Cloud Applications Provider Helps Companies Save Time and Costs by Bringing Together Finance, Sales and Services
San Mateo, CA, April 04, 2011: FinancialForce.com, the cloud applications company, today announced that it has been named by THINKstrategies as a winner of the Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Awards program.
The BoSS Awards program is an ongoing program of THINKstrategies’ new Cloud Computing Showplace, which recognizes SaaS companies that are producing tangible business benefits for specific user organizations.
“We appreciate this award from THINKstrategies and we thank them for recognizing the value we deliver to our customers,” said Jeremy Roche, President and CEO, FinancialForce.com. “We strongly believe that a combined FinancialForce Accounting and Salesforce CRM solution on the Force.com platform is the best way for companies to harness the power of the cloud and enable previously siloed departments to work together more effectively. As a result, our customers invoice more efficiently and accurately, collect cash more quickly, and ultimately improve customer service.”
FinancialForce.com focuses entirely on building business applications on Force.com, the Cloud Computing platform from salesforce.com, including accounting, billing, professional services automation (PSA) and services resource planning (SRP). Its applications help fast-growing organizations and dynamic enterprises align finance, sales and service in a way that enables profitable growth.
“With around 95% of our operations running through the Salesforce and FinancialForce systems, we have accomplished our goal of eliminating duplication of data as much as possible and feel we are massively more efficient as a result,” said Lucy Mills, business excellence manger, Nimbus Partners. “We used to spend around 45 minutes just producing an invoice and now it takes seconds.”
“By using FinancialForce.com, we initially cut month end from 4 to 2 days,” said David Tan, operations director, Quattro Innovation Group. “Even with our company doubling in size over the past 6 months we are now running month end in 1-2 days.”
“Organizations of all sizes across nearly every industry are recognizing the benefits of adopting Cloud-based, SaaS solutions to help them run their business operations better, “ said Jeffrey M. Kaplan, the founder of the SaaS Showplace, which is now a part of the new Cloud Computing Showplace, and managing director of THINKstrategies, the strategic consulting firm, which conceived and administers the Showplace. “FinancialForce.com’s SaaS-based applications enable organizations to more effectively manage their operations at a lower cost so they can achieve their corporate objectives.”
