists these home service professionals in sending quotes, scheduling crews, dispatching jobs, invoicing customers, and accepting credit card payments.
“While we are proud of our progress thus far, the real opportunity lies ahead of us,” Jobber Chief Revenue Officer Shawn Cadeau said in a statement.
As the platform moves towards its next iteration, the focus will be on optimising trades with scheduling and seasonality tracking, which will help a lawn care business, for example, stay busy during the winter months when there isn’t a blade of grass to be cut, according to Jobber Payments and FinTech Lead Ryan Robertson in a January interview.
“We’re always focused on how we can reduce friction, the number of steps required, and eliminate complexity,” Robertson explained at the time. “That’s the recurring theme that runs through the core operating system, if you will, as well as the payments ecosystem that we’re constructing.”
