HighRadius, a company that offers AI-powered order-to-cash and treasury management solutions, announced today that it has raised $125 million in Series B funding. The investment boosts the Houston, Texas-based firm’s valuation to $1 billion, earning it the status as one of the first new fintech unicorns of 2020.
The round was led by Iconiq Capital, and featured participation from Citi Ventures and Susquehanna Growth Equity. Iconiq Capital partner Will Griffith praised the way HighRadius’ platform had improved the efficiency of accounts receivable and treasury teams, and put the company’s accomplishments in the broader context of other innovative firms in its portfolio. “Digital transformation is increasingly a CFO priority,” Griffith said, calling HighRadius’s platform “game-changing.”
HighRadius’ integrated receivables technology optimizes accounts receivables operations by combining all receivable and payment modules into a single, unified business process. The company’s treasury management technology provides treasury departments with greater visibility into cash operations – including cash levels – and automates reconciliation. Founded in 2006, the company, which includes Citi and Bank of America Merrill Lynch among its clients, has processed more than $1.3 trillion in transactions via its AI-enabled platform.
“Today marks an important milestone for HighRadius and we’re thrilled to have ICONIQ join us in our vision to modernize the Order to Cash space,” HighRadius founder and CEO Sashi Narahari said. He pledged to build the company “into a self-sustaining, long-term category leader.”
Earlier this year, HighRadius partnered with London-based, e-payments company PPRO to give merchants a broader range of options to accept payments from buyers. The combined offering will allow for the discovery and support of local payment methods (LPMs) in key locations, and is designed to help merchant clients keep up with the increasing diversity of payment options around the world.
This spring, the company unveiled its Collection Agency Data Exchange solution which enables customers using HighRadius Collections Cloud to electronically send accounts and invoices to a trio of third-party collection agencies directly from the HighRadius platform. HighRadius began the year with the launch of its order-to-cash digital assistant, Freeda, and a partnership with the Media Financial Management Association to provide credit management automation for the organization’s subsidiary credit association, BCCA.
