San Francisco, CA – April 13, 2015: FinancialForce.com, the leading cloud ERP provider on theSalesforce1 Platform, today announced that MailGuard, global provider in software-as-a-service email and web security solutions, has selectedFinancialForce Financial Management (FM) to replace a time-consuming in-house system. Headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, MailGuard will be fully supported through FinancialForce.com’s recent Sydney office launch, which serves customers throughoutAustralia and New Zealand.
As the World’s largest privately owned cloud security group, MailGuard is responsible for protecting clients business from email and web threats in real-time. Since launching in 2001, MailGuard has used an in-house system for their accounting, consisting of a combination of MYOB Accounting and spreadsheets to manage subscriptions and track metered billing. Growing fast, MailGuard records a 98%partner and client retention rate year-on-year, and found that their homegrown accounting processes were creating inefficiencies across departments, taking valuable time for maintenance and development which should be used on service enhancements and other areas of company focus.
MailGuard selected FinancialForce Financial Management given its tight integration withSalesforce, as well as its global presence and efficiency gains. The company recently overhauled their Salesforce practices and expects all client data from here on out to live on the platform, including running billing and finance reports seamlessly. As MailGuard continues to take on new business, implementingFinancialForce Financial Management will easily allow the company to obtain a faster recall of invoicing and adjustments as well as painlessly enter call logs and previous discussions with debtors so a customer has only one point of contact.

Not to mention, our workforce will become incredibly more efficient without our homegrown accounting solution. FinancialForce Financial Management will give our employees the ability to access data from anywhere at anytime.”
