SAN FRANCISCO - AUGUST 22, 2018 – Parsable, the Connected Worker Platform company, today announced that it has partnered with WEF, joining its Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. WEF’s Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution brings together governments, leading companies, and experts from around the world to co-design and pilot innovative approaches to work, as well as govern new technology.
In partnering with the WEF Center, Parsable continues to gain industry momentum following the recent announcement of its $40M Series C investment. Parsable will contribute its expertise in augmenting human workers with innovative technology, with the goal of helping them execute a larger variety of jobs more effectively and with greater precision. As the digital age continues to evolve, consumer expectations will only increase, forcing companies to achieve significantly better results while tackling even more complex, demanding work. Determining the most effective ways for human workers to leverage new technologies in order to optimize their efforts is critical.
“Driven by digital innovation, The Fourth Industrial Revolution brings a myriad of new challenges and opportunities to the workplace,” said Zvika Krieger, Head of Technology Policy and Partnerships at the World Economic Forum Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. “We’re focused on determining the most effective ways to leverage innovative technologies. Parsable has an incredible depth of knowledge in this area and we’re very much looking forward to working with them to explore best practices for the next generation of industry-leading companies.”
