Agentdesks, a mobile-only CRM platform for real estate agents, has secured $2.95 million in a seed round of funding from a list of investors that include Sierra Ventures, Cota Capital and Vegas Tech Fund.
Based in Bengaluru and San Francisco and founded in 2014, Agentdesks is an app that enables real estate agents to manage contacts, properties, requirements and communication on the go. It has interesting features that includes tracking new leads, tracking previous client interactions, personalised communication, recommending properties with shared emails and links. Agents can also make tasks and notes and combine reminders with the calendar. With its presence in San Francisco, it becomes its primary market as USA is the place where most of its 1,800 active users are based.
With the fresh funds, Agentdesks plans to improve its company’s technology and to strengthen its core team. Founded by Vijay Bharath and Sanya Gurnani, the startup has been incubated at New York-based accelerator AngelPad in late last year. The whole startup revolves around the CRM approach which manages the company’s interactions with current and new customers. With the help of technology, it organizes, automate and synchronize sales, marketing, customer service and technical support.
Agendesks is not the only player in the market. It competes with other companies in the same domain that includes HomeBuy360, a sales life-cycle management platform that connects developers, agents and buyers, 99acres, MagicBricks, PropTiger, CommonFloor, Housin and IndiaProperty.
