FREMONT, CA: CrowdComfort, a software company, announced has secured $2 million in new funding from private investors, private organizations including Saint-Gobain, and investors through an equity crowdfunding platform, SeedInvest. The firm has raised $7.5 million to date, and the recent funding will be utilized to support the scaling of marketing, sales, and customer success teams.

The CrowdComfort smartphone application offers corporate facilities teams and occupants a novel and useful way to share data about comfort, maintenance, health, and safety concerns, including COVID-19 related issues. In response to the pandemic, the firm has also released a new product, COVID Cleaning Maps, and Analytics that tracks and displays workplace air and surfaces' cleanliness, presenting a real-time audit trail of workplace cleaning efforts.Top Facilities Management Solution Companies

Furthermore, the business plans to leverage this new financing to hasten its vision to give workers in enterprises a voice to communicate precisely and directly with facility management to curate the office experience as they re-enter the workplace.

"It's no secret that employees are nervous about their return-to-work in offices after months of doing their work-from-home," said Eric Graham, Chief Executive Officer, CrowdComfort.  "With our employee focused solutions, we are helping employers foster and create exceptional workplace experiences that ensure happier, more productive employees as they return to the office."

The funding comes at a time of swelling demand and growth for CrowdComfort due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As establishments look to expand their communications with the staff and transform from a stay-at-home to a return-to-the-office orientation, CrowdComfort supports them in reducing employee anxiety and enhancing the employee experience while driving down overall facilities budgets.

Currently, employees at many Fortune 500 institutions and pharmaceutical firms use the CrowdComfort platform to report on workplace conditions to communicate their requirements instead of outdated methods like sending emails, making phone calls, leaving sticky notes, holding conversations in the halls, or worse yet, logging a service request into a static web form. These ways often lead to miscommunications, leaving executives, facility managers, and other personnel frustrating and confusing workers during the best times and pandemics.
