BabelBark, a Newton, Mass.-based pet related software developer, completed $2.8m Series A funding.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to expand its reach and services globally, invest in additional marketing resources and recruit top talent.
Led by Roy Stein, founder and CEO, Bill Rebozo, founder, product and market strategist, and Kerri Marshall, D.V.M., M.B.A., chief veterinary officer, now BabelBark connects 65,000 plus pets with over 450 pet care businesses (i.e. veterinary practices, trainers, shelters, groomers, walkers, pet sitters, boarding kennels, and more within the pet care community) through a digital platform with a mobile application. It offers activity monitoring, connection to primary care and emergency veterinary services, medical records and medication reminders, regional/local pet service providers and tailor-matched products to prescriptively and proactively help pet parents monitor and manage their pet’s unique needs.
The company provides:
– BabelBark, a mobile app for pet parents to manage their pet’s records, medications, diet, activity and more. The app is now available for download in the App Store and Google Play for free.
– BizBark, a customer relationship management (CRM) platform that enables independent pet businesses such as groomers, shelters, trainers, walkers, boarders, and other pet care businesses to manage and market their products and services and keep top of mind with their customers.
– BabelVet, a platform which integrates with a veterinarian’s practice management software allowing the ability to share a pet’s full profile and health care stats. Everything from exercise levels to diet data to medicine dosage to vaccination records, all in one place. It also allows veterinarians to connect directly with their patient’s health data to deliver a more complete level of care.
The company recently announced expansion of its mobile app and software platform into English-speaking countries and territories including Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, and the U.K. in December 2017.
