Company background

Uptick is quickly becoming the global leader in field servicing for the building compliance niche. Having already conquered the Australian market, they are now growing in the UK, with sights set on North America and then the world.

Building compliance is an increasingly important part of maintaining the world's largest asset class - property - and Uptick's vision is to make the compliance of every building in the world visible in real time, disrupting a clunky and slow-moving industry while having an outsize positive impact on the world.

Uptick's core product, Uptick Workforce, helps companies manage their mobile workforce to perform legislatively required and often complex routine asset maintenance activities. Their product allows customers to uniquely identify every building and every piece of equipment in that building, creating opportunities for tie-ins to facility management, insurance underwriting, and local government or emergency services.

Uptick currently has 250+ customers and a 99% retention rate. Over 450,000+ buildings and nearly 10 million assets are maintained using Uptick's software every year. Their goal is to double in size in FY22/23, largely through international expansion into the NZ and UK markets.

The business recently received a significant investment round from Accel-KKR. This investment and partnership will enable Uptick to fuel their international expansion, grow their customer success capabilities and accelerate their ambitious product roadmap. This marks Uptick's fourth funding round - early investors include Australia investment firms such as Folklore Ventures and Equity Venture Partners.
