NEW YORK, NY, February 15, 2021: Today, Apploi (, a recruiting, onboarding, and credentialing software company, announced that it raised $8 million in funding to help revolutionize the healthcare HR tech industry. The growth funding round was led by Underscore VC with participation from existing investors including Defy Partners.

With the pandemic still wreaking havoc on the country and vaccinations rolling out nationwide, the ability to hire healthcare workers at volume is more important now than ever before. Apploiis already transforming the healthcare HR tech market with its first-of-its kind, end-to-end employee acquisition and management platform that more than 4,000 facilities are currently using. The additional funding will help Apploi accelerate its growth and enable more healthcare organizations across the country to quickly find, onboard, and manage credentials of applicants.

“What we found appealing about Apploi was the platform’s marriage of simplicity and ease-of-use with the breadth and depth of functionality. Apploi meets a need in the market and will help millions of healthcare workers find jobs this year,” said John Pearce, Co-Founder & Partner at Underscore VC.

In addition to the funding, the company has added John Pearce to its board of directors. Pearce will be joining Ben Wolin, the founder and former CEO of Everyday Health, on Apploi’s board.

“We are thrilled to have such great partners invested in our mission and growth. With the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines on the rise, and the increased need to rapidly hire a lot of healthcare professionals, Apploi is well-positioned to help health clinics streamline employee acquisition and management,” stated Adam Lewis, Chief Executive Officer of Apploi.

As a part of the company’s accelerated growth, Apploi is launching a new healthcare credential and document management product in the beginning of the second quarter of this year.

“Test groups have been extremely excited about our newest product, giving them a digital file cabinet and a way to monitor, track, and remind employees to renew licensing, vaccinations, training, and other important documents. Now healthcare organizations have a centralized and digitized location for all of their documentation—right in their recruiting and onboarding platform,” stated Danielle Lloyd, Chief Product Officer of Apploi.

Apploi’s customers have always given the platform massive praise. Faygee Morgenshtern, CEO of People Powered Nursing said, “Apploi’s platform is so incredibly effective and efficient to use on all levels, extremely simple to manage, and provides the team with tremendous visibility and oversight we need to make strategic hiring and employment decisions across many facilities. The company truly is transforming healthcare hiring through its technology.”

Apploi simplifies the recruiting and onboarding process by allowing recruiters and hiring managers to easily source and attract applicants, manage, communicate, and schedule candidates within the platform, and manage documentation and credentials along the way. With a 100% growth rate in 2020, and a full roadmap for 2021, Apploi is well on its way to being the future of healthcare HR.
