The App

The Workrise app is designed to track and improve the happiness and well-being of a company's employees. Here's how it works:


Every once in a while the employee is asked to answer a few simple questions.

That’s called a check-in.


Check-ins are uploaded to the Workrise server where the data is analyzed using advanced machine learning algorithms.

The analyzed data is returned to the user in the form of easy to understand graphs and charts.

Advanced machine learning algorithms also provide personalized insights to users based on the data gathered.

Happy and productive employees


Our Android and iOS apps allow Workrise to reliably and securely collect the data they need to transform the lives and balance sheets of the individuals and companies they work with.



A professional brand

Logo, fonts, color, business cards and a variety of document templates were created so that Workrise could project a unified professional and contemporary brand image to their prospects and clients.

Stand-out iOS and Android apps

In the competitive niche of workplace happiness we helped Workrise stand out by providing attractive, intuitive mobile apps for data collection and reporting.

A full functioning platform in less than a year

When we first met with Workrise founders Matt and Anne, they brought to us an amazing idea and a roadmap for a new company. When we were done, Workrise was a real company with a professional brand and a suite of apps.

“We started our iOS project in March 2016, and the Android version was started in May. We went live with customers at the beginning of August. Our app is quite good. A big part of the project was working on the design. Overall, I’m happy with how the app turned out.”
