“Our first priority within this funding is to acquire more talents for product development and build a solid pedestal for our strategic expansion in Southeast Asia in mid-2019,” said Base Co-Founder and CEO Hung Pham.

“With our products, solid team, and strategic investors, we are positive that we can be the leading SaaS platform in the region in the near future,” he stressed.

The company has developed over 20 apps that cover two verticals: human resources and productivity.

Its apps include job application tracking system Base E-Hiring, task and project management platform Base Wework, and internal request management platform Base Request.

While each application on Base platform can work separately on a standalone basis, they can also communicate freely with each other via internal APIs.

“We spend the last two years building a special model capable of integrating various apps into a centralised place. Each app will be the best solution for a single business function, and blended together to become a powerful workplace for enterprises,” Hung Pham said.

The company named VIB Bank, VP Bank, McDonald’s, MK Group, The Coffee House, and VinCommerce as their users.
