Rapidly growing architectural company to join financials and PSA on single platform with existing Salesforce CRM
San Francisco, CA – December 2, 2015: FinancialForce.com, the leading cloud ERP provider on the Salesforce App Cloud, today announced that Ridley, an industry-leading architectural services company for the built environment, has selected FinancialForce Financial Management (FM) and FinancialForce Professional Services Automation (PSA) to replace a number of different solutions including spreadsheets and accounting software. As existing Salesforce CRM users, the firm is committed to leveraging the Salesforce App Cloud to run its business and achieve real-time insight and transparency into its resources.
Within four years, Ridley, which is headquartered in Australia, has grown to 100 employees across 5 locations worldwide, including the Philippines and North America. They provide digital modelling and executive architecture services to Developers, Construction Companies and Design Architects. As the company grew quickly, having instant data into the business from both a project delivery and financial perspective became imperative in order to service customers effectively, increase productivity and improve profit margins.
“Ridley’s mission is to drive our industry into a digital future and push the boundaries of what’s possible in order to find the best outcome, said Joshua Ridley, CEO of Ridley. “We are constantly looking for partners driven by innovation to help us achieve our mission, which is one reason we selected FinancialForce.com to run our financials and PSA. As existing Salesforce users, we ultimately were looking for solutions built on the platform, knowing we could leverage the data for an integrated and more transparent approach to project management and financial reporting.”
By moving away from spreadsheets and other disconnected solutions, Ridley aims to leverage the reporting features and resource data of FinancialForce PSA, FinancialForce FM and Salesforce CRM in order to drive better outcomes on future projects and in turn increase profitability.
