With Bocap’s Investment, We Are Hiring 200 New Experts
The Finnish Good Sign has developed a unique recurring billing software. Good Sign is now aiming for global success with EUR 10 million in growth funding. The investor in the financing round is the Finnish private equity company Bocap. “With this investment, we can accelerate the triumph of customer-centric service businesses,” says Taija Engman, CEO of Good Sign. Bocap’s founder Julianna Borsos emphasizes that Good Sign is hitting the global megatrend: the transition from a product business to services.
Good Sign, a Finnish forerunner in subscription management and recurring billing, has received a capital investment from Bocap SME Achievers Fund III. EUR 10 million of funding will be used for growing and scaling in both the domestic and global markets.
“We are hiring 200 new experts and expanding our partner network. Now, with this investment, we can accelerate the triumph of customer-centric service businesses. We now have the resources to become a top player globally”, says Taija Engman, CEO of Good Sign.
In a recent report, the international research and consulting company Forrester has listed Good Sign among the global players in the field. Co-founder Engman describes Good Sign's promising position in the market:
“The rise in recurring revenue business models and digitalization are megatrends that were further accelerated by the pandemic. Our unique SaaS provides infinite opportunities to succeed globally as more and more companies launch subscriptions and create pay-per-use business models. The digital leap will not succeed if billing doesn’t work smoothly.”
Current enterprise IT systems such as Microsoft and SAP do not alone cater for agile enough recurring billing and pricing. According to Engman, Good Sign creates important added value.
"Subscription and recurring billing management will become an integral part of the customer experience."

“There is an urgent need for such a solution also in Bocap’s portfolio companies. Recurring revenue business models and the shift from a product business to services are a megatrend to which Good Sign is now leaving a lasting footprint. Good Sign's software provides simple and measurable solutions to the real problems that all companies face in recurring billing”, describes Julianna Borsos, the founder of Bocap.
Bocap's Investment Director Angelo Moita emphasizes Good Sign's expertise.
“The company has a great team of industry experts who have created a technically advanced and highly competitive solution. Their SaaS is scalable and there is a huge market demand for it now and in the future.”
