Companies Similar to Espresa - Part 1 (Bucketlist)

INTRODUCTION

Bucketlist is a startup company that offers two services. Bucketlist.org is a "free online idea and goal setting tool." A second site, Bucketlistrewards.com, is a service that corporations can engage to provide employee recognition and reward programs. Their services focus on setting life goals and connecting them to professional success.

Because the company was founded very recently (in 2015) and is privately held, information on its revenue, initial investment, and investors is not readily available, however, we have incorporated the available information in this spreadsheet.

ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS MODEL

Bucketlist has 2-10 employees and is based in Vancouver, Canada. The core business idea centers on the "bucket list"--the things an individual would like to experience in life before "kicking the bucket" or dying. Instead of offering a catalog of products as performance rewards, Bucketlist presents employees with an online portal that helps them set goals, earn recognition, and get rewarded. Employees set up individual lists and they can choose from a wide range of experiences--such as driving a race car, taking an art class, or running in a challenging race. Corporations use Bucketlist to build a collaborative and rewarding corporate culture. The company claims that its research shows that the contemporary workforce--and particularly workers from the millennial generation--prefer to be rewarded with experiences rather than products.

Because the company was founded very recently (in 2015) and is privately held, information on its revenue, initial investment, and investors is not readily available.

CUSTOMERS

The company lists an array of corporate clients on its website--including O2E, Gem Hospitality Group, and Global Tax Network. Although the total number of its customers is not publicly available, Bucketlist has 110,000 members and over 2 million goals posted on its site. It is not clear how many of the members and goals are specific to the free goal setting service as opposed to the employee rewards programs.

CONCLUSION

Bucketlist recognizes that today's workers are motivated by life goals, which include the desire to have interesting and challenging experiences. It provides a free online service to motivate individuals to identify and reach their life goals. By linking success in the workplace to the realization of life goals, Bucketlist allows employers to create a corporate culture where employee success aligns with the accomplishment of life goals--leading to greater workplace satisfaction.

Companies Similar to Espresa - Part 6 (Skilo)

OVERVIEW
Skilo is a privately held company that focuses on talent management as well as HR process management. The technology is built using Salesforce and is cloud-based. My findings are detailed in the attached spreadsheet.
METHODOLOGY
I found information on the company’s website, blog, and LinkedIn profile detailing the number of employees, estimated number of customers, and top three high-profile customers and location. We identified the top three high-profile customers by reading through customer reviews featured at the bottom of the company website home page. We searched several additional sources such as Owler, Crunchbase, etc., but were unable to find information on revenue and initial investment. We believe the reason for this lack of information is that Skilo is a private company and as such, is not required to disclose its financials.

Companies Similar to Espresa - Part 8 (360 Feedback)

Our research indicates that 360 Feedback is not a distinct company or platform, but is rather an assessment product provided by Zyvo.
However, the 360 Feedback Zyvo assessment is compared on G2Crowd to many of the HR software competitors in the spreadsheet, and it is the only product we found that is so named, so it is reasonable to assume that the Zyvo 360 Feedback assessment is the referenced competitor. Because granular information specific to the 360 Feedback product is uniformly unavailable, the company Zyvo has been profiled for the '360 Feedback' competitor profile.

Zyvo appears to be an early stage startup with a low employee count. Key company customers include multi-national enterprises EY, BPO and KMPG; there is no data available which offers information on key customers specific to the 360 Feedback assessment. Below you'll find our methodology and relevant findings, the details of which can also be found on the provided spreadsheet.

METHODOLOGY

Please note that our research encompassed third-party information databases, social media profiles, financial reports, case studies, tech industry and media articles, and press releases. This search consistently demonstrated a low profile of information available for Zyvo, both self-generated and via third-parties. As a privately held company, this means that information on revenue, customer base size, investor identity and initial investment amount are unavailable in the public domain, though they may be available, via purchase, from Pitchbook.

