Synchronica Raises $10M

Synchronica announced it has just raised $10M in equity funding:

  • Total raised to date including the $10M is $18M.
  • The $10M will be used for product integration, and for growth in emerging markets, such as China, Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and Latin America.
  • Interestingly, Synchronica tied the funding to an acquisition. This appears to have been an effective technique. Without the linkage, Synchronica might well have found it hard to raise financing, or the terms might have been much less favorable.

For a detailed analysis, see our report Synchronica Gets Funding: Transaction Assessment.

About Ferris Research

Ferris Research studies messaging, and the control of electronic information. More specifically, we help IT staff evaluate and implement products and services that:

  • Provide messaging and collaborative technologies
  • Archive electronic information
  • Ensure compliance with corporate policy, industry regulations, and laws
  • Facilitate e-discovery, and contain its costs
  • Reduce the dangers of information leaks

Email is the most important type of electronic information that requires control today. Other important types include instant messages, Sharepoint teamspaces, images, voice, video, and miscellaneous desktop files.

We've been in business since 1990--longer than any other analyst firm in our field:

  • Clients include 300 of the world's 1,000 largest organizations, and computer vendors from the largest corporations to small startups
  • While other analysts have come and gone, we've published more than 200 formal reports and 1,100 short bulletins
  • Our news service covers more than 2,000 highly specialized announcements annually
  • We have nine experts in our research team, sharing many decades of experience in our core competencies

In short, our technology and industry depth helps you understand today's products, where they've come from and where they're going.
