Ryan Holmes and Steve Johnson, CEO and chief revenue officer of Hootsuite, a leading social media management platform and a Procurify client, are joining this investment round and becoming advisors of the Procurify team.

Sue Yoon, VP of finance at AltSchool, a Procurify client, said: "Since implementing Procurify, 50% of all purchasing is becoming standardized, saving our educators an hour per week of their time … In addition, all teacher procurement came in this past school year under budget."

Janz said, "We know and love the SaaS space. Procurify is positioned to become the market-leading SaaS platform for purchasing and is doing for that industry what Salesforce.com did for customer relationship management (CRM) and Zendesk did for customer service."
