In his 2.5 years as CEO of Conga, a document and contract automation platform, Schiltz has continued to work his magic. The company achieved 100% growth from 2016 to 2017 and more than $50 million in annual revenue, he told Business Insider. Schiltz said he expects to surpass a $100 million in revenue this year.
On Thursday, Conga announced its latest achievement. The company raised $47 million Insight Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures, both existing investors. Including this round, Conga has raised $117 million.
Founded in 2006, Conga sells a suite of products which make it easier to generate digital contracts and documents, store those files, and automatically update them when necessary. Unlike DocuSign, which works with a variety of business software, Conga is built directly and exclusively for the Salesforce ecosystem.
It's used by large enterprises like Qualcomm, Sony, and Hilton Worldwide, among some 8,500 other customers.
Schiltz said that funding will go toward hiring engineers and sales people at its Broomfield, Colorado headquarters.
"In one word, it's growth," Schiltz said. "We're one of the fastest growing cloud companies in the US. We're investing in people and infrastructure."
More acquisitions are also on the table for Conga, which completed three deals already this year. The company built out its a suite of products through acquisitions of Octiv, Orchestrate and Counselytic - all in the course of a single month earlier this spring.
