We’re excited to share that we have led Opus’ $6.8M Series A!
Opus is pioneering a modern, employee-centric and consumer-like learning and operations SaaS platform in deskless industries such as restaurants, retail, field services, construction, and manufacturing.
70% of the US workforce, representing over 110 million individuals, are deskless workers and do not have access to effective training technology. Historically, Learning Management Systems (LMS) have largely been desktop-based, English-only, and burdensome to managers on the field, making it really hard to fit into the workflows and demographics of deskless workers. In the few organizations that do have such a tool, the employee experience tends to feel like a chore.
Opus automates every part of the employee training lifecycle in a single system and delivers all forms of training to employee phones through a mobile application that is available in more than 100 languages. It is designed to help businesses with a large distributed workforce minimize labor costs and increase sales by offering accessible training technology that can reach 99% of employees.
In industries where high employee turnover rates and low candidate availability is affecting ROI, Opus is deeply impactful to operators and businesses in increasing productivity. Hearing the stories about customers such as Salt & Straw, &Pizza, and Shipley’s Donuts switching from no software at all to Opus and the resulting organization-wide enthusiasm and passion for learning and growth-mindset has been incredibly uplifting. Customers of Opus, like Just Salad a restaurant chain, have seen a decrease in manager admin and training time by 40% and lowered labor costs by 5%-15%.
"Opus is a crucial tool for businesses that employ frontline workers in the current labor market. We are creating a world where employers can access frontline business intelligence from their majority workforce, instead of merely fulfilling a requirement. The future of work entails gaining new knowledge, fostering growth, and providing opportunities for all. Deskless workers are no exception," says CEO & Co-Founder, Rachael Nemeth. "We're thrilled to welcome Stage 2 Capital on our next chapter. They are values-aligned, data-driven, and have the experience and knowledge we were looking for in an investment partner."
We’re privileged to partner with Rachael, Jeff (CTO & Co-Founder), and Vince (Head of Design & Co-Founder) and the entire Opus team which is working hard to bring joyful learning and operations impact into the hands of frontline employees! We’re also delighted to join our friends and existing investors at Gutter Capital, NextView Ventures, and Bling Capital.
Opus is still in the early days of becoming the comprehensive platform for learning and operations management for millions of workers and we’re excited to support the team on the journey ahead!