ZYVO - 360 FEEDBACK

OVERVIEW
Zyvo is located in Almere, Flevoland, Netherlands and self-reports having 2-10 employees. It was founded in 2014. The 360 Feedback assessment product is an automated assessment and analytics tool for generating and collecting 360 feedback assessments.


REVENUE AND FUNDING
Zyvo does not currently have a third-party business information profile on Owler, Crunchbase, Hoover's, Bloomberg's or AngelList, which are the primary public resources for granular information on private companies regarding revenue, employee size, funding, etc. However, Zyvo's Pitchbook profile indicates that the company's latest funding round was an "early stage VC" deal. If this is true, it is also reasonable to assume that the company may not be showing profit, which is common in VC-backed companies. The lack of third-party profiles or media mentions of funding could indicate that the investment was small or moderate. Two investors were mentioned, but there is no information publicly available which identifies them.

CUSTOMERS
According to industry sources, key customers of Zyvo include: "ABN AMRO, KPMG, EY, Baker Tilly, BDO, Crowe Horwath, Surinam Aiways." We determined 'top high-profile' companies as those which are multi-national enterprises and show revenue in the multi-billion dollar range. These include KPMG ($26.4B), EY ($31.4B), Baker Tilly ($3.4B) and BDO ($8.1B). Of these, the top three are KPMG, EY and BDO. It should be noted that these are key customers of Zyvo, and are not specific to the 360 Feedback product. There was no information available specific to customers of this particular product. As Zyvo does not publicly offer any information about its overall customer base and there were no third-party references available, we were unable to estimate the total number of customers, either for Zyvo or for its 360 Feedback assessment.

CONCLUSION

To wrap it up: Zyvo is the parent company which offers the 360 Feedback assessment product, and it appears to be an early-stage startup. No granular information is available specific to 360 Feedback customers, but Zyvo customers include EY, Baker Tilly and KPMG. Available details on Zyvo can be found in the provided spreadsheet.

Companies Similar to Espresa - Part 9 (Chronus)

OVERVIEW:
Chronus is a company based in Bellevue, Washington, USA that offers mentoring software to enhance employee experiences in different companies across the globe. Like Espresa, the company's software is focused on employees, only its angle is geared towards training and matching employees with skill development opportunities.

EMPLOYEES:
There are a variety of different online sources that provide a range for the number of employees at Chronus. LinkedIn states there are 110 employees, whereas Glassdoor claims there are anywhere from 51-200 staff members, and Crunchbase estimates there are 51-100 employees. Given the range in statistics that is readily available online, it is safe to estimate that Chronus has anywhere from 51-200 employees.

NUMBER OF CUSTOMERS:
No third party has published an accurate, unbiased number of customers for Chronus. Chronus's website, however, does state that more than 1,500,000 people have used the mentoring software. In 2015, Chronus had also published an article stating they had more than 500,000 users. It is not clear if customer base has grown or declined in recent years.

HIGH PROFILE CUSTOMERS:
Chronus has a number of high-profile customers in its roster, including: TATA, Daimler Trucks, MetLife, Bridgestone Americas Inc., MEDLINE, Big Brothers Big Sisters and PNC amongst other companies who have sought Chronus's mentoring software to improve their companies' employee outreach programs.

REVENUE:
Chronus's annual revenue was published on Glassdoor as a range between $1-5 million US dollars. There is no published annual report on Chronus's website, but according to an article published in 2015, the company was named Inc. Magazine's Fast 5000 List as one of the fastest growing private companies. To earn this accomplishment companies must show consistent growth throughout a four-year window, and must have revenues of at least $2 million. It is unclear if the company's financial position has accelerated, declined or maintained progress. It's difficult to predict financial success in today's ever-changing tech-market.

LIMITATIONS:
No information regarding investors or initial investments were found after scouring the internet. A lack of information about investors is likely due to the fact that the company is a private corporation and public information is not available.

