Our founders are process geeks, and in late 2018 they realized they were both tackling the same problem: how to get teams in different locations to follow the same policies. Paul (an operations manager) and Henry (a software engineer) knew there had to be a better way than emailing out a new policy, tracking who responded, and then following up with emails and phone calls until everyone confirmed that they had read it.
We spent all of 2019 speaking with experts across industries (including senior living) and working on prototypes. We raised $1.5m in early 2020, and when COVID-19 arrived we partnered with a senior living operator to adapt our prototype to the needs and challenges of the senior living industry and help during a critical time. We named our first product Binder, and our goal is to use software to reduce how long it takes staff to find documents and information, so that they have more time on what really matters: enriching the lives of residents.
We've come a long way, and we're excited about how much work is still left to be done.
