Based out of Amsterdam, Yoho is a SaaS platform to connect, engage, and instruct your frontline employees to manage tasks and information-sharing more effectively.
In the latest development, the Dutch SaaS startup has raised €250K in pre-seed funding led by HenQ, an Amsterdam based VC that invests from pre-seed to Series A in B2B software startups in Europe. With this amount, the company is planning to develop its connected worker platform.
Olivier Verhage, co-founder and CEO of Yoho:
We not just challenging paper, which still is the status quo today, but were also generating a ton of data. We’re giving companies access to a granular dataset on how workers on the floor are performing. By tracking the activity and efficiency of non-desk workers, you now have a tool to optimize your teams and processes.
According to the company, today, paper still dominates the factory floor, and less than 10% of industrial companies use mobile technology. This means that what happens on the floor is essentially a black-box.
With Yoho, manufacturing companies can quickly create digital mobile workflows for production, quality, and maintenance teams to replace binders, reams of paper, and walkie talkies.
If you are unaware, its Facebook-like interface breaks down traditional communication barriers and enables manufacturing companies to replace paper processes with intuitive mobile workflows.
Rob Rousseau, an investor at henQ, said:
We believe the combination of Yoho’s founding team, their domain experience, and the massive opportunity will enable the company to scale rapidly and build a category leader.
