If we can provide these services through technology and expose our audience to a greater good, I would call that a win-win. With the current housing market and overall economic climate, things that keep equity in your home and save in day to day life are becoming paramount.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) January 29, 2009
Home Improvement Pros, Inc. (HomePros) today announced the launch of the new HomePros Community, a free social network for home improvement and green living. The new social network incorporates an open-source content management system (CMS) which empowers users to easily create content, connect with the member community at large and collaborate on home improvement. Based in Austin, Texas, the home of the green movement, HomePros plans to leverage its exposure to the general home improvement community to widely promote environmentally friendly and cost saving products and services.
"We think the combination of an active social networking community with easy-to-use tools that help homeowners in the home improvement process, and home professionals grow and manage their business, is a unique value proposition -- something missing in the market today and the future of our industry," said Phillip Rather, HomePros' CEO. "If we can provide these services through technology and expose our audience to a greater good, I would call that a win-win. With the current housing market and overall economic climate, things that keep equity in your home and save in day to day life are becoming paramount."
The HomePros BETA Community is available today at http://www.homepros.com for users to visit and sign-up for a free membership. HomePros heavily encourages "green thinkers" to join and use the site as a platform to get their voice out. Over the coming months, HomePros will release a suite of modules that allow Homeowners and Service Providers the ability to easily communicate and work together through Estimating, CRM, and Project Management applications.
HomePros provides innovative, quality and value-add web resources, software as a service (SaaS) and directory-based social networking solutions to empower homeowners and home professionals in the worldwide home improvement market and green lifestyle. With a focus on sustainable living and the environment, HomePros' mission is to become the only true service based marketplace on the web by uniting the home improvement world through community and productivity tools. Founded in 2006, HomePros is headquartered in Austin, Texas with offices in Atlanta, Georgia.