CONCLUSION:
Chronus is similar to Espresa in the sense that the software platform caters largely to employees, but it differs in the scope of what it offers. Chronus has an impressive list of high-profile clients and has experienced financial success in recent years. It is unclear the exact number of employees and what the company's current financial position is. There were some limitations in our research due to lack of available information regarding the company.

EMPLOYEES

While the company does not currently advertise available positions, they emphasize that individuals who are both talented in software development and passionate about wellness should apply on their website.

CoreHealth lists many of their customers and case studies under the “Who We Help” tab of their website.

In 2017, Canadian Business ranked CoreHealth Technologies no. 337 on their annual PROFITS 500 list for CoreHealth’s achievement of a 168% five-year revenue growth. Due to the fact that the company is private and has chosen not to disclose information about initial investors and investments.

Companies Similar to Espresa - Part 11 (sproutHR)

OVERVIEW
Per your request for companies similar to Espresa, I have researched an in-depth look at sproutHR. As the firm is run by a single woman, Ashley Cox, that services small- to medium-sized businesses, financial information is not readily available for this company. My findings are detailed in the attached spreadsheet.

SPROUTHR CUSTOMERS
Through the information on Cox's website and small news articles about her business, I was able to find that she has served up to 35 clients in around one operative year. Some of these clients are based in the same area of Northeast Tennessee, but other online companies connect from states such as "Arizona, California, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, and Texas."

Through client testimonials on Cox's website, I have found some names of companies such as Legacy Lofts, Laymancreek Interiors, and Oh Yes! Communications. As all of Cox's recorded clientele are niche businesses, I was unable to determine a ranking system due to inadequate profile information.

FINANCIAL INFORMATION
As sproutHR was founded in July 2016 by Ashley Cox, and is still a "one-woman show," financial information is not readily available. Therefore initial investment, investors, and revenue are unable to be triangulated.

CONCLUSION
There is limited information available about this small company, but if inquiring further interests you, here is a link for you to contact Cox directly.

Companies Similar to Espresa - Part 13 (WebExit)

WebExit is an exit interview management software that was developed by Nobscot. WebExit removes the manual process of exit interviews and makes it highly effective and data-driven. It continuously updates reports and provides specific information on turnover issues in an organization.

WebExit was developed to serve large and mid-sized companies around the world. WebExit was in 2001 awarded "The Top 10 HR Technology Products of the year award by HR Executive Magazine." Nobscot, the company which developed WebExit is located in Kailua, Hawaii. A summary of the findings can be found on the spreadsheet here.

Methodology

It must be noted that WebExit is the product and not the company. The client's request specifies companies. However, the information contained in this report mostly refers to Nobscot, the company that developed WebExit.
The information is primarily derived from the Nobscot company website. Since Nobscot is a private, self-funded company, certain information such as total number of clients, number of employees, investors, initial investment, and revenue is not publicly accessible. Therefore, other supplementary sources have been used to estimate and give a general idea of those aspects.

Number of employees

We could not get the exact number of employees working at Nobscot since the company's website does not give that information and other websites gave differing estimates. LinkedIn estimates them to be between 2-10, Owler gives 29 and Glassdoor gives 1-50. So we can safely say that the number of employees is below 50.

Estimated number of customers

The company's website does not specify the total number of clients. They, however, indicate that their customer base spans all industries and they are in operation in more than 20 countries. A confirmed figure cannot, therefore, be mentioned. Their favorite customers are in industries like financial services, technology, healthcare, medical research, education, and government.

Top customers/ famous brands

The top 3 clients, based on their fortune 500 rankings, would be:
1. United Technologies (rank 45)
2. General Dynamics (rank 88)
3. AECOM (rank 156)

Investors

Nobscot is a profitable company which is self-funded. No investor has been mentioned, however, it is noted that they are open to having interested investors.

Revenue

The revenue estimates for Nobscot according to Owler are $5.5M

Initial investment

Being a self-funded company, Nobscot's initial investment came from the founders. Co-founder Beth Carvin mentioned that they started the company on a shoestring budget of $10,000.

