A SaladStop worker uses StaffAny to clock in

StaffAny, a management platform for SMBs with shift workers, raised a $3.4m Series A round led by GGV Capital. The round included participation from East Ventures, FreakOut Shinsei Fund, Far East Ventures, Farquhar Venture Capital, and angel investors including Allen Shim, former CFO of Slack. The round will be used to expand into more markets and develop new features for StaffAny’s platform, which currently operates in seven countries including Singapore, where it is based, Malaysia and Indonesia. This brings the startup’s total raised to $4.2 million.

Co-founder Janson Seah told TechCrunch that StaffAny is used by companies with more than 30 employees and serves customers ranging from single outlets to chains with more than 1,000 employees. “While we serve small businesses perfectly, there is much greater value for aspiring SMBs where work processes need to be optimized with data and visibility,” he said.

Prior to integrating with the platform, many of StaffAny’s customers, who work primarily in the restaurant or retail industries, used spreadsheets, punch cards, or apps that don’t sync rosters, payslips and leave management like StaffAny does. The software also offers management and workers the ability to communicate in real time.

Its features include an online shift calendar that allows managers to view staff schedules at different outlets and forecast where workers might be needed and labor costs for the next week. Empty shifts are automatically scheduled and staff members are immediately notified of changes to their schedules or requests for additional shifts. They can clock in and out through StaffAny using their smartphones, overriding punch cards or manual logins, and payroll adjustments are made automatically if their hours change. Staff and management can view timesheets, which helps to spot errors. This means fewer pay slip disputes.

Other features of StaffAny include those for managing leave requests and tracking employee performance in the event of an audit. To adapt to the pandemic, it has also added features for contact tracing, test reminders or vaccination status, depending on the regulations of each country.

In a statement, GGV Capital’s Global Managing Partner, Jixun Foo, said: “Although F&B is the industry most impacted by COVID-19, StaffAny has seen strong growth and unprecedented adoption among SMEs, which is a testament to its product and the resilience of its management team. SMB technology is an area in which GGV invests globally. We are excited to work with StaffAny as they grow and evolve.
