Some people got their Christmas boost earlier than usual, assuming of course, that the guys over at bestVendor are flushed with a warm feeling after a succesful funding round transpired this week. Turns out BestVendor, a platform for inter-company app-sharing via recommendations, got a generous Series A boost from RRE Ventures, Lerer Ventures, Old Willow Partners, Soft Bank Capital, and David Tisch.
The money is already allocated for ‘enriching’ the BestVendor experience. Rather than simply let users share apps, BestVendor goes further by building a community that reviews and recommends such tools for prospective users, thereby generating optimum results that are in line with its goal to let people ‘discover work apps you’ll love.’
The $3 million total comes several months after BestVendor got $600,000 seed funding in mid-2011. Founder and CEO Jeff Giesea is confident BestVendor can carve a niche for itself as a resource for professionals wanting to utilize apps that suit their needs.
