Selligy lands USD2.8 million in Series A round
Customer relationship management (CRM) app maker Selligy recently landed USD2.8 million in a Series A financing round led by Draper Fisher Jurvetson (DFJ). Alchemist Accelerator, Salesforce.com, and other angel investors also participated in the round. This was according to a report published by VentureBeat.
Selligy is an app that automates sales processes designed for salespeople. The company will use the new capital to bring the iPhone app to other mobile gadgets such as the iPad and Android gadgets. In addition, the app maker plans to market an improved version of its service called Selligy Enterprise, the report said.
The CRM app works by tapping into your contact, location, and calendar and syncs the information with Salesforce's Sales Cloud. That way, Selligy can easily track you when you finish a transaction and ping you with some inquiries. The service then feeds the data you gave into the system. The software is listed at a monthly price of USD35 per user, said the report.
Currently, Selligy employs five workers but plans to hire more after this funding round. DFJ investor Josh Stein will become part of Selligy's board of directors, VentureBeat reported.
