Envoy is a San Francisco-based company that has designed technology for businesses to manage visitors who enter their lobbies. Envoy announced this week that it has raised $43 million in Series B funding. And the company’s products are being used to sign in over 100,000 visitors at offices around the world every day.
What are some of Envoy’s products? Envoy Visitors provides visitor management solutions for any front desk. And Envoy Deliveries is a way for businesses to manage incoming office deliveries. The visitor management solution involves a sign-in process using an iPad. And office deliveries are managed with an automated system that kicks in after a barcode is scanned. Once a certain visitor signs in or a package is delivered for a specific person at the office, they will receive a notification.
Envoy has raised $43 million in Series B funding, which brings the company’s total funding to $59.5 million. The Series B round of funding was led by Menlo Ventures. Initialized Capital and Andreessen Horowitz also participated in this round. And some of Envoy’s seed investors include renowned entrepreneurs Marc Benioff, Gary Tan, and Alexis Ohanian.
Envoy’s customer base span across 72 countries, according to TechCrunch. And over 32 million visitors have signed in using Envoy to date.
Prior to launching Envoy, CEO and founder Larry Gadea worked at Google for four years and then joined Twitter after that. Google hired Gadea right out of high school in Canada after the search giant discovered a plugin he developed for a desktop search service.
“Joining our board will be Matt Murphy from Menlo and Andrew Chen from a16z. What’ll the capital be used for? We’re going to significantly invest in building products aimed at challenging the status quo of the workplace!” said Envoy in a blog post. “Thanks to our tremendously helpful and insightful customers, we’ve learned that Envoy contributes to much more than just practical security and efficiency needs—it helps them transform the workplace experience. So this got us thinking: I bet you that these 10,000 workplaces have many other problems we could help with too.”
