Theatro, the developer of a voice-controlled mobile platform connecting hourly employees to enterprise resources, has secured investments from Honeywell Ventures and Cisco Investments. Neither company has disclosed the total amount they have invested in Theatro.
The investments by Honeywell and Cisco are designed to help maximize the reach of Theatro’s in-ear virtual assistant for retail store associates and expand the industries and markets Theatro can serve.
The voice-driven Theatro Intelligent Assistant platform, offered as a “hardware-enabled” software as a service solution, is designed to give deskless employees a “heads up and hands-free” connection to their enterprise systems and management teams.
Through its relationship with Honeywell’s Safety and Productivity Solutions business, Theatro can expand the set of options available to users of Honeywell mobile solutions. For Cisco, the investment extends its strategic vision of Cognitive Collaboration, which leverages software, hardware, artificial intelligence, machine learning and network synergies to drive interoperability and workforce transformation.
