Spun out of BackOps, Scalus Redefines Communication and Transparency in Today’s Modern Workforce


Scalus, the communication and workflow management platform designed for the future of work, today announced its public launch and the general availability of the Scalus platform. Spun out of BackOps, the leading back office management solution, Scalus turns conversations into actionable, repeatable, automated tasks across apps, teams and organizations, adding accountability and oversight long missing from the other collaboration platforms at scale. The company has received $10 million in funding to-date from Google Ventures, SherpaVentures, DCVC, Max Levchin and others.

“Today’s generation grew up on Facebook and demands immediacy and transparency as a default condition. We saw how scaling a business was nearly impossible based on the new way we work, so we created Scalus,” said Kristen Koh Goldstein, founder and CEO of Scalus. “The proliferation of cloud apps and distributed teams has exposed how workflows and business processes are siloed. We developed Scalus to help organizations connect disparate systems, easily scale their distributed labor workforce and ensure that teams stay productive and effective.”

The Scalus platform allows companies to automate distributed systems required to scale effectively, automatically folding in daily activity and workflow. Compared to other collaboration and task management products on the market, Scalus is designed to uncover the real value of work. The platform strengthens accountability, connects the dots between the entire business process, automates and audits task management and lets workers easily alleviate bottlenecks at all levels of an organization.

“Our team manages a wide range of complex processes that demand precise and consistent execution. Scalus consolidates our checklist of activities into one place, allowing all constituent parties to contribute, and provides transparency into our workflows, which will continue to help us scale rapidly and reliably,” said Allen Manser, Venture Hacker at AngelList.

The average employee uses more than five applications, feeding the misunderstandings and bad communication that cost businesses nearly $39 billion per year according to the Holmes Report. By coordinating disparate applications across teams and organizations, Scalus sets businesses up for the clear and immediate communication crucial for growth and success. It is specifically designed for companies that need to scale quickly and gain control of distributed operations across teams and organizations for the entire customer lifecycle.

Key features and benefits of the Scalus platform include:

  • Ability to track and manage recurring and repeating tasks
  • Visibility into every task to identify bottlenecks, take action and eliminate dead-end workflows
  • Bi-directional task management across the internal systems and corporate email
  • Transparency across and at all levels of an organization
  • Transform lists of tasks into a repeatable process to improve efficiency and scale
  • Integrate with communication platforms such as Slack and Chatter
  • Collaborate with internal and external teams without having to be a user
  • Immediate auto-generating audit trail for regulated industries
