Apps exist for a variety of services and functions. Scores of apps serve no purpose other than to allow the user to engage in leisure-time activities. Other apps serve important purposes. The Handy app allows anyone in need of home cleaning or maintenance work to book a fantastic freelancer at a fantastic price. And yes, the user can pay for the service right on a smartphone.
Millions of people are paying millions of dollars to use the Handy app. They are quite pleased with what it can do. The Handy company has also pleased investors and done so greatly. $50 million in venture capital has been directed to the company. The money is being used quite well. Handy is expanding all over the globe while its competitors crumble. One of Handy’s main competitors invested a tremendous amount of money into an innovative advertising campaign. The money was not exactly well spent. The competitor went, as the saying goes, belly up.
Handy is doing a lot better. According to Realestatetechnews, the company is worth about $500 million. That number is sure to increase because Handy keeps adding new services, affiliating with more freelancers, opening new offices, and just flat out succeeding with all its endeavors.
Handy is based out of New York and is the brainchild of two entrepreneurs who came up with a simple idea. They would connect home cleaning professionals with people in need of home cleaning work. Both service provider and customer had issues with the standard home cleaning companies who traditionally provide these services. Clients don’t like poor customer service and high fees. Freelancers do not like low pay and poor treatment. Handy allows the two parties to connect with a much easier and friendlier middleman. Millions of bookings have resulted. Handy is redefining the home services industry in a phenomenal way.
The company has only been around since 2012. The fast growth of the massively successful startup truly is remarkable. Handy CEO Oisin Hanrahan — also a co-founder — truly should be proud of the business he has managed. Startups are not exactly known for succeeding. The vast majority fold up shop within three years. Handy is doing extremely well and is approaching its fifth year in operation.
The future looks like it is going to be kind to Handy. People do want their homes cleaned, their furniture delivered, and various retail store products assembled. Handy has access to the best people capable of handling those duties.
