TaskEasy Acquired by WorkWave
Today WorkWave (Holmdel, NJ) announced it has acquired Salt Lake City-based TaskEasy, a leading service marketplace for rental property owners. Terms of the acquisition have not been disclosed. Kickstart (Salt Lake City) is an investor in TaskEasy, along with Camber Creek, Access Venture Partners, Modern Ventures, RC Capital, Delta Electronics Capital, Grotech Ventures, Constance Freedman, and others. Since 2012, the yard care services company has raised over $46 million over six rounds, according to Crunchbase.
TaskEasy's founder and CEO since 2012, Ken Davis, recognized Kickstart's support on LinkedIn today, "It's been quite an amazing journey. Thanks Gavin Christensen and Kickstart Fund for your support over many years!"
Traditionally, TaskEasy has focused on lawn and yard maintenance, snow clearing, interior cleaning and pool maintenance for single-family rental properties, but as part of the WorkWave family, will be able to expand its service offerings to include any home service, using WorkWave’s large network of customers to complete this work.
TaskEasy connects single-family rental and commercial property owners with contractors through its mobile marketplace. Combining WorkWave’s field service solutions with the TaskEasy marketplace platform will give WorkWave’s service customers exclusive access to the service work in their local area, helping its customers grow without the costly expense of sales, marketing and advertising.
“This acquisition is in keeping with our strategy of buying leading companies that, when brought into the WorkWave family, directly contribute to giving our customers a competitive advantage over non-WorkWave customers in their local area,” said David F. Giannetto, CEO of WorkWave. “TaskEasy is a best-in-class technology that directly contributes to our customers’ growth by providing them with access to a steady stream of new customers that are only available to WorkWave’s customer base. This will further strengthen our relationship with our customers because as they succeed and grow, WorkWave succeeds and grows.”
TaskEasy works with the largest single-family home rental brands and hundreds of the largest property managers across the United States, facilitating services at millions of properties in over 12,000 cities. Large residential and commercial property portfolio owners can leverage TaskEasy's suite of APIs and digital tools to manage their properties across the country and homeowners can order and manage services at the click of a button.
“TaskEasy is the first company to automate and consolidate the service work required to maintain thousands of rental properties across North America, sustaining their value and keeping them safe for residents,” said Ken Davis. “We are thrilled to join together with WorkWave so we can utilize WorkWave’s dense, national customer base to fulfill any type of service work required, while also accelerating growth for WorkWave’s entire small to midsize customer base.”
