G2 Review Rating:  ★★★★ (4.7)      Date Established:  2014      Location:  San Diego, CA

Industries of Focus:  Solar, Roofing,  Pool & Spa, and Home Service Businesses

We believe that industries that we specialize in give us an advantage because we have made a vast number of improvements over the years that make our platform the perfect fit for solar, roofing, remodeling, and other home services businesses. Integrations include website, API, and CRM software. In addition, our platform has grown tremendously in its features and functionality since our company was founded, including our new Review Portal, which was just launched today.

Our platform provides both Referral Program Management and Review Management features specifically designed for the industries that we focus on.

Features like our project status tool allow our customers to customize the different stages of their projects, and then they can update the customer projects from within the GTR dashboard. This then sends an automatic push notification notifying the customer that their project has been updated automatically. And with our CompanyCam integration, pictures of the project can easily be attached to the project updates as well. This is just one of the features specially designed for the industries that we serve.

Our founder and CEO, Jamey Vumback, was a solar business owner before he created the GTR platform out of a need for his own business. In 2014, Jamey launched Get The Referral as its own business, and continued to improve the platform based on feedback from our valued customers.
