With it, enterprises can digitize their procedures and have their mobile workforce collaboratively execute them for the first time. Parsable is backed by Lightspeed Venture Partners, First Round Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, Google Ventures, Kleiner Perkins, Schlumberger Technology Corporation, Saudi Aramco Energy Ventures, and a handful of angels.

Mr. Erlich is also a Managing Partner at Outlier Ventures (a micro seed fund), and a founding Venture Partner at MuckerLab, Los Angeles' premier startup accelerator. Prior, Mr. Erlich was the Founder & CEO of ChoiceVendor, which was acquired by LinkedIn (LNKD) in 2010.
