Austin, Texas – Handshakez, a new class of front end enterprise applications built around the customer has raised $3.6 million of series A funding led by Austin Ventures and backed by First Round Capital, FLOODGATE, CrunchFund, Valhalla Partners and Thinktiv.

“The act of shaking hands is as old as commerce itself — and signals engagement, trust and balance between two people,” said Handshakez co-founder and CEO Jason Wesbecher. “This engagement has been under enormous strain in the last two decades by CRM technologies that have not kept up with the needs of the modern customer. The term CRM itself is wildly out of touch: customers don’t want to be managed, they want to be engaged. Handshakez is solving this today by humanizing and simplifying front end processes to put the customer at the center of the relationship.”

Handshakez provides enterprise level tools which collaborates analytics platforms and email to build a better business relation and form a new analytics system that can predict and drive customer success.
