However, in Integrate we saw the leader in a critical final piece of optimization needed by the industry. It’s remarkable growth and significant enterprise adoption from some of the leading B2B brands in the world underscores this. Our diligence confirmed its product is world class and we consider its executive team one of the strongest we’ve backed,” said Ryan Pollock, managing partner at Iron Gate.
