Envoy's New Acquisition Helps Companies Transform Workspaces


A hybrid workplace is complicated for some. Businesses potentially face a communication challenge as video conferencing systems aren't meeting the needs of hybrid working. Another challenge is company culture. Businesses have to find ways to get employees to connect with each other as well as the company to build a positive culture.

Envoy is helping companies transform modern workspaces into hybrid work with its workplace platform that streamlines processes that can get in the way of work and community building. Following a $111 million funding round in January, and a first for Envoy, it acquired desk reservation and scheduling startup, OfficeTogether.

With the acquisition, Envoy will focus on accelerating innovation in the workspace and helping companies build spaces that are collaborative, productive and loved by employees.

OfficeTogether is a workplace collaboration platform purpose-built for the hybrid office. The platform empowers teams to bring their people back together at the office, regardless of circumstances.  For instance, with OfficeTogether, companies incorporated desk reservations, health checks and contact tracing, vaccine tracking, event management and space optimization into their hybrid workspaces.

OfficeTogether integrates with many popular platforms already being used by businesses, making it easy to integrate features into the work environment.  Integrations include: Slack, Google, Okta, Teams, Outlook, ADP, and more.

OfficeTogether’s customers will migrate to Envoy’s platform over the next few months. OfficeTogether CEO and Founder Amy Yin, along with the company’s engineers and designers, will join Team Envoy and help accelerate the next generation of innovative products for more welcoming, engaging spaces.

Investing more in product development and engineering will help Envoy fast track additions to its workplace platform and equip companies to successfully run their workplaces now and in the future.
