“We depend on the men and women of the trades to maintain our life support systems: running water, heat, air conditioning, and power,” said Ara Mahdessian, co-founder and CEO of ServiceTitan. “Today, as both homeownership rates and time spent at home reach record highs, these essential service providers are facing rising demand from an increasingly tech-savvy homeowner. By providing contractors with the tools they need to deliver a great customer experience and grow their businesses with ease, ServiceTitan is enabling the hardworking men and women of the trades to reach the level of success they deserve.”
To help trade businesses navigate the pandemic, ServiceTitan partnered closely with its customers to develop a variety of features that enable technicians to provide homeowners with a truly contactless experience. In addition, ServiceTitan interviewed hundreds of customers to launch a playbook on how to adapt operations to succeed through COVID-19, along with an online community for contractors to share best practices with one another.
“ServiceTitan is powering a massive industry that has been underserved by technology for years,” said Chase Coleman, Partner and Founder, Tiger Global Management. “We admire the culture that Ara and Vahe have developed, and we are incredibly excited to partner with them as they build the operating system for residential and commercial field services businesses.”
