VerticalCloud Moves Headquarters to Erie, PA

Erie, PA

VerticalCloud (www.verticalcloud.com) – creators of niche web-based business software applications --- have expanded their operations by opening a new office in Ft. Myers, FL at 8831 Business Park Drive, Suite #301 Ft. Myers, FL 33912. To keep pace with VerticalCloud’s growth, the CEO has also tapped a new Chief Opportunity Officer (COO) to oversee the growing line of real estate SaaS (software-as-a-service) products, including VerticalRent (www.verticalrent.com) and AppSingular (www.appsingular.com).

According to the Co-Founder and CEO of VerticalCloud, about 32% of the American population chooses to rent instead of buy. The strong demand for rental properties has been the key to the successful growth of both VerticalRent and AppSingular across the nation. The CEO also credits the platform’s success to the simplicity of use and ability for landlords and property managements to quickly screen tenants and collect rent electronically.

“Due to the booming rental market, and our ability to build easy-to-use software, VerticalCloud continues to double every month and is projecting a record year of growth in 2014. Our modest start and hard work is beginning to take shape. I am an Erie-native and always envisioned founding a progressive technology company in the area that embraces an entrepreneurial mindset – much like companies out of Silcon Valley,” says the CEO.

VerticalCloud was founded in early 2011 by two Real Estate professionals who were also childhood friends. The company has quickly grown with the launch of VerticalRent and AppSingular. As an FCRA-compliant consumer reporting agency, VerticalCloud plans to build its call center operations in Erie, Pennsylvania and also hire a few Internet Marketing Specialists to help promote their SaaS products in the marketplace. “I went to Harborcreek Highschool and Erie is home to me. It’s important for me that this town continues to thrive – long after the layoffs and business closings. VerticalCloud’s entrepreneurial business model will bring excitement and a sense of hope to people who are looking to innovate,” concludes the CEO.
