QuickMobile, which creates apps for meetings and events, picked up an additional $3.2 million in funding from existing investors BDC IT Venture Fund and Vancity.

The Vancouver-based company, founded in 2006, intends to use the funding infusion to continue its international expansion and to add resources, including hiring an additional 20 people to bolster its staff of 145, QuickMobile says.

“We recognized a void in the marketplace for an enterprise-grade mobile event technology platform that allows companies to develop fully customized, fully branded meeting apps for any and all of their events,” says Patrick Payne, QuickMobile’s CEO. “QuickMobile’s multi-event platform allows organizations to connect with their employees, customers, partners and other stakeholders in new and engaging ways. Our investors recognize this and fully support our innovation and expansion plans.”

The company says more than 25 Fortune 1000 corporations have purchased its multi-event platform, launched in November 2012.

QuickMobile has raised $9.1 million in funding to date, including equity investments.
