ResponseTap Secures Growth Funding from Beringea and Eden Ventures

ResponseTap, the market leader in call tracking and analytics, has secured £4m of Series B funding. This funding includes £2.5m from Beringea, which manages the ProVen Venture Capital Trusts, and £1.5m from Eden Ventures. ResponseTap will use this investment to accelerate expansion in the U.S. and to continue support for its UK development team.

Since its first external funding round in 2012, ResponseTap has developed rapidly. Now the company has over 50 employees, an established U.S. presence and a solid client base. In this time, ResponseTap’s technical platform has been radically restructured following user feedback – to give clients even better insight.

ResponseTap provides agencies and brands with granular data about the journey of a web visitor leading up to, during and after a phone call to a business. This insight enables its clients to analyse and improve the efficiency of their marketing activities. ResponseTap’s data can additionally be integrated with other tools including web analytics, bid management, CRM and call centre infrastructures. This then improves return on investment on marketing spend and allows for a better understanding of the customer journey through multiple customer touch points - including the telephone.

Stuart Veale, Managing Partner at Beringea, who will join the ResponseTap board, commented: “ResponseTap has developed a product that will lead the next generation of call analytics. As more expensive and more complex products are increasingly sold online, we believe that the importance of phone calls will increase, rather than decrease, as a sales channel. ResponseTap is well-positioned to take advantage of this trend and this funding will help them build a stronger platform for growth in the U.S. and the UK.”

Ross Fobian, CEO and co-founder of ResponseTap, said: “All of this gives us the perfect springboard to continue our expansion in the U.S., to continue our technical development, increase the associated support team and to launch into Europe. We continually use feedback from our clients to improve our technology and support - a wider client base between the U.S. and the UK makes this even more optimised. We’re looking forward to seeing what insights our clients can gain with this new round of investment.”

Peter Jones, Partner at Eden Ventures, added: “We recognised ResponseTap’s potential two years ago and are delighted to continue supporting the rapid growth of this business. The company’s development, since we first invested, has been very impressive and we look forward to helping the management achieve their future expansion plans.”

ResponseTap’s technology offers accurate attribution for its clients across the U.S. and the UK. Its rapidly growing customer base includes household names such as Tui, British Gas and AVIVA in the UK and build.com in the U.S, as well as over 500 marketing agencies. It processes over a million calls a month in the UK alone.

Five years ago development was seen as a dead-end career, now it’s anything but – with an explosion in mobile and IoT initiatives increasing the demand for skilled engineers. But apart from having a ready supply of great coders, what constitutes true ‘DevOps Royalty’? It’ll be the ability to craft resilient architectures, supportability, security everywhere across the software lifecycle. In his keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Jeffrey Scheaffer, GM and SVP, Continuous Delivery Busine...
Deep learning has been very successful in social sciences and specially areas where there is a lot of data. Trading is another field that can be viewed as social science with a lot of data. With the advent of Deep Learning and Big Data technologies for efficient computation, we are finally able to use the same methods in investment management as we would in face recognition or in making chat-bots. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Gaurav Chakravorty, co-founder and Head of Strategy Development ...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
"Cloud computing is certainly changing how people consume storage, how they use it, and what they use it for. It's also making people rethink how they architect their environment," stated Brad Winett, Senior Technologist for DDN Storage, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
