“For over three years, Accel-KKR has been Kimble’s partner as we’ve worked to expand our product line and extend our global sales and service capabilities,” said Sean Hoban, CEO and co-founder of Kimble. “We are excited to take this next major step with Accel-KKR and Mavenlink as we create a company that will deliver innovative cloud-based technology, expertise, and value to professional services organizations globally.”

Sean Hoban and I, together with our co-founders and entire teams, share a common vision that purpose-built technology can transform the operational and financial performance of professional services firms,” said Ray Grainger, CEO and co-founder of Mavenlink. “Combining our capabilities and resources into a single organization will accelerate our progress towards this vision and drive value for our existing and future clients.”

The new company’s complementary portfolio of vertical SaaS solutions will enable professional services leaders to manage complex workflows and improve strategic planning by removing data silos and providing greater visibility and controls for project delivery, financial performance, and resource management. The breadth of the company’s product portfolio will deliver clients a selection of best-fit solutions that meet the needs of every organizational size, vertical, and geographic footprint.

A recent Forrester Consulting study commissioned by Mavenlink highlights the primary drivers behind a move to purpose-built vertical SaaS software solutions tailored for professional services organizations, including improved client satisfaction, better forecasting and increased revenue.

“Mavenlink’s and Kimble’s shared vision to help professional services organizations replace legacy resource and work management applications with purpose-built technology directly aligns with our investment focus on mission-critical applications and solutions,” said Tom Barnds, Co-Managing Partner of Accel-KKR. “The combined company will be unique in its ability to meet the evolving needs of professional services firms operating in the global networked economy.”
