New year, new PR picks – FinancialForce news highlights from January 2017
Can you believe January 2017 is in the books? It feels like just yesterday we were popping champagne to ring in the New Year. Last month was truly a whirlwind, action packed with exciting moments like customer wins and news, contributed articles, oh and in case you missed it, we announced a new CEO!
Check out January’s PR Picks below and head over to our press center for a full view of last month’s coverage:
1) “New Year, New CEO!” That’s the saying, right? Early in January we were thrilled to announce that Tod Nielsen has taken the role of FinancialForce CEO and President. The appointment followed another strong year in which we grew more than 40% and are rapidly approaching the $100 million annual revenue run rate milestone. Tod was most recently Executive Vice President of Platform at Salesforce and CEO of Heroku. He is a seasoned leader with a proven record of taking technology companies to the next level by accelerating their innovation and revenue growth. We are excited to have Tod join the family and lead us towards many more years of success. Many publications covered the news including TechCrunch, The Wall Street Journal, Fortune, Forbes, CRN and more.
2) Also in January we announced that Cincinnati Bell went live on FinancialForce Professional Services Automation (PSA), with 1,400 employees already achieving time savings and productivity gains from the app. Cincinnati Bell SVP and CIO Kevin Murray commented that, “FinancialForce is helping us make fast decisions, and helping our employees maximize their time. We expect our utilization to increase and are looking forward to exploring how FinancialForce can help us streamline processes further, better serve customers and grow as a company.” Enterprise Times, Channele2e and others reported.
3) FinancialForce CFO, John Bonney, authored a piece for CPA Practice Advisor titled “How Small Accounting Firms Find Big Advantages in the Cloud,” outlining how cloud services can enable CPAs to be strategic partners who can offer more in-depth and timely financial advice to help their small and medium size business clients succeed.
4) Diginomica profiled customer and partner Traction on Demand last month and their unique use of FinancialForce PSA and Salesforce. Traction on Demand is a 250+ person cloud consulting firm who developed a tool called Traction Pulse, a new way to use its existing customer relationship management (CRM), professional services automation (PSA) and marketing applications in order to track employee happiness, increase employee engagement, improve recruiting, and grow the business.
