Founded in 2014, Whatfix claims an increase in growth since the last two years alongside a three-fold increase in revenue and headcount. Employing about 500 employees, Whatfix has opened three new offices in the United Kingdom, Germany, and Australia. 

Munish Varma, a managing partner at SoftBank Investment Advisers, enunciated the importance of digital adoption solutions in enhancing the growth and importance of SaaS products for enterprises across the globe. 

Enterprises spend billions on applications across multiple functions, and yet employee adoption is low. Quick adoption ensures payback on software investments. Whatfix’s solutions will be a key driver for enterprises to achieve this goal, which is reflected in their growth.
