About Us

Our mission is to improve the financial health of all businesses so their people can thrive.

A healthy business means progress, security, and sustainability. When a business lacks financial discipline it hurts – layoffs, salary cuts, underwater options – we've all experienced this in some way or another. At Trace, we believe financial discipline is a core principle of business and employees should trust in how their company manages its finances.

Trace's products instill trust by helping people make faster and smarter financial decisions, ensuring compliance, and providing efficient and scalable operations. We're building the future of Finance with people who are friendly, bright, and passionate.
