VoloMetrix, an enterprise analytics application that helps businesses streamline their communications and performance, has raised $1.6 million in Series A funding led by Shasta Ventures.
VoloMetrix essentially analyzes various business applications to help managers understand what’s going on in a business. Specifically, VoloMetrix ties in with collaborations systems, email, IM and CRMs to pull in data from employees and give managers actionable insights into what works and what doesn’t.
VoloMetrix currently support Microsoft Exchange and Google apps, and can tell businesses what the best sales teams doing differently than everyone else when it comes to communications or, how much effort is going into product development. Other areas where the startup’s software dives deep include What topics and activities consume the most organizational time, how indirect people cost can be more accurately allocated to products and across groups and how well aligned resources are to the best customers vs. worst.
As CEO and founder Ryan Fuller explains, VoloMetrix doesn’t want to be a big brother type of application. The startup aims to replace the data gathering process that consultants often have to go through in order to help their clients (e.g., tons of interviews, surveys, etc.).
