Clickability Closes on $8M in Funding, Makes Executive Appointments
Second round boosts equity financing to $15.6 million.
San Francisco-based Clickability, a content management solutions provider, has capped its second round of funding, securing $8 million from Shasta Ventures, with additional investment from Convergence Partners, which led Clickability’s first venture capital round.
Clickability offers software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform for Web content and serves publishing clients such as Dwell, PennWell, Editor & Publisher, Adweek.com and Wall Street Journal.
Pricing packages for smaller publishers range between $40,000 and $50,000 but Clickability CEO and founder John Girard says the automated functionality of Clickability’s cmPublish and its accessibility for non-technical staff should be weighed against having to hire another full-time online/IT staffer.
Clickability has also launched CMS Success, a social network for customers, partners and employees to exchange ideas and best practices.
Meanwhile, Clickability expanded its executive team, naming Robert Carroll (a former executive with AOL, ZDNet and Eastman Kodak) as vice president of marketing; and hiring Pat Schoof (formerly of Shutterfly) as vice president of human resources; and Amy McCarthy (formerly of VegaStream Inc. and OpSource) as director of channels.
