handdii raises $3 million

Melbourne, Australia-based claim management platform Handdii has raised $3 million in a Seed round of funding led by Brick & Mortar Ventures, with participation from Nine Four Ventures and Australia-based Scale Investors and Fifty-Second Celebration.

Founded in 2017, Handdii is a property insurance claims fulfillment platform that pairs insurance companies with contractors and ensures that all parties involved in the claim process receive real-time updates. The platform structures data requests, standardizes workflows, improves transparency for policyholders, and transitions claims management from a cumbersome manual, offline process to a cloud-native system of record. Insurance partners include Allianz Australia and Hippo Insurance.

“Having faced the challenges of leading a claims operation myself we launched handdii three years ago to transform the way small claims are handled. We are delighted to have leading U.S. construction and prop tech VCs Brick and Mortar and Nine Four join handdii as we solidify and expand our operations both in the United States and Australia.” – Kathryn Wood, handdii’s COO and Co-Founder.

“The role of the contractor is critical in the property damage claims experience, as they are working at the physical front line of the insurer’s customer interface. The handdii platform streamlines the process of managing the requirements of the insurer, which in turn frees up time for contractors to focus on what’s really important – delivering quality work and an outstanding homeowner experience while performing repair work inside, on top, under, or around someone’s home.” – Darren Bechtel, Founder and Managing Director of Brick and Mortar Ventures.
