When it comes to welcoming a new shareholder to your company, obviously, you want to go with someone you know and can trust. We’ve entrusted Arcanys with our software development operations for years, and developed a solid partnership with them. So bringing them in as investors is a lot more valuable to us than bringing in other passive investors.

Matthew Bisset, CEO of Register Now
Matthew Bisset
CEO

Register Now is an online registration platform specifically designed for event organizers to streamline their registration process management. Launched in 2003, the SaaS startup has grown successfully in the Australasia region with over 1,000 active clients and more than 500,000 registrations per year. Looking to revamp their system’s interface and develop new customizable features in the most cost-effective and efficient way, they engaged Arcanys in 2016 with a few devs.

With a solid trust in their business model and over three years of working together, we witnessed how they work and collaborate with us, their capacity to deliver, and their friendly and honest personalities. So when they decided to run a funding round for the development of new modules in early 2020, we saw an opportunity to take the partnership further and thought it was the right time to invest with them.

I find it impressive how well our partnership has worked. My experience with the Arcanys team over the past 24 months has demystified the entire remote/offshore model that I was once quite skeptical about. Their team of developers demonstrates a level of foresight that is rare among outsourcing firms I’ve worked within the past. They demonstrate a great balance between taking initiative and asking for clarity when direction is required. It has been a very favorable experience.  And since we were in the position of raising funds, it was only natural to do it with them.

Neil Baker CEO of Medulla
Neil Baker
CEO

A cloud-based smart factory platform founded in 2016, Medulla aims to be a customizable digital bridge between a manufacturing company’s shop floor and ERP (enterprise resource planning) processes. Gaining fresh funding and scouting for a dependable tech team after experiencing cultural, time zone, and quality challenges with their previous provider, Medulla hired Arcanys in 2018. They were able to design a brand new user interface, build key user features, and enhance their modules with a dedicated tech team composed of 2 full-time developers, a QA, a project manager, and an on-demand UX designer.

After launching their MVP and getting their first couple of paying customers a year after they started, Medulla quickly decided to call for outside investment and engage in a seed funding round to develop new modules and augment their pipeline. Having developed substantial user bases and proving that they were prepared for success on a larger scale, it only made sense for Arcanys to come forward as an investment partner, rather than bring outside investors.

Our experience with Arcanys to date has been outstanding. By supplementing our team with Arcanys resources, we have been able to significantly grow our company for a fraction of the cost of hiring local employees. Having Arcanys on board as shareholders is the best form of investment we could think of. Since we know they have exactly the skills, experience, and mindset we need.

Co-founder and DTO

Payment Logic is an automated payment platform that allows Australian businesses to quickly and easily pay for their business expenses with their credit cards or bank transfers while optimizing cash flow, earning reward points, and preventing fraud with secured transactions. Two full-time Arcanys .NET developers joined them in 2016, cost-efficiently supplementing the Payment Logic team working on the platform.

In just two years, their dedicated Arcanys team ramped up from 2 to 10 people. Confident and positive about the people behind Payment Logic and their ways of doing business, we let them know of our interest to invest. In early 2020, the opportunity presented itself when Payment Logic realized they could develop a whole lot more additional tools to their system but lacked resources due to the COVID crisis. So they engaged in fundraising. Instead of calling for outside investors, though, they decided to add an extra 5 developers from Arcanys to accelerate their product development, as a form of investment.

By stepping in as an investor at a crucial time when we needed to take the next step in our development, Arcanys opened new expansion possibilities for us. And because they’re also a business partner whom we’ve known and collaborated with for years, they play a key role in helping us think through our product enhancements.

Antoine Vatar
Founder

A brainchild of the former LVMH executive Antoine Vatar, Think it Twice is a company that aims to reinvent corporate training via a seamless fusion of proven traditional training concepts and technology. The company was originally founded in 2014 and launched its first online training platform the next year to meet its clients' evolving needs. Determined to continuously diversify, it upped the ante by collaborating with Arcanys to develop its mobile platform, Albert. With an interdisciplinary team (developers, QA, project manager, business analyst, and CTO) responsible for developing its backend CMS and maintaining its software application, Think it Twice was more than ready to make great strides.

As the company was proving the worthiness of its model and products, Arcanys decided to invest in its second and third rounds of investments. Aiming to transform their product into a full-fledged self-service SaaS product and ensure steady growth, Think it Twice engaged in multiple funding rounds.

Arcanys team is working well and is well organized. Although our project comports very specific technical constraints, Arcanys developers were able to provide us a good implementation. An initial training was necessary to bring the developers aware of the project details, but after that the development became very efficient. The project is well structured with a modern management methods.

CEO of ASI
Lionel Yersin
CTO

Advanced Sports Instruments is a Swiss tech company established in 2011 that develops wearable technology and tracking solutions to analyze the movement of athletes in different team sports. Experts in ultra-precise on-board sensors, they were searching for skilled software engineers to develop intuitive web dashboards for one of their projects, FieldWiz—a tracker dedicated to team sports that generates heat maps and other physical statistics of players in the field. Arcanys skillfully stepped in with its engineers in Web and SaaS technology. And when Advanced Sports Instruments engaged in a funding round, Arcanys saw an opportunity to strengthen the partnership further and decided to invest in the project themselves.
