Portland, Maine-based Certify, which offers an online expense management software suite for SMBs, has announced that it has secured $1.9 million in funding from “strategic and individual” investors. These investors include FluffCo (entrepreneur Irving Levin’s investment firm), Transactis CEO Joe Proto, angel investor Esther Dyson and Alpine Meridian chief exec William Benedict.
The company offers travel expense software and other expense report solutions on-demand, allowing its client’s employees to capture expense receipts via camera phone, SMS message, e-mail, voice mail, scan, fax, or image upload, with support for the iPhone, Blackberry and Windows Mobile devices. Certify delivers its SaaS solutions both indirectly through its Partner Network and directly to corporate users and individuals via Certify.com.
Founded in 2008, the company was bootstrapped by Robert and Alan Neveu. The two men previously founded RecruiterNet, an applicant tracking software firm that was acquired by First Advantage back in November 2005.
