💼 Opportunities
 
🔮 Our Analysis
 With many companies now taking a hybrid work approach, and many more still determining what their workplace environment should look like going forward, at least two opportunities open up that address the pain points of two different types of customers. The first improves the hybrid workers’ experience, and the second improves the hybrid companys’ decision-making experience. Scoop is addressing both of these opportunities by building tools that aim to make both running and working at hybrid companies a more pleasant experience. Its Team Sync addresses the working experience by helping team members coordinate where they work from. There’s a lot of room to expand the product down the line to further improve the employee experience. At the same time, while companies make important and potentially irreversible hybrid work changes, Scoop’s Workplace Sync analytics can help inform decisions that impact the entire company and its customers beyond. Given its current ability to build with both of these customers in mind, we suspect success on Scoop’s horizon if it is able to continue to innovate on its offerings.
