Drayton Park Capital exits Agilence following successful refinancing
Drayton Park Capital is pleased to announce another successful exit following the provision of new funding for Agilence Inc., the leading provider of cloud-based analytics for store operations and loss prevention, from Wellington Financial LP. In addition to refinancing Drayton Park Capital’s investment, the new funding will be used to further develop Agilence’s reporting solution that supports the mission-critical needs of some of the largest retailers, grocers, pharmacies, and chain restaurant operations in the United States.
As the world’s leading cloud-based data analytics provider, Agilence works with more than 118 brands encompassing over 35,000 stores, including Rite Aid, L Brands, Panera Bread, and BJ’s Wholesale Club, to deliver insights on performance, empowering them to make informed decisions move quickly, increase efficiency, and improve profit margins across the enterprise. The company’s 20/20 Data Analytics™ platform recently expanded from a focus strictly on retail to include versions that support the individual needs of restaurants and pharmacies. Each industry-specific product variation evaluates business performance at every stage of the sales cycle while also ensuring that customers remain compliant with corporate or government standards.
“The importance of data-driven decision-making in business is more crucial than ever, and at Agilence, we’ve built the leading unified solution for organizations to leverage the right insights from their POS data. These insights need to be accessible and delivered to every stakeholder, from franchisees to managers, in a way that immediately impacts the bottom line,” said Russ Hawkins, Chief Executive Officer of Agilence.
