San Mateo, CA – April 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)
Rever, the leading frontline workforce empowerment solution for industrial companies, announced expansion of its North American team and a new U.S. office to support growing demand for its lean enterprise solutions. The company’s new global headquarters is located in San Mateo, California, and will be the center of growth in North America, and expanding from its development center in Guadalajara, Mexico and European office in Barcelona, Spain. Rever also announced that UniCarriers Americas Corporation, an affiliate company of Mitsubishi Logisnext America, is a new customer using the Rever platform to improve processes.
Rever, a three-year-old enterprise, is rapidly growing with an installed base of twenty-five large enterprise customers, reaching 150,000 frontline employees, with over 5,000 ideas already submitted for improvements estimated at $40 million in savings. The company’s expansion follows recent investments by Sequoia Capital and Zetta Venture Partners, strengthening Rever’s ability to further develop its products and serve an ever-growing array of customers.
UniCarriers Americas Corporation joins other major companies such as Grupo Bimbo, Mars and Philip Morris International using Rever technology to turn the collective creativity of frontline employees into process improvements.
There are an estimated three billion frontline workers whose ideas and recommendations have traditionally not been included in process decisions––yet have important ideas and observations from their day-to-day jobs. Rever’s mobile app enables frontline workers in industrial companies to quickly and easily capture their ideas, share them with management, test them, and implement them. With Rever, industrial companies worldwide unlock innovation by allowing every worker to contribute to a thriving company.
