Enterprise communication tool, JANDI, made specially for Asian markets has raised $2.5 million in fresh funding through parent company, Toss Lab. Along with prior funding, the total amount raised comes up to $4.5 million. So what does this mean for investors? JANDI plans on becoming a messaging tool for business in Asia – not only that, it wants to be a platform.
Clients currently include 30,000 businesses from Japan, Taiwan and South Korea – YelloMobile, TicketMonster and Mangoplate. Using JANDI, businesses can intergrate JIRA, Trello, Google Calendar and Webhooks.
Those developers who used their expertise to build JANDI have gained their knowledge through working for Naver Band prior to Toss Lab. The whole point of Naver Band was to integrate microblogging and other chat apps for companies in the Far East
So what this means for companies who adopt JANDI and the investors is that Toss Labs is using their newly gained stock capital for new hires. Already their employee base has increased from 10 to over 50 members, and they plan on doubling that soon.
So, apart from countries like Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, Toss Lab’s JANDI will spread it’s web to Thailand and Malaysia within the first half of 2016. Let’s see how far this goes!
