Our Story

Worksmith was started with one goal in mind:
to make your job easier.

 

The name Worksmith represents our core values: hard work paired with creativity. Just as a wordsmith uses words to creatively express ideas, we use innovative technology to tackle difficult tasks. Our tool is our software-enabled marketplace, and our trade is making hard work easy.

Worksmith was founded in 2015 with the mission of using modern technology to easily connect commercial tenants with local service providers. We believed there was a better way to leverage technology to make the hard work of finding, scheduling, managing, and paying local service providers easy.

We set out to create the solution: a software-enabled marketplace that reimagines facilities maintenance as a simple process. Since then, we have expanded to a variety of industries and service lines, and today we service over 1,000 locations across the US and Canada.

Our unique marketplace model means Worksmith is exceptionally positioned to get the right service provider to the right place at the right time at the most competitive price. When your request is submitted through the Worksmith platform, our network of local service providers in your area bids for the job, and our platform handles scheduling. In addition, Worksmith Client Success is an extension of your team - we manage the details to ensure your job gets done on time, every time.

We believe in the power of the marketplace model. We offer our software for free to commercial tenants and local service providers to ensure interactions are automated instead of manual. We provide tenants with a positive experience in handling facilities management and local service providers with the opportunity to bid on new jobs.
