Israeli Perfecto Mobile Raises $15 Million from Carmel & Vertex

Boston and Israel-based Perfecto Mobile, the makers of a testing and monitoring platform for mobile apps and websites, is today announcing it has secured $15 million in a Series C round of financing. The new funding was led by Globespan Capital Partners, and saw participation from existing investors Carmel, Vertex and the Waisbein Fund.

The company’s success is something of a viewpoint into the explosion of the mobile app ecosystem. Today, Perfecto Mobile reports having a customer base of over 600 organizations, and says it has achieved over 100% annual revenue growth. The majority of its customers are developers and SMBs, but 80% of Perfecto’s revenue comes from enterprise customers. The company counts several big name brands among its enterprise users, including ING Direct, Vodafone, Staples, Coca-Cola, Travelocity, Motorola, and Disney, for example.

Most of the apps tested on its platform are consumer-facing, but that’s starting to change. With the introduction and popularity of tablets in particular, the company is seeing its platform used for more internal-facing enterprise apps than ever before.

Perfecto’s core product is its “MobileCloud” platform, which consists of the MobileCloud-Interactive, MobileCloud-Automation and MobileCloud-Monitoring services. Combined, it’s an all-in-one solution which includes a variety of business needs, like handset validation, offshore testing, multi-vendor collaboration, stress testing, roaming testing, service monitoring, performance benchmarking, and more. The platform allows the businesses to test feature phones, smartphones and tablets in real-time, and all of the testing is done via the cloud. The company claims to cover 99% of the models on the market and can quickly add new models to the platform as they become available.
