​Field2Base, the emerging Triangle firm that offers mobile forms and data solutions which recently added credit card payment capability, is raising new investment capital.

Chris Roush of North Carolina Business News Wire reports that the Morrisville-based company has raised $1.7 million in a private equity raise, according to a filing Wednesday with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Field2Base Inc. raised the money from six investors and is seeking to raise an additional $500,000.

Earlier this year, Field2Base formed a strategic partnership with Century Business Solutions to provide clients with credit card processing services and a seamless payment integration with Field2Base Mobile Forms through EBizCharge, a PCI compliant payment gateway developed by Century.
