In a funding round led by Silver Lake Waterman, WorkJam has managed to raise $35 million. The platform is a digital workplace for frontline workers. This platform is used by companies like Kroger, Shell, and Target to connect with frontline workers.
WorkJam was founded in 2014 in Canada and allows communication between companies and workers out in the field. They cover the range of health care professionals, manufacturing personnel and grocery delivery drivers, and everyone who has to work outside of the office. The services include various modules. Companies can manage tasks and shifts, provide clocking in and out facilities, training, surveying, polling and messaging, and many more from this single app.
WorkJam CEO Steven Kramer told VentureBeat, WorkJam aims at improving improve “productivity and employee retention.” The company recently launched WorkJam Everywhere which allows the integration of various components into third-party platforms with the help of APIs.
It was able to raise $62 million earlier with the help of Series C round funding. Kraner added, “We started the company with the idea of what it would look like if frontline employees had a digital workplace like desk workers do, … Our No. 1 focus has been to enable enterprises to orchestrate frontline operations. In fact, when desk workers went remote, the lack of tools for deskless workers went on full display. There is a technology gap in most businesses that ends up making operations fall apart at the location level of a business — WorkJam solves this.”
