Reflexis to Accelerate Growth with Great Hill Investment
BOSTON — Monday, April 3, 2017 — Reflexis, the leader in retail real-time execution and workforce management solutions, announced today that it has received a minority equity investment from Great Hill Partners, a Boston-based private equity firm focused on partnering with rapidly growing technology companies. Reflexis’ existing leadership team will use proceeds from the financing to further strengthen its technology offerings and solidify Reflexis’ position as a market leader.

“Retailers are recrafting operating models to meet shifting customer demands. Our best-in-class software platform provides the underpinning technology to introduce flexibility in execution and enterprise-wide alignment,” said Prashanth Palakurthi, founder and CEO of Reflexis. “Continuing to exceed our clients’ expectations and deliver the innovative technology that they have come to expect from us requires investment in our employees and technology,” he explained. “We believe that Great Hill and our existing investor, Sageview Capital, are the ideal partners to help support and accelerate our growth. Given the rapid expansion that we have experienced in the last few years, our team looks forward to leveraging the proceeds from this investment to continue to build on Reflexis’ strong momentum.”
“We are excited to support Prashanth and his team as Reflexis expands its role as a leader in providing workforce management software to enhance employee productivity and improve retail consumer experience,” noted Chris Busby, Partner, Great Hill Partners. “After conducting extensive research with its customers and leadership team, we are impressed by Reflexis’ exemplary reputation in the marketplace and have the utmost confidence in the future of the company,” he continued.
“The progress Reflexis has made over the last few years has been tremendous” added Jeff Klemens, partner at Sageview Capital. “We are excited to partner with Great Hill to accelerate the company’s momentum”.
