One Team Logic have a Queen's Award for building software for recording and managing all safeguarding concerns in any educational setting. Find out how we helped them grow to a market leader.
One Team Logic seeks to address issues arising from schools, and other institutions working with young children holding safeguarding records in paper-based files. Such systems inevitably lack real time reporting and trend analysis and are prone to oversight and inefficiency. Reporting of serious case issues are consistently missed causing untold harm to vulnerable children and young adults. MyConcern® rectifies this, allowing issues to be identified and resolved early on.
Just 3 years in the making, Martin, Mike and Darryl had successfully built and were rapidly selling their safeguarding software MyConcern® to schools and sporting bodies across the UK. The business has secured a strong foothold in the school and sports sectors and was seeking growth capital to become the dominant player in their existing markets whilst expanding into new territories and sectors.
We challenged the commercial rationale and internal consistencies of One Team Logic’s growth strategy. This allowed the management team to refine and hone their plans so that presentations to investors were clear, concise, delivered with confidence and stood up to scrutiny.
We went to market to identify the right investment partner for the business. We secured the backing of Octopus which provided an unrivalled opportunity for the team to realise their growth ambition for the business.
At some point in all transactions an event, issue or decision will arise that can irrevocably change the direction of the deal for the better or worse. Our understanding what makes investors tick and having past experiences of navigating common events ensured we delivered another highly successful outcome.
We worked closely with the business early on, challenging and supporting the Board in a hands-on manner to allow their business plan and financial forecasts to be brought to life in a robust and commercially attractive form.
After presenting the business to a range of investors, we leveraged our independent position to negotiate the best deal for One Team Logic and were instrumental in navigating the inevitable speed bumps that arise in every transaction.
We knew from the moment that we met Jim Shaw and the team at Shaw & Co that they were absolutely the right people for us to work with. Their integrity, knowledge and skill, as well as the outstanding levels of service that we have experienced throughout the process have been truly exceptional."
