Also joining the round are notable founders – Krish Subramanian, Rajaraman Santhanam (Chargebee), Rohit Chennamaneni (Darwinbox), Asad Khan and Jay Singh (Lambdatest). Bluecopa caters to enterprises across the globe with a vision to free up finance teams and empower them to focus on strategic finance. The capital raised will be used to enhance the platform’s capabilities, hire talent and grow the company’s consumer base.
Bluecopa is a finance operations automation platform purpose-built for finance teams in high-growth companies. It helps CFOs and finance leaders get a real-time view of all the business KPIs, get actionable insights and provide strategic direction to business leaders. The platform also manages day-to-day finance operations such as business planning, scenario modelling, variance analysis, intelligent alerts, reconciliations and more. In essence, it accelerates the digitalization of the finance function in order to seamlessly manage the scale and complexity. It provides an easy-to-use and intuitive excel-like interface and can process millions of transactions in real-time.
Bluecopa was founded in 2021 by Raghavendra Reddy, Satyaprakash Buddhavarapu and Nilotpal Chanda who are a second-time entrepreneurial team with rich experience in building products and scaling companies in Fin-tech, ERP, AI and data-engineering domains. Satyaprakash’s first startup “Tuplejump” was a Machine Learning platform and was acquired by Apple in 2016.
Satya Prakash, Co-founder, Bluecopa, said, “With the proliferation of SaaS tools across organisations, real-time business observability is fragmented for finance teams, which means data to decision cycles are significantly high and error-prone. There is an increasing dependency on data teams, expensive and complex tools and clunky Excel spreadsheets to understand business drivers. This is a hair-on-fire problem, particularly in high transaction volume industries such as e-commerce, logistics, financial services etc. Solving these aspects can increase sales by 20% and profitability by 30%. Bluecopa supports the 10M finance community across the globe to significantly reduce time to decision cycles and focus on the numbers that matter.”
Anirvan Chowdhury, Blume Ventures, added, “Having the right financial observability and signals is mission critical for companies with high transaction volumes in today’s age. We really loved Bluecopa’s data-infra-focused approach to solving this critical problem for finance teams, which will be their key differentiator. With Satya having deep expertise in building a strong data infra product and getting a sizable exit to Apple, Neel’s strong credentials as an enterprise sales maestro, and Raghava’s hands-on experience in finance, we couldn’t have asked for a better team to solve a problem that every industry across all geographies is grappling with”.
Traditionally, finance operations & automation tools have been seen as table stakes, but not drivers of the bottom line or top line. The next generation
