Scottish Equity Partners seals £18m investment in expanding tech business

Scottish Equity Partners (SEP) has completed a $25 million (£18m) investment in a growing technology business with the likes of BP and Procter & Gamble on its books.

Basis Technologies is a provider of DevOps and test automation software for SAP enterprise software systems. It is based in Richmond, London, with several overseas operations.

The firm is said to have experienced significant growth in recent years and investment from SEP will enable the business to further accelerate product development and increase adoption of its software through expansion of global sales and partnership capabilities. The company already employs more than 70 people.
