VC Firms, Carmel Ventures and Vertex Venture Capital Invest $7 Million in Second Round of Funding for Perfecto Mobile
Based in Tel Aviv, Israel, one of the global leaders in remote access and testing solutions providers for mobile devices, Perfecto Mobile announced today that it has closed $7 million in second round of funding from the company’s existing investors, who are Carmel Ventures and Vertex Venture Capital.
Perfecto Mobile is a leader in providing remote access and automated testing of mobile devices and has a platform that is called the Handset Cloud. This service allows developers and testers to access a wide range of mobile devices from anywhere in the world by use of the internet. Furthermore, testers and developers do not need to sit in front of a computer to do the testing. Perfecto provides special handsets that both developers and testers can use to do the testing. These handsets can also allow developers and testers to communicate and collaborate from anywhere in the world and can also monitor mobile devices.
According to the CEO of Perfecto Mobile, Eran Yaniv; the team at Perfecto Mobile is excited about this new round of funding from its long term investors. In this day and age, there is a new emergence of all kinds of new mobile technologies, such as apps, app stores, and open device platforms. Though these technologies are great, sometimes they may not function properly and the need for testing becomes a major concern. Furthermore, since these new technologies are located throughout the world, the need for mobile testing devices is practically imperative. This provides Perfecto Mobile the ability to be a global leader.
According to Raina Shainski, General Partner at Carmel Ventures; the team at Carmel Ventures is confident that Perfecto Mobile is able to take advantage of the large and growing market that is unfolding in the mobile industry. Perfecto has a strong management team and a compelling service enables the company to lead the market because of its ability to increase the quality of the new mobile technologies that are becoming increasingly available to users.
According to Ehud Levy, Managing Partner of Vertex Venture Capital; Perfecto is perfect, because it has a great management team and a service that is needed and already has some well established mobile companies, such as Vodafone and Swisscom, is proof that Perfecto’s technology and service meets an unmet need in the mobile industry.
