– USA, TX – Convey, the customer-centric delivery platform, today announced $8.25 million in Series B funding from Techstars Venture Capital Fund, RPM Ventures and other investors. This latest round brings total funding to $15.75 million, and will be used to expand innovation and execution in product development, engineering and customer success, and to pursue new market opportunities beyond retail.
Convey has already exceeded total bookings from 2016, representing a 340 percent year-over-year increase to-date. The company’s customers include Build.com, BuildDirect, Power Equipment Direct, ShoppersChoice.com, and Vitalize, among others.
Convey also signed an agreement with Ingram Micro Commerce & Fulfillment, a leading global commerce and logistics provider, to integrate its Convey Engage and Convey Initiate products with Ingram Micro Commerce & Fulfillment’s First and Final Mile solution.
The relationship extends Convey’s customer delivery focus beyond retail into new verticals, while providing end-to-end supply chain visibility and management from international points of origin to final mile delivery. Early adopters of the solution have already realized improved insight and control over in-transit shipments, enabling them to proactively manage exceptions and provide consistent, positive delivery experiences.
“Convey continues to exceed expectations in developing innovative solutions that help retailers and 3PL providers improve delivery outcomes,” said Jason Seats, managing partner at Techstars Venture Capital Fund, who is joining the Convey board. “Their impressive bookings growth and continued customer momentum demonstrate the high-demand for visibility and delivery management solutions that connect the dots between customers, shippers and carriers.”
“The need to reduce operating and support costs, enhance decision-making, and synchronize processes across functions are critical drivers for supply chain technology investment today,” said Tony Grover, Managing Director at RPM Ventures. “Convey understands how to turn these challenges into advantages for their customers, and we look forward to working with them as they expand their focus to new markets.”
“Our early momentum in 2017 is a direct result of the shifting tide in today’s supply chain operations – from a core focus on cost efficiency to customer-centric decisions designed to create better outcomes,” said Rob Taylor, CEO of Convey. “This latest funding will allow us to pursue new opportunities that help the world’s largest retailers, manufacturers and 3PLs reinvent and grow their businesses.”
