Mumbai-based big data analysis firm Peel-Works has secured a $2 million investment from IDG Ventures India and Inventus Capital Partners, reports The Economic Times. The company had previously raised $1 million from Indian Angel Network back in 2011.

The proceeds from this investment will be used by Peel-Networks to develop its product and analytics platform, strengthen its management team and enter new international markets. Peel-Works founder & CEO Sachin Chhabra told the publication that they expect to expand to United States and South East Asia in the next 6-12 months.

Founded in September 2010 by Sachin Chhabra, Peel-Works currently offers two main products – 9Yards and Genius. 9Yards is a salesforce management solution which provides companies analytics data on the performance of their salesforce across nine parameters like recruiting, training & development and segmentation of employee performance among others.

Genius on the other hand, analyses sales data, salesforce data and other relevant internal & external data to provide actionable insight on the employee performance, enabling companies to make quicker decision making.

Peel-Works currently counts companies like Airtel, GlaxoSmithKline, Hindustan Unilever Limited and Tata Sky among others as its clients.
