LDC-backed software specialist Mitrefinch is celebrating a record month after announcing the launch of its second UK office in Nottingham and the acquisition of US-based Advance Systems America (ASA).
The business, which has achieved double-digit revenue growth over the past two years, has been backed by LDC since 2016. It has continued to expand at home and overseas and now provides more than 4,000 companies with its integrated suite of time and attendance, HR, payroll and access control software.
In March, Mitrefinch launched a second UK office and moved into its new 6,100 sq. ft. space at the state-of-the-art Nottingham One complex. The move will enable the business to further support its international client base and will create more than 100 local jobs, including developers, sales, service and support staff.
Following its UK expansion, Mitrefinch announced the acquisition of US-based Advance Systems America. The business, which sells its time and attendance systems to firms across the USA, has been a partner of Mitrefinch for eight years.
Matthew Jenkins, chief executive at Mitrefinch, said: “We are committed to investing in the growth and development of our team and our expansion in Nottingham and the US represents an incredible milestone in our company’s history.
“Nottingham is a technology hotspot with a strong talent pool, so it was the natural choice for our second UK office. We have ambitious plans and are confident our move into the city will enable us to deliver our growth strategy. Alongside this, the acquisition of Advance Systems America represents another great opportunity for us to grow as a business and expand into new markets.”
Richard Ibbett, investment director at LDC, added: “Mitrefinch has grown significantly over the past two years and with ambitions for further expansion in the UK and overseas this is a really exciting time for the business. Matthew and his team have the drive, skill and determination to deliver their ambitions and we’re looking forward to supporting them further as they continue on this growth journey.”
LDC invested in Mitrefinch in October 2016 to support its international expansion and develop new and existing relationships in the UK. The business has operations in the UK, US, Australia and Canada.
