App development and testing platform Buildpan raises seed round
Indore headquartered app tools company Buildpan Cloud, which helps developers to test, integrate and deploy apps, has raised an undisclosed amount in seed round from a group of HNI (High Networth Individuals).
The investors include Yusho Kawata, partner at Elrise Corporation Inc Japan, angel investor Sunil Kumar Singhvi and a US based HNI.
Buildpan works with freelance app developers, enterprise clients as well as startups to detect crashes, bugs and device compatibility. The ‘continuous integration and continuous deployment’ as a service by the platform uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to detect errors. For enterprise clients and startups that might outsource app development, the platform also provides virtual audit reports.
“Everyone suffers from the same problem. Ultimately, your ability to engage your end users is the degree to which the app will be successful,” said Sonal Dandotia, co-founder at Buildpan.
Buildpan takes advantage of a cloud backend and an easy-to-use interface that gives developers instant feedback. This includes highlighted screenshots of apps being used and ‘instant reply’ reports that can show a video log of what the user was doing up to fifteen seconds before the app crashed. The report also tells developers which line of code need to polish.
The company currently works with Relibit Inc, Elrise, Retirely Inc, Seractive Inc and L&T among others. The company earns 60% of its revenue from Freelancers and the rest from enterprise clients as of now.
Founded in 2019 by Sonal Dandotia, Shantanu S, Virendra Chouhan and Vaibhav Tiwari, the platform is promoted by mobile and web solutions consultancy, Linkites Infotech. Founder of Linkites, Saket Dandotia holds 20% stake and is an advisor to the company.
“I felt this platform has potential to ease building and sharing apps online. Additionally, its smart AI code-analyzer will help clients who are not technical to know the quality and tech audit of the code they receive from developers,” said Yusho Kawata, partner at Elrise Corporation, Japan in a statement shared by the company.
