29th May 2019, Cambridge, UK – Arcus Global Limited, a market leader in GovTech cloud solutions, is pleased to announce it has raised an additional £2.5 million to support its growth ambitions into 2020 and beyond.
The proceeds will be used to accelerate the growth of the business and continue investment in its transformative product portfolio, including further development of Arcus’ local government software platform and recently launched AI-powered voice solution, Arcus Answer. In the financial year ended 30 June 2018, Arcus delivered annual revenues of £13.0 million representing 34% year-on-year growth.

Eamon Nolan, Partner at YFM Equity Partners comments: “Undoubtedly, outdated legacy systems are holding back the organisations in the public sector. Arcus Global is making great steps to help drive true digital transformation with leading local authorities, universities and the NHS across the UK and we are excited about the positive impact this has and what Arcus is set up to achieve over the next few years.”
