CRM provider Contactually raises $2M more in seed round

Cash will help startup build out its engineering team and market software

After raising $1.5 million in March 2013, customer relationship management provider Contactually announced today that it has raised another $2 million in a seed funding round, money it will use to build out its engineering team and market its software.

Contactually, which launched in 2011, claims that it now has 7,500 customers in over 100 countries and has grown to 40 employees.

The Washington, D.C.-based firm’s CRM platform syncs with a number of other sources, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Gmail, Google Contacts, MailChimp and BombBomb, to help brokers and agents manage their contacts.

“We saw Contactually as an explosively growing service that fills a clear customer need, and our syndicate wanted to work alongside the already strong and diverse group of investors,” said Gil Penchina, whose AngelList syndicate is one of the investment groups participating in this round, in a statement.

Other groups and individuals participating in the funding round include existing investors Berlin-based Point Nine Capital, 500 Startups and Boston-based Boston Seed. New investors include Washington, D.C.-based groups Crystal Tech, Middlebridge Partners and Middleland Capital.

In September, Contactually rolled out a dashboard that gives brokers a window into how their agents are using the platform — including the number of sign-ins and follow-ups they make. It signed up large Southern California brokerage First Team Real Estate in September.

Contactually’s enterprise-level accounts go for $111 per month per user. Team accounts go for $39.99 per month per user, while individual accounts cost $19.99 per month. When set up for annual billing, users receive 10 percent off these standard prices.

Contactually joins other real estate firms who have raised cash this year. CRM and marketing tools provider BoomTown raised $20.1 million in September. DocuSign raised an eye-raising $85 million in March to build out the transaction management portion of its business.
