Hey everyone, Sam Gimbel, Co-founder of Populace here!

We're thrilled to announce the closed beta today. Populace addresses major inequities faced by hourly workers by democratizing access to tools that help them succeed. Even as the economy has shifted towards hourly work, we still expect independent businesses to think like employees of larger companies that provide peace of mind in the form of a steady paycheck and guaranteed policy enforcement.

By leveraging AI and placing these tools in the context of the conversations workers are already having with their customers, we reduce the chances of missed appointments, cancellations, and lost payment. Populace makes it possible to manage your entire business from the SMS interface by interacting with a virtual operations manager. To start, we make it easy to get paid on time, keep your schedule straight, and plan for the future. We think you'll love what's to come.

Sign up for the closed beta now and we'll let you know when a space opens up!
