Why you should join Latchel

Latchel supports property management companies and landlords across the US. Our primary service troubleshoots and dispatches 24/7 emergencies for property managers. We work with a company's existing vendors if they have them and provide vendors when their vendors are unavailable or they don't have them. We provide diagnostic, troubleshooting, and dispatching services so property managers have more free time and less frustration. We use technology to improve the experience for renters and vendors and make our operations processes more efficient.

Latchel offers services in several multi-billion dollar industries. Property management is a $72B industry in the US; contractor services are worth hundreds of billions. Both of these industries are underserved by technology and suffer from low market penetration and extreme fragmentation. At Latchel, we believe we understand the reasons for low market penetration and take a different approach than other companies in the field. We'd love to talk to you more about this.
