BOSTON, Aug. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Trade Hounds, a professional community and hiring platform built for the construction industry, today announced it has entered into a partnership with Deltek, a leading provider of software and solutions for project-based business, including construction firms. Trade Hounds has joined Deltek's Marketplace to provide Deltek + ComputerEase customers direct access to the Trade Hounds hiring platform.
Nearly 250,000 tradespeople have joined Trade Hounds to showcase their work, build professional profiles and find jobs. In the fall of 2020, Trade Hounds launched functionality to enable contractors to hire directly from the platform. Today, more than 500 contractors are using Trade Hounds to source skilled labor, which remains the biggest challenge facing the construction industry today.
Peter Maglathlin, co-founder of Trade Hounds, said: "The construction industry deserves a dedicated hiring platform that meets its unique needs. Skilled tradespeople are hard to find, which is why we built a home for these workers online. Contractors across the country are having success hiring from our deep community of skilled tradespeople."
Trade Hounds and Deltek + ComputerEase are a complementary fit as both are laser-focused on serving America's trade contractors. Trade Hounds is the largest and most active professional community dedicated to the trades. Deltek + ComputerEase powers several thousand contractors through their proactive job costing and construction-focused flexibility. While many Deltek + ComputerEase customers have grown their business over the past year, they have also experienced the pain of the current labor shortage. Deltek + ComputerEase serves as a trusted partner to thousands of trade contractors across the country, and they are focused on helping their customers navigate the complexities of the industry.
John Meibers, General Manager and Vice President of Deltek + ComputerEase said, "We're always looking for partners that bring a unique and valuable product or service to the Deltek + ComputerEase customer. Trade Hounds has built a unique community for the skilled trades. In today's tight construction labor market, getting access to qualified and skilled tradespeople can be a competitive advantage, not to mention a better way to find and hire those people that you need to grow your specialty contracting business."
