Tango | June 15, 2022
Tango, the leading Workflow Intelligence Platform that streamlines the creation of process documentation, today announced its $14 million Series A funding, bringing its total funding to $19.7M. Tiger Global Management led the round, with Slack Fund and Atlassian Ventures participating. Existing Tango investors also participated and included Wing VC, General Catalyst, GSV Ventures, Red Sea Ventures, and Outsiders Fund. In conjunction with the funding, Zach DeWitt, Partner at Wing VC, will join Tango's board of directors.
Tango's Workflow Intelligence Platform provides the insights necessary to scale business operations by standardizing best practices, onboarding and training new hires more quickly, and improving employee performance. Through its Chrome Extension and Desktop Application, Tango automatically captures processes in real-time and generates instantaneous, beautiful step-by-step how-to guides that can easily be exported or embedded into learning management systems and knowledge bases.
Since the launch of its Chrome Extension in September 2021, Tango quickly scaled to 100,000 users in just eight months and became Product Hunt's second most upvoted product of 2021.
"Slack charted the course for bottoms-up adoption. We strongly believe great collaboration tools have undeniable product-led DNA. Tango has this in spades, and we have incredibly high conviction in the team's ability to define the category,"
- Jason Spinell of Slack Fund
Over 25,000 teams are currently using Tango, highlighting the need for functionality that can serve entire organizations. Tango's Workspaces, built for teams, bring powerful collaboration features, including shared folders, viewership analytics, Workflow discovery, and user permissioning.
The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted companies' knowledge management challenges in shifting to a virtual workforce. Today, businesses still face challenges when collaborating and accessing information across the organization. The Great Resignation has only exacerbated this, with many businesses facing higher turnover rates and more significant recruitment difficulties. Tango allows teams to capture processes in the flow of work and the new Workspaces product enables real-time access to quality process documents for all team members. With real insights into how work is getting done, organizations can standardize best practices from top performers, identify knowledge gaps, and support employees to improve their performance and career satisfaction.
"We are thrilled to announce our recent funding to continue building Tango. Our mission is to improve the future of work by providing solutions businesses need for effective collaboration and knowledge sharing. In addition, we are proud to launch Workspaces, bringing organizations of all sizes the insights they need to better understand how work is performed. With the ability to see and understand how work is getting done, organizations can focus on improving employee performance, standardizing best practices, and ultimately, scaling business operations,"
- Ken Babcock, co-founder and CEO of Tango.
Tango will use the funding to continue focusing on new internal collaboration features for both the creator and the consumer of documentation. Tango envisions a future of work where documentation mirrors the organization: a living, dynamic approach to internal knowledge.
Tango is the premier Workflow Intelligence Platform that empowers people to be their best at work. Tango is the fastest way to create step-by-step tutorials and documentation, enabling top performers and teams to auto-capture and share best practices, all in the flow of work. Tango generated Workflows captured by its Chrome Extension and Desktop app helps teams onboard new hires, train employees, and facilitate process improvement.
15Five | March 14, 2022
15Five today announced the release of Perform, a robust performance management solution designed to help HR leaders create a performance program that fits their organizational goals, culture, and technology stack.
Perform enables HR leaders to run an end-to-end performance management cycle, from performance reviews through to employee compensation and career development conversations. The platform has been designed from the ground up to be easy-to-use for HR leaders, beneficial for managers and employees, and robust for managing the back-end administrative demands of a performance cycle for companies of any size.
“As companies adapt to a new work environment, the performance review needs to evolve and adapt, In addition to helping employees develop in their roles and drive informed decisions for advancement and compensation, the modern HR leader needs a performance review system that saves time to deploy, is flexible to their needs, and embeds seamlessly into their existing solutions. We designed a streamlined workflow with the goal of saving HR's time.”
-Vincent Huang, Chief Product Officer at 15Five.
The Perform platform is informed by 15Five’s research, which revealed that there are several inconsistencies and gaps in how HR leaders, managers, and employees perceive and experience the performance review process and its outcomes. For example, 75% of HR leaders agree that the review process provides an accurate representation of performance. That confidence level drops to 66% of managers and 43% of employees. 79% of HR leaders think the process is fair and equitable, but only half of employees agree. Similar differences exist for perceptions around the ability of reviews to improve performance, engagement, and employee satisfaction.
Data also suggests the need for a new approach to make this process effective in the modern workplace. Leveraging Perform, HR leaders and managers are given an opportunity to reimagine the performance review process at their organizations, close the experience gaps, and make the process impactful and fair to all involved.
An Easy-to-Use Solution
A problem common to many performance review platforms is they become cumbersome and fail to maintain a user-friendly experience as they mature. They rely on manual processes that are time-consuming, labor intensive, and fraught with human error. The result is that following implementation, the platforms are often left untouched by managers and employees.
However, being easy-to-use is in Perform’s DNA. The product features facilitate ongoing, growth-oriented performance conversations that are seamlessly integrated into the performance review process for greater accuracy and ease of use.
Dynamic integrations with HRIS platforms
Perform also enables dynamic integrations with leading human resources information system (HRIS) platforms, beginning with ADP and followed shortly by Workday and UKG. It streamlines the process of real-time updating by automatically receiving employee data from the HRIS and sending performance review data back. As a result, the HRIS can be maintained as the ‘central source of truth’ for all employee data, from job roles to historical performance results.
Perform can be customized to neatly fit with any culture or tech stack to create an experience that’s convenient for HR leaders and easy for employees to adapt. It gives HR easy access to prebuilt dashboards that are readied for quick insights that drive action. Perform’s dashboard and data tools allow HR leaders to get granular when required or view a summary analysis for an immediate read of a situation, such as company-wide stats on review completions.
Founded in 2011, 15Five equips HR leaders to play a strategic role in their company’s growth. HR leaders use 15Five to combine engagement, performance and OKRs on one platform so they can make insightful decisions and take strategic action. Unlike other “command and control” performance systems, 15Five uses the latest in people science to turn managers and employees into self-driven owners of performance and engagement. To further the impact of talent on company growth, 15Five also provides education, coaching and community for HR leaders, managers and employees. HR leaders at over 3,200 companies, including Credit Karma, Spotify and Pendo, rely on 15Five’s software and services to make their talent a growth driver.
