Unleashed Software Raises New Capital for Local and International Expansion

New and continued investor support sees $3 million injected into SaaS start-up’s expansion goals

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, May 11, 2016Unleashed Software, the trans-Tasman inventory management software-as-a-service (SaaS) company, today announced it has raised $3 million in capital to fuel its continued expansion locally and abroad, and support the ongoing development of its software.

This round of funding comprised a mixture of new and existing backers, including repeat investors Craig Winkler (founder of MYOB and prominent industry figure), Milford Asset Management and Sir David Levene’s investment company, Lewis Holdings. Unleashed Software has raised more than $18m in capital to date.

In addition to further developing its SaaS platform, the capital will be invested in increasing Unleashed Software’s footprint in Australia, New Zealand and the United States; the upcoming launch of a new office in the United Kingdom; and expansion into newer regions – including South Africa, India and Hong Kong – through business partners.

“Over the past 12 months, our reach into offshore markets has really picked up steam,” said Gareth Berry, Chief Executive Officer, Unleashed Software. “We have been fuelling our expansion while growing our product and this capital investment will enable us to accelerate those efforts substantially. With increasingly-global capabilities, we can now support our customers – whether they are in wholesale, manufacturing or distribution – on an international scale.

“Now that we have executed on this raise, our attention turns to extending our footprint in more established markets, while also capitalising on opportunities globally through our channel of partners and consultants. This outreach will be driven by our increased engagement and support capabilities, resulting from a more efficient allocation of internal resources.”
