  • Armstrong supports investment in fast growing venue accreditation software provider Accredit Solutions

    Armstrong has provided CDD and FDD in support of Accredit Solutions’ growth fundraising.

    Accredit Solutions’ accreditation software provides identity and security validation and compliance for staff and contractor teams working at major venues such as sports stadia and large public events.  The platform provides a highly efficient and GDPR compliant way to collect data, store documentation, set access controls and produce accreditation passes to significantly reduce the risk of a security breach, and avoid substantial fines for employing illegal workers.

    Recently celebrating its 2nd birthday as a stand-alone company, Accredit Solutions’ pioneering accreditation software has been rapidly adopted by stadium operators and tournament organisers across the world.  The last 12 months has seen the accredit platform process over 2.1 million accreditations for major Premier League Football Clubs, The Rugby Football Union, New Zealand Rugby Union, Cricket Australia, The Brits Awards, and the International Cricket Council to name a few.

    “Accredit Solutions’ goal is to improve operational efficiencies and security at stadiums and major events through the provision of a best-in-class accreditation platform. This capital gives us the resources to expand quickly into new markets and innovate rapidly to ensure our software remains one of the most sophisticated, secure and trusted accreditation platforms for major events worldwide” says Accredit Solutions Co-Founder and CEO, Peder Berg.

    The business will use the financing to continue expanding its global reach into Australasia and the USA, accelerate product innovation, development of a client resource centre, expansion of its account management team, and the launch of Accredit 365 – a new product focusing on day-to-day contractor management.
