What is it with tech company founders and cramming a whole pile of awesome into one week?
Earlier this week cloud-based POS provider, Vend, announced a $2m funding round. The timing of this funding is excellent for the Auckland & San Francisco based start-up. The Vend team has established a flame in the cloud-based POS space, with their software now used by more than 11,000 registered account in over 80 countries. With this funding, Vaughan and his team will pour some gasoline onto that flame & the team here at Timely are very excited about watching the Vend fire spread! I bet the investors are excited too.
If that wasn’t enough for this week, Vend have today announced a partnership with global payments giant, PayPal. This is another super smart move which will no doubt hit a sweet spot for existing and future customers. What I like about this announcement is that Vend haven’t just announced the capability of taking PayPal payments – they have presented a real customer story showing how it is already working well for a customer in San Francisco. The video sums it up perfectly so I’ll let it do the talking:
Congrats to Vend for this week – enjoy your Friday beers, you’ve earned them!