Conclusion

This report provides various details on WebExit and Nobscot, the company which developed the software. A summary of the details can be found on the spreadsheet here.

Companies Similar to Espresa - Part 15 (HRMetricsPro)

Retensa is a company that offers HRMetricsPro as an HR solution. It is a private, for-profit company, with estimated revenue of close to $1.3M, about 36 clients, and less than 50 employees. Major clients include Bayer, GE, and Priceline.com.

Below, I will go over the answers to each of the required spreadsheet columns.

Spreadsheet Overview

Since HRMetricsPro is a product, and not a company, I have provided the requested information in relation to Retensa, the company behind it. In order to make the spreadsheet clearer, I modified the name in the first column from 'HRMetricsPro' to 'HRMetricsPro (Solution developed by Retensa)'.

Website: There is a HRMetricsPro website, however it is under construction. Therefore, I have listed the official Retensa website instead.

Employees: I have used the number of employees at Retensa on LinkedIn (34). Crunchbase lists Retensa as having 11-50 employees, which is in line with this figure.

Estimated Number of Customers: Retensa lists 36 clients on their website. There is unfortunately no way of knowing which ones use HRMetricsPro, so the real figure is most likely smaller.

Top Three High-Profile Customers: From the customers listed on their website, I chose Bayer Healthcare, Deloitte, and GE as the most high-profile, as all three are famous global businesses.

Investors: Retensa is a private, for-profit company, and does not appear to have received initial investment funding. As such, I listed CEO and founder Chason Hecht in this section, as the closest equivalent available.

Revenue: Retensa is a private company and thus its revenue information is not publicly available. However, Hoovers.com estimates its revenue to be USD $1.28M.

Initial Investment: See 'Investors'.

Location: This information was available on Retensa's website.

CONCLUSION

Unlike many other entries on the spreadsheet, HRMetricsPro is not a company, but a solution developed by Retensa, an employee retention consultancy. With the official HRMetricsPro website under construction, and little practical detail about the development of the software on the Retensa website, information for Retensa has mostly been applied instead.

There is a possibility that more in-depth information about HRMetricsPro will become available when the official website launches.

The information requested for Advisor HR, Row 20, has been completed on the attached spreadsheet. All the information was found except for number of customers, top clients, and investment information. Advisor HR is a small, private company with limited information available publicly. Please see below for more details on the in-depth search I conducted.

Company Overview

Advisor HR provides "Trusted Advisors" with human resources solutions including HR Administration, HR Benefits, and HR Employee Financial Services to offer their clients. Their "Trusted Advisors" are typically CPA's, CFP's, Insurance Agents, and others who work with small to medium business clients (1-1,000 employees).

Adivsor HR has around 40 employees. LinkedIn reports that they have between 11-50 employees, and Manta reports 40 employees.

Annual revenue for the company is $4 million, according to both D&B Hoovers and Manta.

Advisor HR is headquartered in Huntersville, NC, and there is an Operations Center in Auburn Hills, MI.

Information Not available

Despite an in-depth search of their website, multiple company profiles (LinkedIn, Hoovers, Owler, Manta, Bloomberg), press releases, etc., I was not able to find any information about the number of clients they serve, and only found one of their partner names (Hamilton Edwards). As mentioned above, Advisor HR works through partners called "ION Trusted Advisors" (Independent Office Network), in order to build their portfolio of business offerings. I did find a list of the industries they serve (below), but again, Advisor HR works through partners and does not directly work with the end users in these industries: Medical, Financial, Technology, Equipment and Light Manufacturing, Warehousing, Non-Profit, Professional, Staffing, and Franchises.

There was also no information available about their investors despite a thorough search, including Crunchbase. Advisor HR does not exist in their database. Again, considering they are a small, private company, this information does not exist publicly.

conclusion

Information for Advisor HR's employee size, locations, and revenue was found. Investment information, number of clients, and top client names could not be found online due to the company being small and private, as well as their business model (selling through partners).
