Zoined, a Finnish company offering reporting and analytics solutions for retail and wholesale customers, has raised 155 000 euros from private investors. The funds will be used to finalize product development, strengthen the sales organization and to start preparations for internationalization. Offered as a plug’n’play cloud service, Zoined’s solutions are affordable even for small and mid-sized customers and help them optimize their sales and maximize profit.

Zoined’s new generation fact based analytics service gathers store and product specific data on sales which allows the customer to react fast to deviations in expected sales, categorize customers into segments and identify hidden sales potential. Zoined was established in 2011 and its founders have over ten years of experience in retail and wholesale business, data warehousing and analytics.

“Large retail corporations have been analyzing the data produced by their ERP and Point of Sales systems for a long time. Thanks to our plug’n’play cloud service, similar analytics and reporting tools are now available to smaller companies fast and without a complicated and costly implementation process. Our new investors are among others Petri Hakanen, an expert in analytics and business intelligence and a Finnish startup accelerator Vendep. Mr Hakanen will join our board, and Vendep has provided hands-on help in focusing our business model and developing our online service,” says Atte Roine, CEO and co-founder of Zoined Oy.
