Kiwi SaaS provider unleashes potential with $4.5 million capital raising

“This will help us win further market share in Australia and New Zealand, and extend our reach to the United States and soon, the United Kingdom.”

New Zealand software-as-a-service provider Unleashed Software has announced the completion of its most significant capital raising to date, valued at $4.5 million.

Among the backers is existing investor Craig Winkler, founder of MYOB and a prominent industry figure whose influence and expertise in the business management sector spans decades.

In addition to building out its product strategy and development team, the capital will also strengthen Unleashed’s trans-Tasman operations, particularly in sales and marketing, and allow it to invest further in its expansion in the United States.

“With the continued support of our stakeholders, we have spent the last 12 months rounding out our executive leadership team, improving our software to ensure customers have the features and functionality they need, and delivering a great support experience,” says Gareth Berry, CEO, Unleashed Software.

“The additional funds serve as a platform for growth for the 2016 fiscal year. Now it’s all about executing on our product roadmap, as well as our marketing, channel and influencer programs and campaigns.

“This will help us win further market share in Australia and New Zealand, and extend our reach to the United States and soon, the United Kingdom.”

Berry says this round of capital raising follows a successful six months during which Unleashed employed its first US staff, appointed a new Chief Technology Officer, Lisa Miles-Heal and Chief Marketing Officer, Anthony Mordech, and launched its integration with Intuit’s QuickBooks Online business and financial management software.

The company was also recently named finalist for the NZ Hi-Tech Emerging Company of the Year Award and Manufacturer’s Monthly Endeavour Award in the application category.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
