AUDUBON, PA, September 20, 2017 – Sizable investments warrant expert support, according to ORS Partners (ORS), an outsourced recruitment solutions firm that partners with venture capital and private equity backed companies to provide strategic talent acquisition programs. Since 2012, ORS has been providing employers in the Mid-Atlantic region the talent they need to build their businesses successfully.

Talent acquisition is a core business function for all growth organizations, yet most companies are not experts in the acquisition and retention of human capital. ORS is comprised of over 70 talent acquisition experts that become the outsourced, ‘in-house’ recruitment consultants and brand ambassadors for their clients. Over 140 organizations have trusted ORS to carry their business card and act as an extension of their team to deploy best practices in attracting and hiring talent.

In five years, ORS has helped ten clients successfully grow and scale their teams in preparation for liquidity events including: Whiptail acquired by Cisco in September 2013; Pet360 acquired by PetSmart in September 2014; iLEVEL acquired by Ipreo in June 2015; iPipeline acquired by Thoma Bravo in August 2015; Centrak acquired by Halma February 2016; IntegriChain acquired by Accel-KKR in March 2016; Operative acquired by SintecMedia in November 2016; MacroPoint acquired by Descartes in August 2017; Frontline Education acquired by Thoma Bravo in August 2017.

Edison Partners Leads $8M Series A Growth Investment in Signet Accel

Fuels continued product innovation and go-to-market execution for healthcare IT interoperability platform

PRINCETON, N.J.—September 12, 2017— Edison Partners today announced leading an $8 million Series A growth financing in Columbus-based Signet Accel, a healthcare interoperability company. Signet Accel will use the funds to develop new products and partnerships, and scale sales and marketing.

Signet Accel provides data interoperability to health systems, consortia, research institutions and biopharma companies in the U.S.. Its flagship solution, Avec®, is a database-agnostic federated data integration platform purpose-built for use in complex research and clinical care environments, giving physicians and researchers the ability to view and analyze data from disparate sources on a global scale. Signet Accel’s federated model is fully scalable, uncompromisingly secure, and cost-effective.

“In our 31 years of successful investment in healthcare IT, we’ve rarely come across a company with such clear product differentiation in a market where demand is rapidly increasing,” said Gregg Michaelson, Partner at Edison Partners who led the investment. “Signet Accel has a clear opportunity to become the market leader in interoperability, and we’re excited to bring our expertise to bear as we work together to achieve this goal,” he adds.

The company’s growth has been fueled by a truly differentiated SaaS platform, and a customer roster that values quality product and service, including: The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center—The James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute; the Hairy Cell Leukemia Foundation; the Oncology Research Information Exchange Network (ORIEN); REACHNet; and the Louisiana Statewide Initiative.

“We’re thrilled to work with Edison Partners, whose leaders intimately understand the complexities of healthcare and how to leverage technology and partnerships to drive and accelerate revenue growth,” said John Raden, CEO of Signet Accel. “We’re hard at work delivering superior access to integrated data across the healthcare ecosystem and Edison Partners will add tremendous value throughout our growth path.”

While many growth equity firms concentrate only in major markets, more than 80 percent of Edison investments occur in technology hotbeds outside of New York and Massachusetts throughout the eastern half of the U.S. In 2017, Edison Partners has made growth investments in Pennsylvania, Texas, Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, and now Ohio. Signet Accel is based in Columbus, one of the top five Midwestern cities for startups founded since 2015, according to CrunchBase.

In all, Edison Partners has financed and guided more than 200 private companies since 1986. Noteworthy Healthcare IT exits include Premier Health Exchange (PHX), Dendrite, Cadient, Health Market Science, and Verilogue. Current Healthcare IT portfolio companies include Lincor, TrialScope, and Virtual Health. This growth equity investment in Signet Accel marks the 18th investment from Edison Partners’ latest fund, Edison Partners VIII, and the firm’s third investment in Ohio.
