Our recently conducted focus groups clearly confirmed that fact,” said Mark Holmes, CEO of Zonetail. “We immediately set out to find a company that we could partner with that does this exceptionally well. When we were introduced to Thumbtack, we knew they were the partner we were looking for, their technology and scale is fantastic.”
