Humanity.com, which bills itself as a workforce-management platform, has secured $9 million in a Series B round of funding led by MHS Capital. Also participating were Point Nine Capital in Germany, Klever Internet Investments, Team Builder Ventures and Boku CEO Mark Britto. This round follows a $3.2 million round in September 2014.
Previously known as Shiftplanning, the platform is used for (take a deep breath now) workforce scheduling, labor and sales forecasting, performance evaluations, identity management, time and attendance tracking, payroll reporting, leave management and a secure communications platform. It works over web and mobile.
Employees get a mobile app that they can use to access their schedule, request shift swaps, etc. Against on-premise software you have all the benefits of a SaaS solution that you don’t have to maintain or worry about upgrades. Remember: Enterprise is sexy!
New applications available on the Humanity platform include a secure messaging application and connections with third-party payroll providers.
Humanity added three Silicon Valley executives to its advisory board: Victoria Treyger, the chief marketing officer at Kabbage; Michael Wolfe, technology entrepreneur and portfolio advisor at Point Nine Capital; and Mark Britto. The company also has a development office out of Belgrade, Serbia.
