TalkTo, Inc., a Cambridge, MA-based provider of a messaging service, has closed a $3m Series A funding with Matrix Partners.
The company has also launched talkto: Boston™, a version of its messaging service that enables Boston-area residents to text stores, restaurants, salons, hotels and other businesses across the U.S.A.
Emerged in limited beta in September 2011, the app allows anyone to inquire about products and services, book appointments and reservations, or ask other questions with a text message. Users can download it from the App Store or access it via Android and other mobile devices on the Web at talkto.com.
Led by co-founder and CEO Stuart Levinson, TalkTo intends to use the capital for a national rollout later this year.
Antonio Rodriguez, general partner at Matrix Partners, is also TalkTo board member.
