Zinc (formerly known as Cotap), a San Francisco, CA-based communications technology company for industries that depend on workforces outside of offices, raised $5m in funding.
The round was co-led by Emergence Capital Partners and Charles River Ventures (CRV).
The company will use the funds to continue to expand operations.
Led by new CEO Stacey Epstein, Zinc provides a newly released mobile messaging platform that provides instant communication for companies in industries like retail, hospitality, medicine, and field service, which allows mobile workers to receive the information they need to do the best job possible, no matter where they are.
Purpose-built for companies with workers in the field, the platform features:
– text, voice and video messaging tools;
– security and compliance tools; and
– file sharing, location sharing, integrations, and bots.
