Nimbly Technologies, an enterprise software startup that offers Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), announced that it has secured $4.6 million in a pre-Series A round led by Insignia Venture Partners, a venture capital firm concentrated on early-stage tech startups in Southeast Asia. The round was also participated in by Sovereign’s Capital and Saison Capital, the capital arm of Credit Saison.

This brings the startup’s total raised capital to $5.7 million. Nimbly plans to use the fresh capital to ramp up its growth in markets across Southeast Asia

The Singapore-based startup provides services that allow its clients to gain more visibility on their business operations by automating the workflow. Through its mobile platform, companies can monitor, manage, and evaluate their operations. It aims to offer a more efficient and consistent way by providing an alternative to the traditional ways of monitoring operations such as manual checklists, messaging apps, phone calls, and emails.

Insignia Partners Ventures founding manager Yinglan Tan said, “SaaS enterprise is an emerging vertical in Southeast Asia with more businesses of all sizes and across industries seeking to transition and even upgrade their capabilities to software tools.”

Nimbly was founded in 2018 by Daniel Hazman, the company’s current CEO, and Jonathan Keith, CTO. Hazman brings in his experience as the former Senior Manager for International Sustainability & Strategy at Walmart. He also helped President Clinton establish his Indonesia country office. Keith has had about 20 years of software engineering experience and has helped develop global teams to deliver products for Japanese fintech company Monex Group.

Since then, Nimbly Technologies has grown and now serves companies across Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, and the United States. This includes an array of companies from different industries such as 7-Eleven, KFC, Toto, Cargill, Sociolla, Kopi Kenangan, Delico, Chatime, Putien, Under Armour.

With its pre-Series A fund, the company looks to speed up its growth and gain more traction in its existing markets, as well as expand its reach across untapped markets within the region.

Aside from creating a platform to prevent any inefficiencies or inconsistencies in their business operations, Nimbly also tries to help their clients keep an eye out for any fraudulent behavior in their frontline operations. It provides services such as computer vision, geo-fencing, and photo or video taking.
