SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Singular, the unified marketing analytics platform for many of the world's largest mobile apps, has secured $15 million in Series A funding. This new round of funding comes from KDWC, Translink Capital, Telstra Ventures with follow on investment from General Catalyst. The San Francisco-based company, with regional offices in Europe and the Middle East, helps empower data oriented marketers at companies like Lyft, Twitter, Match.com and Zynga.

Singular has raised $20 million to date, and will use the latest round to accelerate product development and support international expansion.
Singular is the only marketing analytics platform that delivers attribution, cost aggregation, creative reporting and workflow automation, all within a single application.
"Today's digital marketers are forced to use multiple vendors and point solutions in order to do their jobs properly. From ad networks, attribution providers, to CRM and business intelligence solutions, each outputs vast arrays of data," said Gadi Eliashiv, CEO of Singular. "All of these data sets are disconnected and unmanageable. This results in marketers being unable to make effective decisions let alone calculate ROI across the whole marketing stack. So, rather than building new disparate point solutions, we tackled this huge problem in a different way. We built a platform that can collect and connect with all point solution data points with a mind to unify it and therefore enable marketers to easily uncover ROI through to making actionable marketing decisions."

- Interfaces with every digital marketing point solution and network necessary for modern day marketers to operate at scale
- Assembles the full marketing funnel for mobile and desktop marketers
- Combines attribution and cost aggregation data, creative reporting and workflow automation services in a single platform
