Business description

Project Hadley distributes many finance software products, underpinning its implementation processes with in-depth consultancy to determine clients’ precise objectives.

The company’s offering is integrated across the education vertical and numerous other sectors.
Many of the systems provided by the business are available with bespoke add-ons, which have either been developed by the company’s in-house team or via third parties.
Our client is now offering the business for sale to facilitate lifestyle changes and continued company expansion using the resources of an acquirer.
Offers invited.
