Updated story: Fleet management and predictive analytics platform Fleetx.io (also known as Fleetx) has received $2.8 million ~ Rs 21 crore as part of its Series A round led by Singapore-based venture capital firm Beenext alongside existing investor India Quotient.
The Gurugram-based startup has also raised funds from individual investors including Kunal Bahl, Rohit Bansal, Rajesh Ranavat and Rohan Ranavat.
This is the third external round for the two-and-half-year-old startup. Earlier, it had raised an angel round in 2018 and an undisclosed pre-Series A round in February last year from LetsVenture and India Quotient.
The startup will deploy the fresh capital to enhance product and tech, hiring talent and expand operations in other cities.

Founded by Vineet Sharma, Abhay Jeet Gupta, Udbhav Rai, Parveen Kataria, and Vishal Misra, the company runs four flagship products — Fleetx Pulse, Easy, Drive and Finance — to help fleet owners boost their efficiency and safety.
