Finance departments in medium-sized and large companies are increasingly managing to streamline routine actions by automating them through ERP or intelligent systems.

These programmes are increasingly scalable, have a greater number of functionalities and are more integrated, even being able to extract forecasts or detect failures in the processes carried out manually.

Within this sector there has been a boom in large technology companies, setting products that are very oriented towards large companies with very specific needs and with a great deal of regulation.

More and more startups are flourishing under this umbrella of large players, seeking the penetration with their products of these more easily implemented services in small and medium-sized companies, with the promise of process facilitation and cost reduction, with products that are adaptable and flexible to the needs of each specific company.

Within this phenomenon is one of the most important companies of the Business Operating System (BOS) most successful nationally: Holded.

Holded is a company that covers all the needs of small and medium-sized companies, from bookkeeping, invoice creation, human resources control to the provision of customer relationship management (CRM) tools.

In addition, one of its distinctive features is the integration of the system itself with different services or APIs from Amazon, Instagram, Paypal, Shopify allowing the control of all the company's activities from its own software.

At the end of April, the company held a capital increase by 6M€ to increase user base and upgrade softwareincluding new updates and features to grow and stand out from other similar companies.

In addition to this operation, there have been the following operations in the Spanish sector:


Anfix received 6M€ to develop a platform and accounting system for small businesses, while allowing actions related to collections, tax payments and the monitoring of all payments and receipts of the company in real time.

One of the differences with the rest of the companies in the sector is that the customer can decide what features you want to have and depending on this decision, it receives a different price, adapted to the size and needs of each client.


Zyfro is a company that provides software for the online invoice creation for small businesses and freelancers, allowing them to track orders, invoices, receipts and bank accounts in real time.

Thanks to this holistic view in which it integrates the creation of these invoices with the bank and allows tax documentation to be carried out directly, Zyfro has been able to 540,000 euros to finance a growth in headcount and expansion into France.
