Mobile, provider of the MobileCloud™
Platform and integrated mobile application quality suite, today
announced it has raised a $20 million growth equity investment from new
investor FTV Capital, with continued participation from existing
investors Carmel, Vertex and Globespan Capital Partners. The latest
capital infusion will be used to further fuel Perfecto Mobile’s record
growth and continued market leadership in the rapidly emerging mobile
application quality space.
“Perfecto Mobile’s strong leadership and executive vision coupled with
its innovative technology has enabled it to become the de facto leader
in the growing $9 billion mobile app quality market,” said Liron Gitig,
FTV Capital partner and new Perfecto Mobile board member. “Many of the
world’s leading financial institutions in FTV’s Global Partner Network
validated the immense pain point that mobile application quality has
become and confirmed the significance of Perfecto Mobile’s solution and
leadership position. We are excited to partner with Perfecto Mobile in
this next phase of development and growth.”
Coming off the Company’s most successful quarter and fourth consecutive
year of over 100 percent revenue growth, Perfecto Mobile has reached a
number of recent milestones. More than 100 Fortune 1000 enterprise
customers have selected Perfecto Mobile as their solution to deliver
quality mobile applications, spanning the financial, healthcare, retail
and travel industries, and including leading brands Weight Watchers, CA,
Cigna, EMC and Prudential. In addition, Perfecto Mobile has extended its
reach with full support to the LATAM, APAC and EU markets.
“The need for a mobile app quality strategy is imperative because most
enterprises’ reputations today are highly dependent on effective mobile
apps,” said Melinda-Carol Ballou, Program Director, Application
Life-Cycle Management & Executive Strategies, IDC. “This need is
creating a fast-growing market for solutions that directly address
mobile app quality. The goal of speeding up app delivery without
compromising quality across today’s wide range of dynamically changing
devices requires mobile app quality platforms that enable distributed
teams to share real devices, run cross-platform automated tests and
integrate into their existing SDLC tools and workflow, like Perfecto
“The mobile app market is booming as consumers and enterprise employees
depend on high-quality, transactional mobile apps to optimize business
performance, increase productivity and better their lives,” said Eran
Yaniv, CEO of Perfecto Mobile. “First impressions are critical for the
success of these apps and companies are focusing on quality from the
beginning to ensure a great user experience. Perfecto Mobile is proven
to be essential in helping our customers and partners surpass their end
users’ quality expectations. Our growth, combined with the support of
our new and existing investors, solidifies our SaaS-based value
proposition and the leadership that we bring to the market. With the
rising importance of distributed application development teams and
DevOps, Perfecto Mobile will significantly enhance its cloud offering
with new services and capabilities to address emerging needs as well as
expand sales and marketing activity on a global scale.”

its growing global partner ecosystem which includes today’s top
technology leaders, prominent Global System Integrators, and emerging
growth partners. The company’s recent introduction of several
