by Joe Panettieri • Feb 17, 2021 Zomentum, which develops a sales automation and acceleration software platform for MSPs (managed IT services providers) and channel partners, has raised $13 million in Series A funding from Elevation Capital, Accel and Greenoaks Capital. Also, Eight Roads Ventures also participated in the round. Zomentum doesn’t fit into any single, traditional software category.

Instead, the software has components to help MSPs and IT channel partners to manage sales funnels, assessments, analytics, proposals and overall sales automation. Early integrations include ConnectWise Manage, Datto Autotask PSA, Kaseeya BMS, and Syncro — a fast-growing pure cloud RMM/PSA upstart. Zomentum also integrates with distributor systems such as D&H, Etilize, Ingram Micro, Synnex and Tech Data. Zomentum Founders, Focus and
