SANTA MONICA, CA–(Marketwired – Dec 26, 2013) – Manalto today announced a $1M seed capital round from a network of investors across the US and Australia including Europlay Capital Advisors (ECA) and Raven Capital, as well as a group of high net worth individuals from Australia, to close out its go-to-market funding. The new capital will be utilized to accelerate the innovative social ERP software solutions providing businesses with a complete end-to-end, scalable, social media content management solution. The platform comes with a free 120-day trial for large enterprises and franchises along with a free 60-day trial for SMEs. Manalto’s product features a customizable and intuitive web-based interface capable to align key enterprise operational, risk and governance frameworks and brand management practices.
“Our main focus is providing the most comprehensive social media tools for businesses, powered by innovative backend technology to fully utilize Facebook’s social marketing capabilities at a manageable price,” said Manalto Founder and CEO Anthony Owen. “With our intensive customization — unique to specific industries — we are able to address a wide array of needs and functionalities to enable scalable solutions.”
“Put simply, we couldn’t see other companies in market doing this from a genuine enterprise perspective — most are trying to evolve from SME offerings. The substantial client interest was a fast validation point as well — this round closed very quickly and Europlay Capital Advisors (LA based), Raven Capital (Sydney based), and our Angel Investors think Manalto truly has an exciting future,” said Trent Telford, Manalto’s Advisor.
