Stitch, a new startup that wants to help salespeople close more deals via a mobile, productivity platform, has raised $3.25 million in seed funding from Google Ventures, SoftTech, Freestyle Capital, Foundation Capital, ENIAC Ventures and angels such as Brad Garlinghouse, Tom Conrad, and Eric Hahn.
The brainchild of a former Salesforce execs and Miso-founder Somrat Niyogi, Stitch is based on the premise that email is the lifeblood of sales. As Niyogi explains, it’s not just about sending emails, it’s about being responsive to clients and prospects on mobile phones. Stitch wants to be the mobile, sales productivity platform, that gives information, data and other intelligence to help salespeople close more deals.
Stitch allows you to integrate your Google Apps email and acts as a full fledged mobile email client. The app has a number of features including the ability to track email opens and link clicks. The app also indexes all files and attachments, making it really easy to send any files that have been sent to you via email. And you can also easily send a file stored in Dropbox, Box, Hightail, or a recent email.
In the future, Stitch will add support for Exchange and Android, and will also be integrating CRMs as well.
There are other apps out there that aim to solve some of the productivity problems for sales people including Clari, Implicit, RelateIQ , Yesware and others.
What’s interesting about Stitch is the company’s mobile-first approach to help make email for simple for sales–things like easy access to pitch decks, files, as well as the ability to track email opens are useful features for sales people.
The app is in private beta, but we have 500 invites for TechCrunch readers who want to download the app here using the code ‘techcrunch.’
