The VoloMetrix leadership team team includes Natalie McCullough (Chief Revenue Officer), Nimrod Vered (VP of Engineering), Chantrelle Nielsen (VP of Product), Ahmed Quadri (VP of Customer Solutions), Eileen Conway (VP of Marketing), and Peter Cullen (Chief Privacy Officer). Jim Simons, Managing Director of Split Rock Partners, joined the VoloMetrix Board of Directors following the series B funding round.

Technology

VoloMetrix extracts and analyzes anonymous data from company email, calendar, social platforms and line-of-business applications. They enable executives, managers and individuals in any organization to clearly understand where their teams are focused and how they can work together most effectively through easy-to-use, interactive dashboards.[5] The application and integrated professional services work together to diagnose and resolve company-wide issues such as tracking bottlenecks,[6] and providing a more dynamic view of the organization than a classic org chart can provide.[7] VoloMetrix solutions can be used to change the way functions across the organization manage their business, including HR, Finance,[8] and IT.[9][10]
