Ciara, a Munich, Germany-based provider of a virtual assistant for inside sales reps, raised a seven digit funding round.
The round was led by UVC Partners, with participation from Interhyp founders Marcus Wolsdorf and Rober Haselsteiner, as well as entrepreneurs Christian
Mangstl (Scout 24) and Felix Haas (Bits & Pretzels, IDnow).
The company intends to use the funds for further international development.
Co-founded by software entrepreneurs Martin Heibel and Konstantin Krauss, Ciara is a digital assistant, which enables sales representatives to effectively conduct phone conversations without struggling to find the right answers or lose the thread, similarly to the assistants in the consumer market such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home.
It provides inside sales teams with interactive guides, proven playbooks, and smart objection handling, to structure their phone conversations and increase success and productivity.
