Empowering Frontline Workers: GYBE

3 min read

In a world where digital transformation is reshaping industries, the plight of frontline workers often goes unnoticed. GYBE, a stealth company in the digital mobility space, is stepping in to bridge this gap and revolutionize the way connected frontline workers operate. 

GYBE is on a mission to empower millions of frontline workers by reimagining how to build, deploy and scale digital work-day tools. Its founder, Matias Troccoli is a repeat entrepreneur and technologist. His previous endeavor, NEXT Biometrics, where he served as chief technology officer, successfully completed its IPO in 2015.

By providing a platform for digital work-day tools, GYBE is ushering in a new era of efficiency and connectivity for those who have been traditionally underserved by technology. 

The Frontline Worker Dilemma

A staggering 80% of the global workforce is made up of frontline or critical industry workers. These essential employees are often deskless, lacking access to the digital tools that their office-based counterparts take for granted. People often manage vital information, such as checklists, instructions, alerts, and crucial data, using paper or outdated legacy systems. Surprisingly, an astounding 83% of surveyed workers still rely on paper-based processes, creating an immense opportunity for innovation.

Luckily, industries across the spectrum are accelerating their digital transformation efforts, driven by investments in cloud computing, data analytics, automation, and infrastructure. This includes a reported 31% increase in spending on deskless technologies.

GYBE’s Work

In order to address this pressing need, GYBE is building a scalable platform that empowers essential industries to digitize their operations down to the last-mile. GYBE’s platform has a wide range of applications. This makes it suitable for enterprises in critical sectors such as supply chain, manufacturing, healthcare, and hospitality. GYBE’s solutions  serve IT/OT teams within these industries who are keen to digitize their frontline worker operations. 

As a result, GYBE helps improve worker efficiency. This includes automating processes, reduce time to revenue, and even facilitate the deployment of smart worker safety solutions. This transformative technology empowers frontline workers to operate at their best and enhance their overall operations.

Looking Ahead

Even though its platform has broad applications, GYBE is focusing its go-to-market strategy on the greater supply-chain and manufacturing sectors. The company was recently selected to join the Washington Maritime Blue Economy Accelerator, a program sponsored by the Port of Seattle and the Washington State Department of Commerce. This initiative has allowed GYBE to engage with prominent companies in the maritime industry and supply chain.

GYBE is also working with public and private entities to advance digital transformation in the manufacturing sector and engaging with select industries as part of its Early Access Program.

GYBE is an FN Fund portfolio company. Headquartered in San Francisco, FN Fund is a seed-stage venture capital firm affiliated with Founders Network (FN). To learn more about FN Fund, click here
