Fremont, CA: Oakland-based construction data and document search tool provider Linq, continued their partnership with Stanley Black and Decker, after committing to an undisclosed Series A funding investment as an extension to the seed funding invested last year. The company intends to use the additional funding to fuel the accelerated growth of its user-centric design approach to launch Linq, and scale the team and product to support future growth.

Over the last few months, during the beta testing stages, the company has seen positive feedback from its users. Trade contractors have successfully used the platform on dozens of projects since their launch. "LINQ has made amazing progress over the past 18 months by building a high performing team and taking an extremely disciplined approach to building a solution around our customers' needs and wants. Their early market traction is impressive, and we are optimistic about the future of this new venture." Kevin Lemke, VP, Innovation Strategy at Stanley Black & Decker.

The tool closes the divide between the people creating data and those who need t access it by giving everyone the power to retrieve the most relevant and current information instantly.
