I’m thrilled to share more exciting news about Clari.
Today, we’re announcing a $20 million Series B funding round led by Bain Capital Ventures — a company with deep experience helping enterprises grow. They share our vision for building the first complete mobile sales productivity platform. Also investing in this round is Northgate Capital, as well as our incredible Series A partner Sequoia Capital.
I’m just as excited (maybe more) that Ajay Agarwal is joining the Clari board. Ajay helped grow Trilogy to $300 million in annual revenue. He knows sales. He knows hypergrowth companies. And I can’t wait to have him at the table next to me. (Want to get Ajay’s perspective on the opportunity? Check out his blog.)
It’s hard to believe we debuted at DEMO only a couple of months ago. We continue to get amazing feedback from our early customers that with Clari, they really can know more, sell more, and update less.
Nutanix — one of the hottest new data center infrastructure companies — is a great example. Their reps are seeing a 15-25% increase in the time they spend in front of customers. But you don’t have to take my word for it, check out these videos to hear from Clari users in their own words.
We are ecstatic to be defining a new era in enterprise selling, and we know we’re standing on the shoulders of giants. The rise of mobile, the power of cloud, and the innovation of data science have all come together to support our vision for a more effective, more productive, (and dare I say happier) sales force. A vision that complements and enhances the massive investment enterprises have made in CRM.
If you’ve read this far, please do me a quick favor. Think about your sales priorities for this year. Do they include a sales productivity initiative? A more effective use of mobile? How about getting better insights into what’s happening — and what’s actually working — in the field?
