Appirio, a San Mateo producer of online pay-as-you-go (software-as-a-service) applications for Salesforce.com and Google Enterprise, has raised just over $1 million in a first round of investing from Salesforce and a number of other investors, VentureBeat has learned.
In an interview with VentureBeat, co-founder Narinder Singh claimed that Appirio servers more than thirty major customers, including big names like Qualcom and Honeywell. Singh said new funds will be used to accelerate Appirio’s growth and further develop their core products. They also plan to invest the money in products soon to be released that will connect Salesforce.com and Google.
