In June 2018, CIPHR launched CIPHR Connect: an ecosystem of trusted business applications that integrate seamlessly with CIPHR’s HR and recruitment solutions, connecting people data across the organization and enabling HR departments to work more strategically and effectively.

CIPHR Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions

CIPHR Risks and Challenges
In January 2021, ECI Partners, the leading growth-focused mid-market private equity firm, has invested in CIPHR. The investment will support CIPHR to accelerate its ambitious growth and development plans. The transaction provides an exit for LDC who invested in CIPHR in 2016. During its partnership with LDC, CIPHR invested in product development and completed four strategic acquisitions, expanding CIPHR’s offering beyond HR to also include recruitment, learning and payroll solutions through the CIPHR Connect HCM platform. Between 2016 and 2020 CIPHR invested heavily, doubling its headcount, driving compound annual revenue growth of over 25%.
The recent ownership change can result in a change of product director and go-to-market strategy.
