GRAPH Strategy advises NorthEdge on latest technology investment

GRAPH Strategy – the London and Washington DC-based strategy consultancy – is delighted to have advised NorthEdge on its substantial investment into Cezanne HR, a human capital management software.

Cezanne HR offers an all-in-one software service for mid-sized businesses, helping to improve all aspects of HR from recruitment and onboarding, to core administration and performance management.

GRAPH’s team was led by James Tetherton (Senior Partner) and Matt Harrison (Manager), working alongside NorthEdge’s Dan Matkin, Director, and Simone Masterson, Investment Manager. The deal was led by NorthEdge’s Manchester office.

GRAPH provided comprehensive commercial due diligence (CDD) which included a detailed review of the HR software market, extensive customer interviews, and analysis of a range of growth strategies.

GRAPH’s work on this deal builds on its track record in the HR Software sector, including supporting LDC’s recent investment in Talos360.

James Tetherton, Senior Partner at GRAPH said: “It was a pleasure to work on another exciting HR software investment, and to continue our partnership with NorthEdge. Cezanne HR has demonstrated a strong record of growth in the last four years, built on the foundations of a high-quality product and exceptional customer support.

James added: “We’re excited to see what the next chapter will bring and are confident the business will go from strength to strength with NorthEdge’s support.”

Dan Matkin, Director at NorthEdge added: “GRAPH‘s strategic and market insight provided important support on this investment. They have a strong understanding of the HCM market and back up their clear, logical findings with detailed primary research. They continue to be an important partner for NorthEdge.”
