IIBN Board Member and Future Leader, Draven McConville, Clinches $1.1 million Pre-Series A Investment Round for UK Based Business Klipboard
by Gerard Young
Founded by Irish entrepreneur, Draven McConville, Klipboard is a Mobile Field Service software platform which has recently announced a Pre-Series A investment. This has brought the company’s total funding to just over $2 million, having previously raised a Seed round of $900,000. The investment was raised from Klipboard’s existing Seattle based Private Equity group and Angel Investors and will be used to boost the growth of the start up in the UK.
Draven has recently become a board member of IIBN having been involved in the organisation for the last 4 years. During that period, he was also on the FLP program which connects experienced executives and leaders in their field with serial entrepreneurs to help develop and grow the next generation of Irish business leaders across all industries in the UK.
Draven McConville said: ‘We are delighted to announce this new round of funding and to have the continued support of our investors in enabling us to deliver our vision. Mobile apps and cloud technology will become essential for businesses with field based employees to service their customers. This investment provides us the capital to bring the next phase of development for Klipboard, ensuring we continue to deliver the best service and product to our current and future customers’.
Klipboard solves these issues through powerful and easy-to-use scheduling and workflow management, allowing field employees to complete tasks, capture data for forms and reports and view customer information and documents, all through an intuitive mobile interface. Workflows such as assessments, maintenance records, inspections, surveys or just about any other process you can imagine can be completed and sent back to the office in real time. Workers in the field are underserved with technology and this sector represents a great opportunity for transformation with real efficiency gains to be achieved for the companies.
