Handy Launches a New Mobile App

As the market for online and mobile cleaning makes an upturn, Handy has hit over $ 1 million in bookings per week. According to Umang Dua, the head of operations at Handy, the company has moved from a run rate of $3 million to $52 million. The new on-demand economy pack offers a better model for service professionals and consumers. With the launch of a new mobile app, Handy’s cleaners are like an ATM in the pocket.

Most Handy’s cleaning professionals are paid between $15 and $22 per hour. Importantly, Handy allows you to pick your working hours. The increase of Handy’s revenue comes as the company re-defines its business through new mobile apps and new branding. In turn, consumers are increasingly becoming comfortable with booking services through the new mobile app. Through mandated background checks, cleaning professionals at Handy are thoroughly vetted.

According to Hanrahan, Handy’s new platform serves as a household remote. With the new app, Handy can roll out all of its services in an instant booking process. Handy sees itself as providing services beyond home cleaning. However, the bulk of Handy’s ballooning revenue comes from cleaning services. In fact, 85% of Handy’s revenue comes from cleaning while the remainder is split between plumbing and handyman services.
