Flowers Software, a Munich, Germany-based organizational management system that helps SMB companies improve their processes, announced that it raised $3.2 million in seed funding, bringing its total raised to $3.8 million.
The round was led by La Famiglia VC, with participation from LEA Partners, Collective Ventures, and angel investors, including Personio's co-founder Ignaz Forstmeier, SAP Hybris' founder Carsten Thoma, SevDesk founders Fabian Silberer & Marco Reinbold, and Gonzalo Manrique.
With this new capital, Flowers Software will focus on its go-to-market strategy in Europe and additional product development. The company is also hiring for software development, customer success, sales, and marketing roles.
"I discovered two universal truths about organizations. First, they are all similarly chaotic - without clear oversight and tools, the right hand typically doesn't know what the left hand is doing. Information exists in silos, and processes that should be driving transparency and performance are so cumbersome that people rarely adhere to them, leading to massive errors and delays. As a result, organizations develop complex processes and use tools that aren't fit for purpose. Second, the business logic of one company is different to that of another company, no matter the size. Many companies struggle to map their processes to the logic of a given software tool and instead want a solution that easily adapts to their needs," said Andreas Martin, CEO, and Co-Founder of Flowers Software.
The company's "only pay what you use" model has attracted hundreds of customers, including children's hospitals, banks, startups, dentists, construction companies, and car dealerships.
