Albato, a no-code service for all integrations, raised $ 1 million from the co-founders of the Borzo courier service (formerly Dostavista) Alexander Shamis and Mikhail Alexandrovsky, as well as top managers of several large companies, the company's press service reported.
The funds raised will be used to enter and strengthen its presence in new markets in Latin America, primarily in Brazil. Currently, a team is being formed that will be responsible for business development in this region.
Today the main markets for Albato are Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Belarus. More than 1,500 companies use the service.
Brazil was chosen as a starting point due to the active development of the local IT industry. Many local applications and services are emerging in the country, and the service intends to take advantage of the possibility of rapid localization and integration of regional IT products, which Albato calls one of its main advantages over competitors.
Albato has already integrated a number of Brazilian applications - b2b platforms for communication with customers Zenvia, LocaSMS, Mobizon, SMS Digital, service for automating marketing mailings E-goi, customer complaints service Hug.me and financial and accounting system ContaAzul.
As noted in Albato, positive feedback was received from users, after which it was decided to enter this market in full.
Albato was launched in 2018 by Calltouch founder Mikhail Fedorinin. The service allows you to connect CRM, analytics, marketplace, warehouse and many other systems without developers in 5 minutes.
