San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
Perkville, a leading provider of Software as a Service (SaaS) loyalty programs, today announced that it closed a seed round of nearly $500,000 from leading angel investors including members of Band of Angels and Keiretsu Forum. This brings Perkville’s total seed funding to $1.2 million and enables the company to accelerate growth by adding sales and marketing team members and by continuing to enhance functionality in the Perkville platform.
“We developed our self-serve loyalty platform and already have over 1,000 small businesses signed up and driving retention and customer engagement with their own customized loyalty program,” said Perkville CEO Sunil Saha. “We'll be investing in sales and marketing to inform small businesses that they can have a powerful loyalty program at a remarkably low price.”
"We conducted a comprehensive review of SaaS loyalty programs and nothing compares to the simplicity and ease of use of the Perkville platform,” said Matthew Le Merle, Managing Partner of Fifth Era. "Loyalty is moving to the cloud, and Perkville has the best SaaS offering on the market."
“Perkville represents one of those rare opportunities where all of a sudden a solution that would have cost hundreds of thousands to build is now available at an extremely affordable price point,” said Perkville investor Michael Olander, Jr. who has already implemented Perkville at O2 Fitness, a chain of gyms he owns. “I highly recommend Perkville to other gym owners who have sought a customized loyalty and retention program but have held back because of cost. The potential ROI for gyms is staggering.”
