PALO ALTOCalifornia. , June 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Schedule.ioa fast-growing worker compensation and payroll startup, today announced that it has raised $27 million in a Series A financing led by Glilot Capital Partners via its Glilot+ seed fund. Additional backers include previous investors Uppercase letters, MS&AD companies, J Ventures and new to this round, Vintage Investment Partners and Result companies.
Series A funding will help Hourly expand beyond the state of California, where it was founded. The company aims to expand its insurance platform nationwide.
Hourly’s user-friendly platform merges three complex products: time and attendance, payand work accident insurance— in one.
Traditionally, companies use annual payroll estimates to calculate workers’ compensation premiums. But changes in personnel, workload, hours or compensation often cause these estimates to vary considerably from reality. As a result, companies overpay or underpay their workers’ compensation premiums, often by tens of thousands of dollars.
Co-founder and CEO Tom Sagui experienced these problems when he ran a small business himself. He partnered with Shay Litvaka technologist with more than 20 years of experience, to solve these problems and revolutionize the $50 billion workers compensation industry.

The platform frees up thousands of hours spent on administrative work, eliminate surprise bills and ultimately improve liability We are excited to join Hourly on its journey to completely revamp the workers’ compensation insurance industry.”
