Article Summary:

Parsable empowers industrial frontline workers with digital tools to improve productivity, quality, safety and sustainability. The cloud-based mobile first app is device agnostic: it works with any type of smart phone, smart watch or tablet. Its platform, Connected Worker, is being used by companies in the manufacturing, energy, consumer packaged goods, chemical, aerospace, industrial equipment, automotive and packaging sectors.

“A lot of technology is aimed at the 20% of the work force that sits behind a desk but 80% of the work is being done by frontline workers. It is a community that has been overlooked,” says Lawrence Whittle, CEO of the San Francisco-based scale-up. The company, which has raised $133 million in venture capital, has customers in 70 countries and has developed over 300 uses cases in 18 languages.
