Leanplum Announces $4.8M in Series A Funding and Adds Marketing Automation to Its Mobile Optimization Solution

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - July 29, 2014) - Mobile app analytics and optimization company Leanplum (http://leanplum.com) today announced a $4.8M round of funding from Shasta Ventures. The San Francisco-based company helps mobile app developers, product managers and marketers optimize content and messaging in real-time, providing immediate insight with powerful analytics.

"From Day 1, we've spent time with our customers to better understand how they optimize their mobile apps for better engagement, retention, and monetization," says Momchil Kyurkchiev, Co-Founder and CEO. "While A/B testing the UI of apps is important, it's not nearly enough to satisfy the full breadth of use cases our customers have in mind. With this new funding, we're able to expand our offering by launching Leanplum Marketing Automation to mobile marketers who are increasingly focused on more personalized and relevant messaging to maximize user engagement and loyalty."

Leanplum Marketing Automation is a groundbreaking new mobile messaging feature that enables marketers to create, automate and test highly targeted in-app messages and push notifications to users. The feature comes fully integrated with Leanplum's existing content management, mobile A/B testing and analytics solution and is currently available for iOS, with support for Android in private beta. This makes Leanplum the only company to provide all the features in one complete platform.

"With the flexible targeting Leanplum's Marketing Automation provides, we're able to create and automate highly personalized push notification campaigns for re-engagement," said Leslie Albertson, Sr. Marketing Manager at Mosaic. "By being able to tie our campaign performance to critical downstream performance metrics in combination with other re-marketing efforts, we've seen increases in retention and return purchases."

"We're thrilled to be backing such a talented team that is able to launch advanced solutions like Marketing Automation," says Jason Pressman, Managing Director at Shasta Ventures. "There are many companies out there focused on solving a single optimization pain point. Leanplum has clearly listened to the voices of their customers across mobile teams and built a fully integrated solution that solves their collective pain points. There's no excuse now for a team that truly wants to be agile in mobile not to use a solution like Leanplum's."

With Leanplum, mobile teams can be up and running in as little as 90 seconds, after which changes to the app can be made without additional coding or recompiling. In addition to Mosaic, the company has recently closed several high-profile clients, including Hotwire, Wanelo and GREE, and is processing billions of events per month.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
