The demand for IGM’s innovative, best-in-class financial reporting and budgeting software has significantly increased in recent years, leaving substantial room for continued market adoption.

“IGM Technology is committed to helping our clients automate mission-critical financial reporting requirements through best of breed software technologies. At the core of Gravity is a complex multi-dimensional financial model, which enables our clients to instantaneously build automated financial reports and budget books that are of professional publisher quality and to comply with complex and evolving regulatory standards. Since founding the company several years ago, we have assembled a world class team and developed a market leading solution. With this investment from Lead Edge Capital we are excited to redouble our investments in team and product to support our rapidly growing base of customers,” said IGM Technology’s Founder and CEO Isaac Gleicher.

“IGM is addressing a critical and underserved market where thousands of government agencies and organizations with complex reporting requirements are currently using in-house or manual processes. IGM is the leading provider of software that automates the disclosure, budgeting and reconciliation processes and is exceptionally well positioned to meet the needs of these organizations. We are excited to partner with Isaac and support the company as it accelerates product innovation and growth,” said Dan Lynn, Partner at Lead Edge Capital.

The Gravity solution is truly unique, and the company’s impact will only grow stronger as financial reporting requirements become increasingly complex.
