AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Iconixx is poised to continue its rapid ascent in the compensation management software industry after raising $10 million in a recent investment round.
Company founder and CEO, Derrik Deyhimi, said the money will fuel Iconixx's accelerated growth. The round was co-led by Harbert Venture Partners and S3 Ventures with participation from existing investor Ballast Point Ventures.
The emergence of Iconixx as a global leader in compensation management has garnered significant interest from investors. This latest $10 million round comes on the heels of a $4.5 million capital investment from Ballast Point Ventures and KBH Ventures in 2014. That investment and an earlier round in 2012 were both instrumental in helping Iconixx capture a significant slice of market share.
The infusion of fresh capital will have a transformational impact on the company. Iconixx is focused on expanding its product line at an aggressive rate and will hire a substantial number of additional employees -- including a 150-percent increase in the size of its customer success team.
Additionally, Iconixx is preparing to release two new state-of-the-art offerings, which Deyhimi believes will become "significant differentiators" in the market.
Iconixx provides clients with a comprehensive solution to compensation management. The company's innovative product suite automates sales, incentive, bonus and merit processes, resulting in greater sales performance efficiency and accuracy.
Deyhimi is no stranger to the process. Over the course of his career, the CEO has helped take six technology firms from the garage to the $100 million mark in revenue. Though Iconixx has already established itself as one of the most innovative and forward-thinking firms in the industry, Deyhimi believes the company is on the verge of even greater achievements.
"Iconixx's evolution has been spurred on by a strong sales pipeline and an even greater customer success track record. We have established booking records for six consecutive quarters, and we expect to see that growth accelerate," said Deyhimi. Along with its suite of industry-leading software solutions, the CEO credits the firm's explosive growth to the hard work and skill of company staff.
As evidenced by this latest investment round, the firm's new investors are equally bullish on the future of Iconixx.
"I am impressed with Iconixx's compensation management suite and believe the company is poised for accelerated growth in the near future" said Rajiv Bala of S3Ventures. Tom Roberts of Harbert Venture Partners, added, "Iconixx's current customer acquisition rate combined with a strong sales and incentive compensation market positions the company for success".
