ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Jan. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Spatial Networks, the creator of Fulcrum, the leading geospatial data collection and analysis platform for field operations, today announced that is has closed an investment of $42.5 million led by Kayne Partners, the growth equity group of Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors, L.P., and Kennet Partners, Ltd. The funding will primarily be used to scale the company's sales and marketing capabilities, accelerate its product development roadmap, and further expand the Fulcrum data collection platform into international markets.

With the completion of the deal, Jim Grady will assume the role of CEO, effective immediately. Grady brings more than 25 years of general management and leadership experience in high-growth technology companies to Spatial Networks. As CEO of Cellebrite, Inc., a leading provider of cyber/digital intelligence software solutions—including mobile phone forensic extraction and AI-driven analytics product lines for law enforcement, enterprise, and intelligence sectors—Grady scaled revenue from $5M to $100M while consistently expanding profit margins.

"Spatial Networks is uniquely positioned to transform the way organizations deploy and manage field workforces to better deliver superior customer experiences while increasing efficiency and profitability," said Jim Grady, CEO, Spatial Networks. "I look forward to building on the company's impressive product and market position as we deliver even greater insight and workflow automation through next-generation innovations that harness AI, low-code/no-code deployment, geospatial data collection and analytics, and an advanced reporting engine to establish Fulcrum as the industry's dominant field force data intelligence platform."
