Working from his one-bedroom apartment, Martin Ouellet founded Taleo, a HR software that revolutionized recruitment in the early 2000’s.
From there he met and bonded with several coworkers who would later become the core team members he would work on several business projects with.
A few of these projects put him in the HR manager’s seat and allowed him to experience how painfully time-consuming employee scheduling truly was. As a visionary with a pain point to solve, he decided to create his own side project: a sports app that allowed him to manage his hockey team’s replacements.
As a promising app that eliminated the need to find replacements, it sparked the interest of several long term collaborators who came along and helped adapt it in becoming Voilà!: a fully integrated employee scheduling and workforce management app.
Armed with insights earned from our team in discovering the workforce challenges various industries faced, Voilà! was built to help businesses save time managing schedules while empowering employees the flexibility to create their own schedules.
After seeing the traction gained from landing several major US/Canada based accounts and the team’s acute understanding of the evolving workforce, Voilà! closed a first round of funding from major investors in 2019.
We’ve built an amazing team and continue to eliminate the scheduling headaches by helping businesses across North America spend less time managing schedules and more time growing their business.
It’s time to say goodbye to manual spreadsheets and go digital with Voilà!
