Zapstitch raises seed funding

Zapstitch.com, a cloud integration platform, has raised an undisclosed amount in seed funding from a group of angel investors. The investors include Anupam Mittal, founder of People Group, which owns & operates various internet properties including Shaadi.com and Makaan.com besides mobile content and apps firm Mauj Mobile.

A startup by Satya P Devarakonda, co-founder of YourBus.in, Zapstitch aims to develop a cloud data Integration platform that seamlessly integrates/migrates data between various Cloud Apps like SalesForce, NetSuite, Workday, Concur etc.

Zapstitch was created to solve the problem of data integration that companies undergo when they require data from ecommerce, CRM, accounting and from other cloud based apps. The app steps in to integrate the data from these various Saas based apps and help companies manage their files. To begin integration, users have to log in to the apps they use, select the business entities they wish to integrate and select the frequency of synchronisation. Once the source and target apps are identified, it pulls in the data from the source to load into the target app. Users can also use it to schedule syncs at any particular time – hourly, daily or on demand.


The investment will be used by the company to grow core team, build product and extend Sales & Marketing activities. “To reach out to more customers, we are exploring active partnerships with Cloud business app vendors, CPAs, and system integrators etc. We aim to achieve 1,000 paying customers by Dec 2014.” said Satya.
