Earlier this month, US-based marketing automation SaaS platform Act-On announced that it has raised US$20 million in the form of equity and debt financing from existing investors U.S. Venture Partners, Technology Crossover Ventures, Norwest Venture Partners, Voyager Capital, founder Raghu Raghavan, and new investor Beedie Capital.
The round brings the martech firm’s total funding to US$93.5 million.
According to a statement, the fresh capital will be allocated for product innovations and marketing. The firm says that it plans to put more focus on building new integrations and forming strategic partnerships with channel partners. Act-On will also develop a better post-sales experience for customers.

“For today’s buyer, a great product or service is not enough. Buyers want meaningful and authentic brand experiences before, during, and after a purchase. It has become essential that marketers evolve and drive engagement throughout the entire customer lifecycle,” said CEO Kate Johnson.
