DataSync Raises $1.2 Million to Capture Small Business Software Consolidation Market

DataSync Corporation today announced its first round of venture funding, with an infusion of $1.2 million led by members of Rain Source Capital, a respected, early-stage investment group. The new funding will enable the company to expand the services and features of its rapidly growing DataSync Suite for small business, found online at www.DataSyncSuite.com.

With more than three thousand registered small business users today, DataSync is poised for leadership in the emerging software-as-a-service (SaaS) small business marketplace. DataSync is the developer of DataSync Suite™, a small business software platform that integrates core applications including SugarCRM, Quickbooks®, Zimbra® (mail/calendaring) and Drupal® (website management) into an open source software-as-a-service web portal. DataSync Suite leverages the benefits of open software to provide an easy-to-use, single user sign-on, data syncing between applications and a user administration console, all as a cost-effective cloud-based service.

Today, DataSync also announced its partnership with SugarCRM, the open platform on which the DataSync Suite is built: http://www.datasyncsuite.com/media/press-releases/october-6-2009/sugarcrm-partnership.

Through its partnerships, DataSync helps small businesses focus on their customers by connecting email, contacts, calendars, accounting software and websites to a central Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system. The software eliminates dual-entry, simplifies order processing and automates sales processes. DataSync’s entire software suite is a cloud-based service that is accessible from any web browser or mobile device, and can be connected to desktop applications such as Microsoft Outlook. Overall, DataSync Suite eliminates costly and complicated internal IT infrastructure for small businesses and provides them with a single robust software platform on which to run their business.

“The additional funds will enable DataSync to continue to extend integration of key business applications including SugarCRM, QuickBooks, Zimbra and Drupal, while offering a hosted solution aimed at the small business marketplace,” said Mike Vetter, co-founder and CEO at DataSync. “This new financing will enable us to strengthen and expand our infrastructure to support the innovations and features demanded by our rapidly growing user community.”

“I am excited to support DataSync in its efforts to develop a hosted SaaS solution specifically targeting small businesses, because small businesses are having a very challenging time of managing and integrating today’s rapidly changing software and IT services,” stated Craig Anderson, Chairman at DataSync. “DataSync has proven it can meet the growing demand for integrated small business software by assembling over three thousand users in a relatively short period of time. The Board is confident that the DataSync management team has the passion and experience needed to propel DataSync into a leadership role in the small business SaaS market.”
