BetterWorks Adds Discovery, Advanced Ordering
Santa Monica-based BetterWorks, the employee perks and benefits startup headed by Paige Craig, said Wednesday that it has updated its product, adding new perk discovery features, and advanced ordering of perks. The firm--which has been in a big growth push in recent months--said it has added features which let members sort for perks based on name, distance, saving, popularity, and other factors, making it easier to find employee perks. In addition, the company said it will now allow employees to make advanced order arrangements for food, specifying the day/hour of delivery for orders directly from the site. BetterWorks has been growing its staff since an $8M funding round announced at the beginning of August; the firm's funding was led by Redpoint Ventures. Paige Craig is among the most active Los Angeles angel investors, and turned his attention to Betterworks in December of last year.
