Decisions, the powerful meeting management solution that integrates with Microsoft Office 365, today announces it closed its Series A Round at a $5.5M valuation, led by Skagerak Maturo Seed and existing seed investor, Holta Invest. Decisions will use the funding to continue developing solutions that enable organizations to plan, organize and run successful meetings.

This latest round of funding is a vote of confidence in the company’s direction and recent achievements.”
