FlexPoint, which provides a payments automation platform to managed service providers (MSPs) and their clients, announced a $35 million round of funding.

This capital infusion will come in both debt and equity and will be used to support the financial solutions provider’s growth strategy, according to the company.

The financing round features a $5 million equity investment spearheaded by Haymaker Ventures, alongside contributions from previous investors such as Garuda Ventures, Far Out Ventures, and Cascade Seed Fund.

FlexPoint has also secured a $30 million credit facility from Tacora Capital, which is designated to enhance FlexPoint's working capital solutions.

Impact on MSP Operations

FlexPoint works with hundreds of MSPs and their clients, simplifying and automating payment processes. 

Michael Leonard, president at Compunet Technologies, a FlexPoint partner, commented on the news:

“I remember when monthly billing took more than half a day. Now, my account admin just goes onto FlexPoint and approves the invoices. It takes her 15 minutes, and all of our billing is done for the month. The FlexPoint team are great people and true partners. They take their job of helping us to be successful, improve our productivity, and streamline our billing very seriously.”
