RICHMOND, Va., June 8, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Hatch, the messaging platform for home improvement and home services, today announced a new integration with Thumbtack, the modern home management platform. This new partnership will allow home professionals from Thumbtack to instantly engage homeowners via text, email, and voice on the Hatch platform.
"What we're doing with Thumbtack unlocks homeowner communication for hundreds of thousands of pros," said Jason Dolan, Director of Growth & Acquisition at Hatch. "The partnership and integration help Thumbtack pros set more appointments and win more jobs by using our fully automated SMS-based sales process. It's really a no-brainer."
Communicating with homeowners and customers as soon as possible is critical to the success of a business. A study from MIT Sloan found that potential customers who received a response within five minutes of their inquiry are nine times more likely to reply than a customer who waits 10 minutes to hear back.

With Hatch allowing business owners to automatically reply to job inquiries almost instantly, Thumbtack pros will be able to dramatically increase their customer satisfaction. In fact, pros using Hatch have increased their lifetime value by 400%.
"This new integration furthers our ambition to help our pros optimize all aspects of their business no matter their size, industry or need," said David Steckel, Senior Director of Partnerships at Thumbtack. "With Hatch, we're integrating a tool that allows our pros to completely automate aspects of their sales cycle from initial engagement all the way through scheduling the appointment, giving pros more time back to focus on other aspects of their business."
