After a successful partnership, Main Capital Partners announces the sale of supply chain sustainability software provider, ChainPoint, to Source Intelligence, a software provider for product compliance and ESG management. During Mains’ investment period, ChainPoint has experienced substantial growth offering its customers an innovative software platform for monitoring and securing supply chains. ParkerGale Capital backs the sale of ChainPoint to Source Intelligence in a mutual effort to establish an overseas presence.

The flexibility and scalability of ChainPoint’s software enable applicability in any industry, commodity, and supply chain.
In true partnership, ChainPoint management and Main have successfully developed the company into a recurring SaaS business with a blue-chip international client base across various industries. Furthermore, a continuous focus on innovation has resulted in a modern and scalable tech platform allowing ChainPoint to execute its growth strategy for the coming years.
Pieter van Bodegraven, Chairman at ChainPoint and Senior Partner at Main, comments, “GRC and compliance-related software segments are part of our key focus areas within Main. During our investment period, we were able to help scale up the organization internationally while accelerating the company’s growth strategy in an increasingly profitable way.”
