About Us

About Peoplelogic

We built Peoplelogic.ai to make growth scalable. Peoplelogic is a platform that monitors, alerts, and predicts outcomes around immediate risks and opportunities within your business.

The reality is, business leaders and managers want to be able to use the data they have at their fingertips to make better decisions about how to run their team, but in companies of all sizes, that data is rarely consumable or actionable.

Peoplelogic.ai is the creator of the world’s first AI-augmented mission control for businesses—making growth scalable. The software uses data from the tools employees love to use to better inform leaders on how work at their organization gets done—spotting opportunities in real-time, and mitigating problems before they affect the bottom-line. Peoplelogic.ai makes that data useable, prescriptive, and actionable—without any heavy lifting. With Peoplelogic.ai keeping an eye on the health of your organization 24/7, 365—business leaders can rest easy and focus their time where it really matters.
