I am thrilled to announce our Series C funding of $28 million led by Eurazeo, along with our historical investors Accel Partners, Alven Capital, and Kernel Investments.
Eurazeo is one of the leading listed investment firms in Europe. This new funding will help accelerate our growth in the U.S. (American Express, Fast Retailing, Georgetown University and Paychex are a few of our new clients) and our revenue performance globally (we have quadruped our global revenue and have now over 400 customers).
This infusion of capital will continue to fuel our rapid expansion of sales, marketing, customer support, and R&D efforts, delivering on our vision of HR Service Delivery solutions in the cloud.
Over the last 4 weeks, we have partnered with ADP, SAP Success Factors, and Workday. These partnerships enable our customers to derive more value from their core HR platforms by easily connecting PeopleDoc’s powerful HR workflow and document management tools.
Our primary goal at PeopleDoc is to enable HR to reduce costs, focus on strategic business initiatives and delight employees by empowering them to quickly and easily access relevant HR information.
We are constantly innovating to offer our customers an exceptional experience. We could not have done it without your support and we are fully committed to your continuous success. We thank you for your confidence in PeopleDoc.
