Handy increases funds from investors for expansion

Handy is an online platform that makes it easy for consumers to get professional services. The services include cleaning the house, repairing and other services such as plumbing in a home. It was founded in 2011 by Hanrahan and Dua. The online platform got funding from institutions such as Fidelity and some existing investors who include Highland Capital, General Catalyst among others. The company that was co-founded by the CEO Hanrahan confirmed that they will use the funds to expand to cities and reach a figure of 56 cities.

Handy has had a smooth ride, and it is still thriving for greater success. It has been involved in a completely turning around of the online platform of offering cleaning services. During its first three years, it had hit a $ 1 million value in booking per week. It is, however, heading to perform highly due to its products. The latest mobile app has turned the experience into a better one to their consumers.

Spring cleaning is the best practice that makes homes clean. In most homes cleaning the houses that involve thorough work is not guaranteed. It has been an enormous task for other companies to offer such services but Handy is proving to be the king in the industry. Spring cleaning makes the house structures more refurbished and brings a new look to the homeowners. It is a tedious process, and it’s vital that consumers get the best service that they require from the companies.

Handy has been able to reach that market from the services that they provide. The company thoroughly vets cleaning professionals and other service providers before being allowed to offer any services. The company gets most of its customers through referrals, and this has made them successful in their operations.

Consumers require a flexible app that they can be able to interact freely with. Handy has offered a mobile platform where they can request for services at their comfort. The app has made it flexible for the professional cleaners by connecting them correctly with the clients. In 2015, it remained the sole service provider when Homejoy its competitor left the market.
