Israeli remote training software firm Strigo has raised $8 million in a Series A round led by Velvet Sea Ventures with participation from existing investors.
Strigo’s Customer Training Cloud allows for hands-on remote training for software companies to deliver training and support to their customers.
The funding, which includes backing from Greycroft and Hanaco, will be invested in product development and its go-to-market strategy.
Amid Covid-19, companies are no longer able to deliver in-person training to their clients and have turned to tools like Strigo’s for help. Strigo said it has tripled its customer base since the beginning of the pandemic. VMWare and Sage are among its customers.
“Our platform enables companies to deliver and scale impactful customer training to thousands of customers each month. We are especially proud of our ability to help companies quickly pivot to remote training since the outbreak of COVID-19,” said Nevo Peretz, CEO of Strigo.
The company has appointed Michael Jaindl, formerly of Salesforce, as chief customer officer to lead its customer success operations globally.
