SEATTLE, March 8, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Porch Group, Inc. (“Porch” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ: PRCH), a leading software vertical company reinventing the home service industry, today announced a training partnership with ATI Home Inspector Training (“ATI”), one of the largest and only family-owned national Home Inspector Training Schools. Through the partnership, ATI Home Inspector Training will provide graduates with a porch software package to start their business and provide the necessary technology infrastructure to grow and scale.
Finding practical and easy to integrate software that includes scheduling, data storage and customer relationship management is often a challenge for businesses and professionals in the home services sector. Porch and ATI’s training partnership offers new ATI training school graduates who are beginning their careers as home inspectors fast and comprehensive solutions to complement their work.
To facilitate broader engagement in the professional home inspection community, ATI will also participate in Porch’s Inspection Fuel Tour and provide free continuing education credits to participating inspectors. ATI Home Inspector Training offers face-to-face instruction in 48 states, complete with a guaranteed success for professional training courses.
“Our partnership with ATI Home Inspector Training furthers our commitment to equip the next generation of home inspectors with Porch’s comprehensive network of powerful software solutions,” said Matt Ehrlichman, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Porch. “Graduates gain access to a robust support system designed to effectively start and sustain their business. This partnership represents an important step in expanding the reach of Porch’s network of home service businesses and professionals.”
ATI Home Inspection Training founder Scott Newcomer emphasizes, “At ATI, we often say that we want our inspectors to be more than certified—we want them to qualify. Simply put, our courses are much more than a one-off certification process. Our recognized practices and field experience requirements, along with the mentoring and support available, allow more of our inspectors to complete the course with the toolkit they need to succeed.”
Porch innovates in the field of real estate technology and develops customized products for industry professionals to optimize their work and make it more efficient. Porch’s technology-driven approach to consuming data across a wide range of home services creates asymmetric opportunities and accessibility for professionals using Porch services.
The partnership is scheduled to begin on March 8, 2022.
