Tactic Raises $3M to Develop A New Suite of Hybrid Workplace Tools

Early on in the pandemic, it became apparent that the traditional workplace was experiencing a permanent shakeup. After a monumental shift to remote work, many employees were quick to embrace their newfound flexibility and reprieve from office attire. But as time went on, employee engagement began to decline and it quickly became clear that office collaboration still had an important role to play.

That’s why we built Tactic.

Over the past year and a half, our team has worked obsessively towards one goal: to provide a best-in-class suite of hybrid office tools that effectively bridge the gap between remote and office work.

Today, I am excited to announce the recent closing of a $3M seed round, led by Salt Lake City-based Peterson Ventures. Exceeding our initial target of $1.5M, this round has enabled us to rapidly expand our vision for Tactic. In addition to Peterson Ventures, the seed round included investments from Epic Ventures; Bret Larsen, the CEO of eVisit; David Nixon, Executive Vice President at JLL; Nate Quigley, CEO of Chatbooks; and Tom Burton, co-founder of Health Catalyst.

Our current hybrid solutions

Tactic empowers teams worldwide to stay connected without sacrificing the flexibility we have come to depend on. Using our core tools, employees are able to reserve individual and group workspaces, while supplying employers with valuable office usage insight.

Tactic’s live seating maps are tailor-made for each organization, giving users real-time feedback on who will be in the office, making in-person collaboration simple.

Maria Alvarado, Facilities Manager at 1010 Data and a valued user says that “Tactic is the most important piece to working in our offices. Everything we need is in one place – reservations, tracking, logging, desk, and private office usage. Everything.”

Our vision for the (near) future

Every week, we have the opportunity to aid a variety of organizations in their transition to a hybrid workplace. These interactions provide valuable insight into the challenges faced by employers and employees alike.

Thanks to our recently-funded seed round, Tactic will continue to tackle each of these challenges, starting with a brand new lineup of health and safety tools.

Once available, employers will have the option to monitor employees’ COVID-19 vaccination and test results, supporting the diverse health and safety needs of organizations worldwide. Office admins may also opt-in to receive alerts concerning failed health questionnaires & positive test results, allowing them to address any possible concerns. Lastly, expanded reporting and analytics tools will enable employers to quickly gauge the overall health and safety status of their office.

As the world settles into a “new normal”, Tactic will continue to gather feedback to provide simple, efficient solutions for the hybrid office. Simply put, we’re on a mission to make work better.

We invite you to join us.
