LIVONIA, Mich. (April 23, 2014) – WorkForce Software, a leading provider of workforce management solutions, today announced that New York-based Insight Venture Partners has assumed a majority equity position in the company. The investment will accelerate WorkForce Software’s global expansion, including scaling operations to support the Company’s rapidly growing client base.

Founded in 1999, WorkForce Software has experienced tremendous growth in the evolving and expanding Human Capital Management (HCM) market. The company’s worldwide client base of customers uses its cloud-based workforce management suite to reduce costs, mitigate risks, and address the regulatory and HR complexities associated with managing a large or multinational employee base. In 2013, WorkForce Software increased revenues by 66 percent, sparked by rising demand for the company’s unique approach to time and attendance, scheduling, fatigue management and absence management requirements. In 2013, and for the second consecutive year, Inc. Magazine also recognized WorkForce Software as a top private industry job creator, and named the company to the Inc. 5000 list for a seventh consecutive year. WorkForce Software was also presented with the “Top Workplaces” designation from the Detroit Free Press for exceptional work environment, team culture, and growth opportunities.

Kevin Choksi, CEO and co-founder of WorkForce Software, said, “We’ve forged an environment where talented professionals put their skills and creativity to work in ways that deliver direct and tangible results for clients. It’s a culture of innovation and excellence, a philosophy that is shared by the team at Insight Venture Partners. This is an ideal partnership that will expedite our global expansion, benefitting our employees and clients alike.”
