4th Office, a London-based company which fights against email overload, has successfully raised a second round of funding (£2.3 million). This recent round was led by new investors RSG Capital and Ben White with participation from existing investor Notion Capital.
The mission of 4th Office is to free businesses from their over-reliance on email. 4th Office aims to achieve this through a cloud workspace combining communication, task and document management tools. Check out the video below this article to get a better impression of what 4th Office is about.
Aside of the email overload issue, 4th Office also aims to solve other important issues around tasking, document versioning and review – and ultimately the fragmentation of digital IP and worker focus, attention and productivity that is at the root of the frustrations with email. The 4th Office takes minutes to set up, and is available totally free for entry-level use, with two very simple and low cost pricing tiers for business and enterprise use.
More than 15,000 people are already starting their day on the company’s platforms. The second round of funding will be used to build traction through engaging with communities in social media and word-of-mouth. The young company plans to build on its product development team who continue to evolve the product capabilities to incorporate customer and partner feedback. 4th Office rebranded and relaunched its platform interface earlier this month to great customer approval. Formerly it was known as BCSocial.
Bostjan Bregar, CEO and co-founder of 4th Office, stated: “Our vision is for every business to start their day in the 4th Office, rather than waking up to a wall of emails. We are passionate about creating a more productive, happy and creative economy for workers worldwide,”.
