Lead Edge has invested in some of the world’s most successful technology companies, including Alibaba, Asana, Spotify, and Toast.Many home service professionals still use antiquated business management methods - such as pen and paper or Excel spreadsheets - to handle everything from customer scheduling to invoicing and follow-ups. Frustrated by the difficulty of efficiently managing and growing the business side of their locksmith company, Idan Kadosh, and Erez Marom partnered with CTO Saar Kohanovitch in 2015 to launch an all-in-one service management platform that would allow them to focus solely on what they loved while outsourcing back-office operations.
“As their businesses scale, home service providers are going out on more calls than ever before, placing significantly more stress on managing the back-office work necessary to maintain a healthy business,” said Workiz CEO Adi (Didi) Azaria. “Workiz’ rapid growth over the past two years demonstrates a clear market need for our platform, and we are motivated by providing our customers with an industry-defining product that helps them make their respective businesses stronger.”
