Workfit, a Menlo Park, CA-based maker of an enterprise voice assistant, raised $5.5m in seed funding.
Backers included Battery Ventures, Greycroft Partners and Salesforce Ventures.
The company intends to use the funds to roll out products for innovating the meeting experience.
Founded by CEO Omar Tawakol, joined by co-founder and CTO Ahmad Abdulkader, co-founder and CPO David Wiener, and Senior Director of Engineering Mohamed El-Geish, Workfit has developed an interactive Enterprise Voice Assistant, called Eva. Eva is an intelligent meeting facilitator that enables people to make meetings searchable, taking note of decisions, and encouraging follow-up on action items.
In the future, Eva for Enterprise will be developed further, helping employees feed data into, and query data out of, a variety of CRM, task management and customer service platforms.
Eva does not require software installations, mobile apps, or specialized hardware and helps customers have more productive meetings with almost no additional effort.
