Iptor has been transformed over the past three years under the leadership of Archbold and Catterfeld. The re-branding and re-positioning of the business from IBS to Iptor has delivered exceptional progress, with the product portfolio having been transformed through the successful launch of the aperīo platform. Alongside this a move to micro-services has opened up significant market opportunities in focused verticals with high volume transactions. This has led to more than 150% increase in license and subscription growth in FY18. This has been supported by excellent momentum in the cloud business - by the end of FY19, Iptor will have almost 200 customers on the Power cloud offered through its strategic partnership with IBM.
With the business in great health the scene is now set for the next stage of growth. The investment by Bregal Unternehmerkapital allows Iptor to embark on a ramped-up strategic expansion programme, focusing on building out its leading position in the Technical Wholesale, Pharma and Publishing sectors as well as increasing its geographical footprint and pursuing acquisitions.
Jayne Archbold, Iptor CEO, comments, “We are delighted to make this announcement today and very excited about the future. None of this would be possible without the dedication and passion of our brilliant people as well as our loyal customers. We are excited about the future and the opportunities this creates for our team, our customers and businesses considering partnering with us.”
