BigChange, creators of a mobile workforce management software for the service and transport sectors, has raised over £75 million from Great Hill Partners, putting the company’s valuation at £100 million. According to a press release, the management team, led by founder and CEO Martin Port, will retain a significant minority stake in the company. Set out to innovate field service (and make it paperless), BigChange’s tools handle job scheduling, customer invoicing and payments automation, mobile workforce management and client engagement. The platform serves 1,500 small to enterprise clients spanning over 20 industries, from plant hire to drainage and waste, and social housing to food service. A good portion of the new funding will go to product development and expanding into new markets. The Leeds-based company already operates across Europe, the US and Asia Pacific. Last year the software was awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, one of the highest official honors for companies in the UK.
