VERSAPAY ACQUIRES LEADING CASH APPLICATION FINTECH COMPANY DADESYSTEMS
Versapay, the leader in Collaborative Accounts Receivable, announced today it has completed its acquisition of U.S.-based fintech company DadeSystems. The acquisition broadens Versapay’s suite of accounts receivable (AR) automation solutions and expands its AI and machine learning capabilities. It also expands the company’s enterprise and mid-market footprint while adding key talent to the growing Versapay team.
“We are very excited to welcome DadeSystems’ employees, customers, and partners to Versapay,”
“Versapay and DadeSystems have enjoyed a successful partnership for some time, and most importantly we share a common vision for the digitization of the AR process. Together, we can accomplish even more to close the digital transformation gap in AR, optimizing our clients’ cash flow and driving operational efficiencies.”
Craig O’Neill, CEO, of Versapay.
DadeSystems has been a long-term technology partner of Versapay. The company’s flagship DadePay cash application software automates one of the most challenging parts of AR by streamlining the receipt, matching, and reconciliation of payments no matter how they are received, and is already embedded in Versapay’s cloud-based, automated AR platform. Now, all DadeSystems solutions, including mobile offerings, will be available to Versapay’s clients and partners. By adding DadePay solutions to Versapay’s Collaborative AR Network, enterprises can digitize and automate all their customer payments, including checks, bank-to-bank transfers, credit cards, and mobile payments.
The combined company automates more than $60 billion in payment volume annually and has achieved rapid revenue growth in the past 12 months. DadeSystems investor, Ten Coves Capital, is rolling its stake into Great Hill Partners-backed Versapay, while both Great Hill Partners and Ten Coves Capital are contributing additional capital to fund the acquisition.
“This acquisition will give Versapay an unmatched, comprehensive suite of AR automation solutions, perfectly positioning the company to capture the growing market opportunities,”
“We look forward to a successful partnership as these innovators come together to revolutionize the way accounts receivable teams work.”
Matt Vettel, Managing Director, Great Hill Partners.
DadeSystems predominantly serves upper mid-market and enterprise customers, including two of the ten largest U.S. food distributors, two of the ten largest U.S. building materials, and nine of the sixty-five largest U.S. banks in addition to being a technology provider for Wells Fargo‘s and Fifth Third’s accounts receivable automation solutions. DadeSystems also brings important partners to Versapay, such as Fiserv, to support the company’s rapid growth.
“We are thrilled to become part of Versapay,”
“The accounts receivable function has been desperately in need of a workflow revolution. The cloud-based solutions that both our teams have introduced are making this happen. By joining forces, we will see even faster growth and a bigger impact on the industry’s digital transformation.”
Bill Zayas, CEO, DadeSystems.
