Housecall Pro, the leading software platform for Home Service Professionals that help run their entire business from scheduling, invoicing, payments, sales, marketing, operations, and more, is partnering with Gusto, the people platform that helps small businesses take care of their teams with full-service payroll, health insurance, 401(k)s, compliance, expert HR.

“When we talk to our customers, one of the biggest challenges they face is paying their employees,” says Roland Ligtenberg, co-founder of Housecall Pro. “We’ve already solved the complexities around job time-tracking for both techs in the field and employees in the office, but we’re really excited with this new partnership that streamlines and enables owners, employees, and accountants to have a stress-free payday.”

Tracking hours and paying employees is the most complex element of running a home service business. Aside from the pressures of employees reviewing and receiving their paychecks on-time every time, business owners need to be accurate and meticulous because of the IRS. Businesses must ensure that their calculations - wages, taxes, benefits, and other withholdings are 100% accurate. A critical piece of the operations puzzle in the home services industry.

Market research suggests small businesses spend

). Gusto, who now serves over 100,000 businesses nationwide, has provided an effective, simple, and accurate solution to this problem. With the new integration, Housecall Pro time tracking data will be sent to Gusto automatically, saving countless hours and human error because of data entry from occurring.

“We are excited to be partnering with Housecall Pro as our first integrated partner in the home services software industry”, says Somrat Niyogi, head of Business Development at Gusto. “Housecall Pro shares our core value of championing our customers so that work empowers a better life. The more we get power through automation, the more time we can give our customers back to pursue more high-value problems.” 

The initial integration will focus on sending time card data from Housecall Pro to Gusto, and additional features and integrations will be added in the months ahead.
