What Is Crew?
Founded by entrepreneur Danny Leffel in 2015, Crew is a communication tool that aims to keep everyone on the same page. Many businesses across different industries use this app to streamline communication, drive business results and boost employee engagement.
How it Works
Crew makes team communication and scheduling so much easier! As a manager, you can assign tasks and distribute schedules with a few simple taps on the phone. You can also track performance and manage when employees are available to work. Whereas as an employee, you can request time-off, find shift coverage, share documents and track your wages, all in one app.
Why We Love It

Unlike other messaging apps, Crew respects every user’s privacy – you can network within a team or organization without having to give out your personal information.

ABCey Presents Startup Monday: Spoke
Startup Monday is ABCey’s weekly post that showcases some of the best and most innovative startups based in the San Francisco Bay Area! These are often companies that we have our eye on or have worked with in the past. Today, we’d like to highlight Spoke!
What is it?
Spoke is a workplace manager system that gives support teams within organizations a single place to manage employee requests. It includes ticketing, knowledge management, and self-service powered by artificial intelligence (A.I.). By allowing employees from different departments to communicate on a single platform, this system makes workplace management simpler and more efficient!
Why We Love It?
Spoke uses advanced technology to make work management faster and easier, and at ABCey, we love tech! This system allows companies to focus more on the work that’s important to them. It helps employees get answers quickly, so they can continue doing their jobs well. Not to mention, it’s extremely affordable with prices ranging from as little as $1/month-$3/month, depending on the type of plan you get. Now that’s a steal!
How Does it Work?
Spoke uses chatbots, which automatically respond to employees’ questions on Slack, email, SMS, and the web, so you don’t have to respond to every single request! Its ticketing system is also organized and easy to use, unlike traditional ticketing systems, giving you everything you need to manage employee requests all in one place. Not only this, but Spoke’s knowledge management base keeps tabs on all sorts of important information, no matter where it came from within the company. This way, you don’t have to worry about keeping track of it all yourself!

Startup Monday is ABCey’s weekly post that showcases some of the best and most innovative startups based in the San Francisco Bay Area! These are often companies that we have our eye on or have worked with in the past. Today, we’d like to highlight Nurx!
Nurx, sometimes referred to as the “Uber for birth control,” is a free app for your smartphone device. Essentially, this company is dedicated to eliminating the headache of going to the doctor’s office for birth control. It also means not having to sit uncomfortably in a waiting room, dodging eye contact and hoping you don’t have to make awkward small talk. Hooray!
You simply download the app and provide as much information as you can. You can also chat with a doctor if you have any questions about the contraception! Afterwards, a doctor will review it, and the prescription will be delivered to the customers house, free of charge! If you are uninsured, it’s not a problem! With the information you provide, the doctors can help you find a brand that will fit your personal preference and your budget.
Why we love it!
Nurx is a company founded by women for women! The app gives women the opportunity to access contraception, like the pill, the ring, or the morning-after pill, especially those who cannot readily access it. Also, it was created to be convenient for women who are always on the go; they help you without breaking the bank too!

ABCey’s Startup Monday: Brandless
Startup Monday is ABCey’s weekly post that showcases some of the best and most innovative startups based in the San Francisco Bay Area! These are often companies that we have our eye on or have worked with in the past. Today, we’d like to highlight Brandless!
Brandless is an e-commerce company founded in San Francisco in 2015 that recently launched in July 2017. This startup focuses on being completely transparent with customers and bringing high quality products and healthy ingredients. They sell a variety of things, ranging from household items to beauty products to food! The best part? Each product is just $3!
It’s simple. With the Brandless label, co-founders Tina Sharkey and Ido Leffler eliminated the “brand tax.” This is the hidden cost of buying from a brand that drives up the prices of products.
Moreover, the product packaging consists of the company logo and descriptors, like kosher, organic, or gluten free. This simplifies the shopping process and provides transparency for the consumer. You also have the option to “B.more” and sign up to be a member, which includes benefits, such as free shipping.
Brandless and Feeding America
Also, when you sign up to “B.more,” Brandless will donate the monetary equivalent of 10 meals to Feeding America. Brandless is partnered with Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger relief organization, and with every purchase, a meal will be donated on your behalf to those facing hunger.
Why we love it!
Brandless is very affordable and their products are health-conscious and environmentally friendly! Additionally, the company holds all their products to the highest standards. They also cater to what the community values most in their household items or in their foods. Furthermore, this startup dedicates itself leaving a positive impact on their community and the world.
