FinancialForce July PR Picks
July was HOT, HOT, HOT. Well maybe not the temperature here in San Francisco but we sure had a global PR heat wave and it doesn’t look like we’ll be cooling off anytime soon.
We kicked the month off with a customer story from Australia, won a prominent award in the UK, secured some commentary on the new revenue recognition rules that are poised to strongly affect the regulatory landscape in the coming months, and just last week we made quite a splash with our take on the wider impact of Oracle’s acquisition of NetSuite.
Take a look below at some of July’s greatest PR hits and be sure to head over to the Press Center for a full overview.
- Earlier in the month we announced that KinCare, one of Australia’s leading in-home care providers specializing in aged and disability services, selected FinancialForce Financial Management to run their company financials. KinCare selected FinancialForce as part of their strategic company decision to move all key business applications onto the Salesforce Platform. This great customer win was covered by CIO Australia, Enterprise Times, HomeCareDaily and others.
- Also this month we were recipients of a 2016 DOFscar, also known as a Director of Finance award, for Financial Software Provider of the Year. The awards are in their second year and are hosted by Ten Alps Media, the people behind Director of Finance, a magazine and website aimed to advise finance professionals on the most up to date issues faced by major corporations and leading finance directors.
- Our General Manager of Financial Management applications, Raphael Bres, spoke with AccountingWeb.co.uk to share FinancialForce’s perspective on the pending changes associated with new revenue recognition landscape.
- Late in July, Oracle officially announced they were acquiring NetSuite and we jumped in to provide our comments on the industry news. First we posted a statement on our blog highlighting that “One of the biggest issues plaguing organizations is the FrankenCloud, and today we’ve learned that Oracle’s will grow into an even bigger monster as it gains more bolt on appendages including another cloud technology stack and another set of ERP and CRM apps.” Our comments were picked up in multiple outlets including Computerworld, eWEEK, Enterprise Times and others. Be sure to check out the blog for our full statement.
Now THAT’S hot.
