Helpdesk for internal teams

Founded in Vancouver, British Columbia, Ariglad is a trusted B2B SaaS platform for internal teams such as HR, payroll and legal to save time and focus on more meaningful strategic initiatives. Up to 80% of internal team time is spent on repetitive employee communication and complex processes (eg. Staffing requests or bonuses) - Ariglad aims to reduce that by 50%. The revolution against wasted time is led by Co-Founders Sophie and Ali. They are both completely obsessed with this problem and their customers, who have partnered with Ariglad to become immensely more efficient.

Ali Avci

After working in various high-paced engineering environments within the HR tech space, I launched Ariglad; an HR ticketing and analytics tool that helps consolidate communication. We work closely with our customers to deliver real-time employee sentiment based on their everyday questions to HR about benefits, PTO, employee relations, etc. This allows HR to proactively reduce time spent on communication, while providing data that helps them elevate HR priorities.

Sophie Wyne

Worked in a few different industries before falling for tech (such as the US Department of State, Big Pharma, etc.) and worked as a CSM in cybersecurity, primarily with Fortune 1000 CIOs. As an employee, I saw the opportunity for a better HR experience. I eventually became obsessed with reducing time spent on repetitive/complex tasks so internal teams could focus on more important things.
