I am thrilled to announce our Series C funding of $28 million led by Eurazeo, along with our historical investors Accel Partners, Alven Capital, and Kernel Investments.
Eurazeo is one of the leading listed investment firms in Europe. This new funding will help accelerate our growth in the U.S. (American Express, Fast Retailing, Georgetown University and Paychex are a few of our new clients) and our revenue performance globally (we have quadruped our global revenue and have now over 400 customers).
This infusion of capital will continue to fuel our rapid expansion of sales, marketing, customer support, and R&D efforts, delivering on our vision of HR Service Delivery solutions in the cloud.
Over the last 4 weeks, we have partnered with ADP, SAP Success Factors, and Workday. These partnerships enable our customers to derive more value from their core HR platforms by easily connecting PeopleDoc’s powerful HR workflow and document management tools.
Our primary goal at PeopleDoc is to enable HR to reduce costs, focus on strategic business initiatives and delight employees by empowering them to quickly and easily access relevant HR information.
We are constantly innovating to offer our customers an exceptional experience. We could not have done it without your support and we are fully committed to your continuous success. We thank you for your confidence in PeopleDoc.

Conducting user research to build innovative HR technology solutions
September 27th was a big day for the Design and Product team at PeopleDoc. We visited the Shared Services Center of one of our customers. It was an opportunity for us to see our users at their workplace, talk with them and see how they use our HR technology solutions. Visits like this are always a great source of inspiration and insights. They allow us to better know the people we design for. But let me explain to you why knowing our users is so important and how it allows us to build better products.
With 59 sessions, 400+ vendors and 9,000 people, you’re going to experience some degree of FOMO at HR Tech. Since you can’t do it all, you have to make sure you do it right. Here’s a list of tips for getting the most out of the show and the events you don’t want to miss out on:
Here at PeopleDoc, I’m responsible for our Employee File Management and eSignature applications. Along with my colleagues on the Product team, who are in charge of other applications, we receive a lot of feedback about how to make our HR SaaS product better. Receiving feedback and feature requests is very valuable for us. We’re a relatively young company, still with a startup mindset, providing something new, an "HR Service Delivery Platform," and as a result our roadmap is strongly based on the conversations we have with our clients. However, for the person who submits the request, it can seem as though it’s not worth the effort if it doesn't lead to a change in the product.
