“Rodio is emerging as its own company at an optimal time. As the majority of workforces switch to a mobile-first generation, companies across multiple industries are seeing a need to unify their front-line communication tools, and field-facing work systems, in an experience that is familiar for their employees,” said Dan Barton of Rodio. “Rodio understands the critical role front-line teams play in industries like retail, healthcare and hospitality. Our goal is to help companies empower these team members through connection, engagement and simplification of the day-to-day work experience.”
