This round of fundraising was led by Vista Equity Partners with participation from Neuberger Berman, General Catalyst, JP Morgan, among others.

The company intends to use the funds to accelerate market expansion and expand go-to-market capabilities, as well as to increase engineering investments to accelerate product delivery and category expansion.
