Symphony plans to use the fresh funds to further develop its recently launched Market Solutions business, which offers customers a workflow automation solution accompanied by a suite of standardized and licensable software.

Since its launch in 2014, Symphony claims to have 430,000 licensed users from over 60 countries.

It also said its customers and partners had developed more than 1,000 bots and apps on its platform.
