SaaS training solutions provider nets additional £1.7 million in funding

The Administrate team

Edinburgh based Administrate, a software as a service (SaaS) solution for training providers, has secured an additional £1.7 million in an oversubscribed funding round.

The round was led by Scottish angel syndicate Archangels, including investment from the Scottish Investment Bank, the investment arm of Scottish Enterprise.

2015 has seen Administrate’s team triple in size in response to significantly increased demand for its products from North America, the UK and the Middle East and is now one of Scotland’s fastest growing tech companies.

Administrate sells its software to large organisations that struggle to define, manage, report on and sustain employee engagement in relation to training. The average firm spends more than $1,800 (£1,200) per employee per year but faces problems trying to accurately track this spend and measure engagement. After implementing Administrate, customers realise huge time savings, can drive strategic training initiatives and increase student engagement.

The market is taking notice – recently Administrate was named the #1 Learning Management System (LMS) for Continuing Professional Development by respected industry thought leader Talented Learning and some of the biggest brands in the world now rely on Administrate including PwC, Elsevier, Scania, Becker, Ag Leader and the Brunswick Corporation.

John Peebles, CEO of Administrate, said: “This year has been incredible! We’ve built an amazing team delivering success to our global customer base, supported by our investors and in keeping with our company values. We’re just getting started and are looking forward to an even better year in 2016.”

Mary Jane Brouwers, Investment Executive at Archangels, said: “At Archangels, our ability to provide ongoing support for the companies we invest in is key to our collective success. We're excited by the opportunity that Administrate has identified for a step change in its growth trajectory and our members have demonstrated their enthusiasm by backing this significant funding round."
