We’ve created the world’s first voice-controlled enterprise wearable designed for the hourly employee. From our 1.5oz wearable computer to our suite of communication and productivity applications, every part of Theatro’s solution was made to help hourly employees do more, better.
Buy the service, not the hardware.
Hardware is not immortal. Even with perfect use—no bumps, no drops, no dives into shallow water—daily wear and tear will eventually break a device down. Knowing that you’ll have to replace employee devices drives up the cost of introducing new technology, and can make it difficult to justify ROI.
At Theatro, we provide software as a service (SaaS) in a per-employee subscription format. This means that you subscribe to our service, and that’s it. We provide the devices and cover the wearable costs. If a wearable breaks, we fix it. If you decide to end service, it’s as simple as canceling your subscription—no hardware costs to cover.
No software maintenance or daily upkeep required
Scalable solution that can support millions of users
World-class security at every level of the operation
Simple to manage
Elimination of technology risk and hardware purchasing costs—you buy the service, not the hardware
Small, but mighty.
Smaller than a credit card and weighing just 1.5oz, the Theatro Communicator was designed with hourly employees in mind. Its simple, voice-controlled interface takes employees’ attention off their device and back to what they’re doing. With a single device, they can call for backup, check inventory, locate a manager, and simply communicate with a team member—enabling them to do more, better.
6-8 hour battery life
Discreet—clips easily onto belt loop or collar
Communicate in the store and across the enterprise.
By connecting store and regional management, hourly employees, and corporate resources, Theatro eliminates the challenges associated with outdated communication technology. Employees can have one-to-one conversations, share expertise and product information, support one another, and guide new teammates without having to stop what they’re doing.
No more disruptive overhead paging. No more distracting broadcasts on two-way radios (that end up being “tuned out” most of the time, anyway). No more walking to find who you need, when you need them. Just open, effortless communication.

EarBox, Content Distribution Manager, and Manger's Application
Connecting everyone, regardless of shift.
Most hourly employees don’t have a company email or voicemail, and hourly labor laws make it difficult to make sure they get the information they need if they’re off the clock.
Enter Theatro’s EarBox, Content Distribution Manager, and Manager’s Application.
Think of the EarBox like voicemail. Each employee using Theatro has their own EarBox, accessible through a simple voice command while they’re in-store. With it, hourly employees can receive voice messages directly from fellow store employees, headquarters, and district and regional management without having to rely on the store manager to distribute the information.
With the EarBox, hourly employees can receive personal messages (“A customer came at closing yesterday to tell me what a great job you did, John! Thanks for being a valuable part of our team!”), messages from team members (“John, please help Jane in shoes when you’re finished with the customer.”), and corporate announcements (“We’re recalling all of Brand X’s products due to a manufacturing error. Please remove from inventory and prepare for an increase in returns.”). When they’re busy with a customer, messages to employees will automatically go to their EarBox and notify them of the receipt of a new message and who it’s from.
Content Distribution Manager
With our Content Distribution Manager, headquarters personnel can communicate directly to the ear of store employees, ensuring vital information is communicated across the enterprise. Whether it’s new product information, executive announcements, motivational messages, recalls, or more—you send it, they receive it. You can even schedule the information so that it goes out at a certain time each day or week. After it goes out, you’ll get a report on who heard it, and when.
Our Manager’s Application is a smartphone application providing managers on the go with access to Theatro’s in-store capabilities. You can talk privately with individual employees, leave messages, update employees on important information, and provide direction while outside the store.
Indoor Location Application
Find them when you need them.
Nobody likes to wait—and when it comes to customer service, just a minute can mean the difference between a sale and a bad review on social media. To reduce wait times—for both customers and employees—Theatro provides an Indoor Location Application that enables employees and store managers to quickly find each other on the floor. Better yet, the person they’re looking for doesn’t even have to respond. Theatro will tell whoever’s looking where they are, if they’re with a customer, and if they’re available to help—reducing customer wait time and ensuring adequate associate coverage in high-value locations.
Maximize store performance.
With today’s solutions, it’s difficult to identify top performers and understand why they’re doing well. In many cases, employee recognition is limited to those the manager can see in the moment—in other words, just being in the right place at the right time.
With Theatro, you’re given unprecedented insights into what your employees do, how they work as a team, and what makes them successful. Our Employee Analytics application measures social interaction data to understand what’s impacting productivity and who the top performers are. It then performs predictive analytics, enabling you to create a streamlined repeatable model that maximizes productivity.
