Betterview was founded in 2014 by David Lyman and David Tobias. David Tobias was born into the insurance industry having grown up in the family business of performing property inspections. Realizing that the number one most problematic part of any property was the roof, he teamed up with his fellow Bay Area friend, David Lyman, to find a solution. David Lyman is a repeat startup founder with a deep background in enterprise software.
Betterview is quickly becoming essential to every transaction around buildings and properties by making every property thoroughly understood. We provide software and services that capture, organize, and analyze data for buildings and properties to unlock valuable insight.
Betterview is the only property data platform that informs every transaction for decision-makers who want to reduce risk, cost & waste in an increasingly competitive environment.
Every day, our team is focused on the needs of our customers. We strive to earn your trust by providing valuable, accurate insight around buildings and properties that are important to your business. It is important to us that we provide our customers with information that is not only useful to their business decisions, but that is easy to use.
