Sitehands, which is developing a digital marketplace that matches IT field service technicians with customer projects, appears to be in funding mode.
The company raised an additional $10.7 million from five investors after raising $15 million in the past year, according to North Carolina Business News Wire. ChannelE2E doesn’t know if the funding is in addition to the $25 million growth equity commitment that FTV Capital announced in June 2017 (we’re checking).
Sitehands “connects customer specific needs with vetted technicians through a two-sided marketplace and then extends that value to the customer by assuming full accountability for end-to-end service outcomes,” the company claims. “The company’s on-demand technology platform can easily scale to offer all types of hands-on IT field work at virtually any location, seamlessly connecting customers and technicians via simplified interactions.”
Founder and CEO JP Rosato also is executive chairman and founder of CS Technology, an IT Infrastructure advisory and execution firm focused on providing clients unique perspective into complex IT projects and programs.
In some ways, Sitehands sounds like OnForce and WorkMarket, two on-demand talent marketplaces that recently rolled up into ADP. Still, there are some clear differences. OnForce matched IT pros with every type of IT project, all the way down to consumer and SOHO engagements. WorkMarket is more of a contractor management system that can mobilize large on-demand workforces if needed. Sitehands, meanwhile, appears to target midmarket and enterprise customers that need multi-location support.
