Replicon Secures $20 Million in Series A Funding

SAN MATEO, Calif., and CALGARY, Alberta – June 28, 2013 – Today Replicon, the global leader in cloud-based time tracking solutions, announced a round of funding that will help the company accelerate its already aggressive growth, expand into new markets, and further its footprint within the explosive enterprise marketplace. Replicon’s $20 million Series A was led by Emergence Capital Partners and The Social+Capital Partnership.

Replicon expects 60 to 80 percent growth by 2015, fueled by the surge in demand for cloud services in the enterprise. This round of financing will be used to support significant growth, with a focus on aggressive expansion, continued development of the company’s direct sales channel, and to extend its reach internationally into Europe and APAC.

“We strongly believe that the ways in which companies align and build their organizations are changing rapidly,” said Chamath Palihapitiya, founder and managing partner of The Social+Capital Partnership. “They are partnering with other companies and integrating outside products or services to accelerate business growth. With this growing interdependence, there needs to be a common platform that can help companies deal with increasingly complex business needs and labor practices. Replicon is poised to become this platform for the future.”

“Replicon has built an incredibly impressive and diverse global customer base of more than 7,800 customers by offering a powerful but simple-to-use solution,” said Jason Green, founder and general partner, Emergence Capital Partners. “We believe with additional capital, expertise, and resources that Replicon will be able to turbo charge its growth and leadership in a market with significant global potential. Every company with hourly workers — which is over 60 percent of the global workforce — needs a solution that Replicon offers, and we intend to help them aggressively capture this global opportunity.”

More than 7,800 customers worldwide use Replicon’s award-winning cloud-based time tracking solutions. Easy-to-use and deploy, a single platform tracks time for any business need — whenever and wherever required.

“We’re delighted to partner with such like-minded business innovators who truly understand how to take SaaS and enterprise companies to the next level,” said Lakshmi Raj, Co-CEO and Co-Founder, Replicon. “Their investment and support during this exciting growth phase will ensure that we successfully meet the growing demand for our cloud-based solutions worldwide.”
