FinancialForce Introduces FinancialForce ACCELERATE to Deliver Customer Success Throughout the Entire Customer Lifecycle Experience
LAS VEGAS – May 8, 2019 – FinancialForce, the #1 Enterprise Professional Services Automation (PSA) and the only customer-centric ERP (CCERP) cloud solution, announced FinancialForce ACCELERATE, a set of service and product solutions created to accelerate customer value across the entire customer lifecycle experience with FinancialForce. FinancialForce ACCELERATE features both paid and non-paid services, in addition to tools, methodology, and product technology to deliver on accelerated outcomes for customer success.
Designed for both the FinancialForce PSA and CC ERP product offerings, FinancialForce ACCELERATE delivers a range of services and product solutions across the customer lifecycle experience, beginning when the prospective customer evaluates FinancialForce through to when they become a seasoned customer, delivering accelerated time-to-value and ROI. With other cloud solutions, their Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) offerings place the application at the center of the experience. With FinancialForce ACCELERATE, the customer sits at the center of their lifecycle experience with FinancialForce.
“The way technology vendors go to market with their customer success services is becoming more important to end customers and, thus, more of a competitive imperative,” said R “Ray” Wang, Constellation Research. “Companies that can deliver a differentiated end-to-end customer lifecycle experience will make their customers winners in the market going forward”
“Customers are often looking to us for guidance on what to implement and what not to, as opposed to an ‘anything goes’ approach,” said John Bergman, Vice President, Product Management at FinancialForce. “Customers also want to know what best practices to deploy to deliver on the desired outcomes of their digital transformation initiatives, and many other factors related to their ultimate success. They expect FinancialForce to be a valued partner in delivering on those desired outcomes, delivering success across all stages of their customer lifecycle experience, and that is why we created FinancialForce ACCELERATE.”
