Edmonton’s Jobber announced today that it has raised a seed financing round led by Vancouver superangel Boris Wertz of W Media Ventures. Additional investors include Berlin’s Point Nine Capital and Vancouver tech entrepreneurs Vik Khanna and Pankaj Agarwal.
Jobber will use this funding to expand its team, aggressively develop additional features and functionality, and to continue improving the user experience.
Jobber allows field service businesses such as landscapers, painters and contract cleaners to easily manage their businesses from any web browser.
The product offers CRM, task and calendar management, job tracking, crew scheduling, automated quoting, invoicing, time tracking, QuickBooks integration and more.
“The move towards SaaS is inevitable, but until recently most field service businesses have been stuck using old desktop software or even pen and paper to manage their businesses,” said Christoph Janz, founder and Managing Partner of Point Nine Capital. “With Jobber, business owners are finally getting a better solution. We think Jobber has the potential to establish itself as the clear market leader in this sector and we’re very excited to be on board.”
Jobber was founded by Pillar and Forrest Zeisler in 2010 and was originally known as OctopusApp.
