Bangalore-based Quintype has raised $3.25 million in a round of funding from Raghav Bahl and other unnamed investors, reports Vccircle. The startup will use the funds for expanding its sales and engineering teams in both, Bangalore and California. Quintype is a product of Bahl’s own Quintillion Media, the platform which also runs the mobile focused digital venture The Quint. The Quint went live in March this year, after it had started publishing stories on Facebook as a preview to the new service in February, and publishes content on various topics like politics, technology, entertainment, business and sports. Quintype on the other hand, is looking to beat WordPress at its own game. The platform offers a software-as-a-service based product for publishers to manage editorial assignments & collaborating editing, publish to various formats including mobile phones, tablets, desktop and develop apps for iOS & Android. Other features include predictive analytics for scheduling articles, reader management, social media integration, content recommendation engine and an integrated ad engine among others. The platform also offers product placements for affiliate marketing and onsite transactions.
