There are countless workforce management applications and tools for workers that spend most of their time in front of a computer. But for members of the workforce that don’t sit at a desk, there’s a dearth of options to do simple administrative tasks, creating a bottleneck in communication between employers and employees. Sona is a workforce platform designed specifically for the needs of frontline workers (often deskless) like those working in retail, healthcare, logistics, and even manufacturing. The platform, founded earlier this year, focuses on shift scheduling, company communications, holiday leave scheduling, and feedback to ensure that both employees and employers are on the same page. London TechWatch caught up with Cofounder Steffen Wulff Petersen to learn more about building a timely solution for an economy where the concept of work is evolving, the company’s strategic plans, and recent round of funding from Speedinvest, Andy Leaver of Notion Capital, Lorenzo Franzi of Flash Ventures, and several partners from Novator.
