Neocase Software, a global HR service management platform vendor, announces a new €6 million fundraising round led by Entrepreneur Venture, alongside Sofiouest, the management team and historical shareholder Iris Capital.
This fundraising will allow Neocase Software to boost its R&D and sales programs, to expand beyond large enterprise clients to now also serve mid-market companies and to accelerate its international development, including in Germany and the Nordics.
The SaaS company now had a growth of 22% in 2019 and targets more than 20% in 2020 despite the Covid19 crisis.
Neocase Software opens its HR digitalization service to medium size companies in new regions
A leading provider of HR service management for nearly two decades, Neocase Software has spread its offer and team in key regions to address large companies’ needs. With offices and teams in Paris (where the company is headquartered), London, Amsterdam and Boston, Neocase Software is now reinforcing its offer and footprint in the DACH region, the UK as well as the Nordics, where the company already serves clients in the automotive, security and financial services industries.
Neocase Software will also foster its R&D and sales teams, to develop and attract midsize companies, as the HR digitalization offer was originally developed to increase efficiency for companies employing over 10,000 employees with remote HR needs.
The company will use the funds to fuel its expansion and help smaller structures by making its offer available for organisations of 1,500 employees and more, allowing HR services in these businesses to digitalise and soften their workload with an HR Ready© platform.
Neocase Software serves today more than 150 clients worldwide operating in 180 countries, directly and through integrators. Its client references include Société Générale, Air France, Cap Gemini, Thales, WorldBank, Peugeot-Opel, Axa, Sandvik, UCB, Penn State University, Harrods, United Health Services, MGM Resorts, AG2R La Mondiale.
Digitalizing HR services to allow professionals to focus their attention on key roles rather than ticket management.
Companies of all sizes have been faced with serious HR challenges recently: high-speed remote work normalisation, paperwork digitalisation, employees with personal situations, part-time management, etc. Their daily jobs have been shaken and their workload, especially towards remote employees, has increased and diverted in unprecedented ways.
HR service management is now in high need of efficiency and improvement for the HR professionals who are eager to focus their attention at work on career development, recruitment, projects managements rather than ticket processes. Neocase Software allows them to digitalize many day-to-day tasks with a digital platform accessible anywhere and everywhere to all employees at distance, relying on a solid AI-based Talents and Employees management platform, leveraged by Big Data to ensure a personalized experience and answer to every request.
Neocase Software CEO Didier Moscatelli said:
“Neocase Software is a global expert for HR services helping global structure digitalise their employees-HR communications across large organisations HR digitalization is now a “must have“ and our 15 year of experience in HR systems is key to enable the companies to strengthen their Employees experience. This new fundraising will allow us to address a high demand of midsize companies for our SaaS solution as well as growing our R&D and sales efforts toward new markets such as the DACH region, the UK and the Nordics. We’re looking forward to this new chapter alongside solid investors such as Entrepreneur Venture, Iris Capital and Sofiouest.”
Pierre-Alexis de Vauplane, Entrepreneur Venture Investment Director added:
“We are delighted to give Neocase the means to continue its growth. We had been talking with the company for several months and the dynamic provided by Didier Moscatelli convinced us; the past few weeks have also confirmed the value of Neocase for companies and employees in this time of crisis.”
Curt Gunsenheimer, Managing Partner at Iris Capital, commented:
“We have been supporting Neocase Software for years now, standing at their side at every stage of their history. We are proud to fuel this new chapter towards international growth, especially in the DACH region where we will be strong promoters of their new mid-size companies offer alongside their first class integrators’ network.”

Neocase solutions allow HR services and managers to spend more time on career development projects and less resource on light requests.
