Tokyo-based pLucky, the company behind service analysis platform Logbook, announced today it has fundraised an undisclosed sum from Japanese internet company Adways (TSE:2489) and startup-focused investment firm Global Brain.

Logbook helps internet companies to conduct a data-driven improvement on their web services, offering easy-to-use tools for service analysis such as auto-setting performance indicators and object values in addition to proposing countermeasures for improvement according to the web service category.

Since its launch in Alpha version back in April, pLucky has improved Logbook for almost a year and acquired over 300 users.

Supporting mobile apps

Using the funds, pLucky plans to enhance the Logbook platform to service analysis in the mobile app space. While there are an increased number of players offering service analysis platforms for web services, very few platforms support mobile apps.

In view of the recently increased number of web service companies developing mobile apps, pLucky wants to enhance Logbook so that people can easily make service analysis for their mobile apps without expertise. Following adding mobile app support to Logbook earlier this month, the company started accepting sign-ups from Android and iOS app developers.
