Visier gets $15M to bring your boss a hot, steaming cup of analytics

Workforce analytics company Visier has just raised a $15 million round of funding.

This cash infusion is the startup’s second institutional round; it was led by growth equity investor Summit Partners, with participation from repeat investor Foundation Capital.

Visier makes software for the oversight and management of “human capital” for “people that have a need to know.” If that doesn’t put you in an immediate state of bliss vis-à-vis your funemployed status, check out this demo video:

The app crunches HR data for enterprise workers into a consumer-friendly interface designed to make measuring, reporting on, and improving the activities of a given workplace easier, faster, and more accurate.

The startup says it plans to use the new funding to “fuel investments in innovation” (we’re guessing that’s longhand for “hiring more engineers”) and expanding its services into more countries.

“Visier’s first two years were spent creating a revolutionary way to approach analytics,” said Visier founder John Schwarz in a statement on the news.

“Since taking that solution to the market last year, customers have consistently told us they have never seen anything like Visier, and they are delighted with how Visier Workforce Analytics is helping to transform their businesses.”

Visier was founded in 2010 and is headquartered in Vancouver with offices in San Francisco. The company took its first round of venture capital, totaling $6 million, in September 2011.
