Startup Monday is ABCey’s weekly post that showcases some of the most innovative San Francisco startups! These are selected from a list of companies that we LOVE or have worked with in the past. This week, we are putting the spotlight on Workday!
What is Workday
Workday is a free cloud-based business management platform founded in 2005. It specializes in people resource management and financial management. It is an effective and affordable system for tracking employees and developing a globally manageable company structure.
How it works
Workday caters to two main end users: employers and employees.
As an employer, you can use this app to track expenses and/or assign new tasks to your team. You can also view your employees’ profiles and provide performance feedback.
As an employee, you can complete administrative tasks such as clocking in and out, tracking your pay, and requesting time off, all in one app.
Why we love it
We love Workday because it makes business management within an organization so much easier! Users can have access to work related applications and data on-the-go. What I love the most is that paycheck mistake, scheduling discrepancies can be easily detected and fixed in a timely manner. And, with the touch ID and Face ID features, users don’t need to worry about the safety of the information.

Startup Monday is ABCey’s weekly post that features some of the best and brightest companies in the Bay Area. They are often companies that we have our eye on, or have worked with in the past & would like to share with friends and followers of ABCey Events!
Who doesn’t love online shopping? At ABCey, we’re loving Operator, a messaging app that helps you shop created by Uber cofounder Garrett Camp and former Zynga exec Robin Chan! It combines the best parts of brick-and-mortar and online shopping. This app gives you the expert personal service you’d expect from an in-store employee. But, it doesn’t lock you into shopping at just one physical location. Operator also offers the convenience of shopping from anywhere, anytime via your phone. Operator can even handle the heavy research you might want to skip or not be qualified to do. Afterwards, the annoying checkout experience is handled as well.
It all starts with a message. Then, you’re directly connected you to a network of shopping expertise that will find the best products. You can request almost anything and best of all, the service is free. Operator will take in mind price ranges, problem-related solutions, and even recommendations? Well, that’s not what we usually hear nowadays when shopping online. The closest we get to getting recommendations when shopping alone online is through the reviews.
After deciding what you want, Operator also takes care of the billing process with no extra charges. Easily track your packages and ensure that your packages arrive! Also, if you need to return or exchange anything, message the Operator and they’ll be there to help.
July is already upon us and it’s almost the weekend! We hope you are just as excited as we are for Independence Day on Monday, and ABCey has you covered with all of your 4th of July events coming soon! Until then, make the most of your weekend and check out these fun Bay Area events!
