Stockholm, 24 June 2021--TechBuddy, a leading company for tech support in Europe, today announced that it will acquire 100 percent of TidyApp, an app-based platform for cleaning services in Stockholm.
TidyApp is a Swedish start-up that provides home cleaning services to consumers. It provides a matching service between freelancers and customers. The start-up offers both an on-demand cleaning as well as a subscription model for recurring services. Their digital approach to home cleaning allows customers to conveniently order services and maintain an oversight of their engagement through an app. TidyApp currently has about 4000 customers and covers the greater Stockholm region.
“Cleaning service is the most common home service utilized in the Swedish market. It represents the biggest RUT spending, and is steadily growing. TidyApp has taken a similar approach to cleaning as TechBuddy has to tech support, utilizing a strong platform and a flexible value offer, and is therefore a great addition to our company. We are especially excited about welcoming Ted Elvhage to our group, and accessing his great knowledge and experience” comments Tahero Nori, CEO and founder of TechBuddy.
Ted Elvhage, CEO of TidyApp says: “We’re looking forward to becoming part of the TechBuddy Group and bundling our forces. The market for cleaning services is on the rise, and we strongly believe that this acquisition will enable us to grow fast, and expand our current service offering from Stockholm to the whole of Sweden.”
The acquisition of TidyApp marks another step in TechBuddy’s strategy to broaden its service portfolio, and become the number one brand for home services in Europe. Together with the recent acquisition of Swedish marketplace platform TaskRunner, TechBuddy’s service portfolio now encompasses tech services, handyman services such as furniture assembly, refurbishment, and painting, as well as cleaning services.
TidyApp will operate as a separate division under its own brand within TechBuddy’s service business.
