About Us

We strive to improve the financial performance of all businesses so their people can thrive.

A high performing business means growth, security, and sustainability. When a business struggles financially it hurts – layoffs, salary cuts, underwater options. We impact financial performance by transforming how finance collaborates with the business to plan and execute.

We're building the future of finance technology with a team that is friendly, bright, and passionate.
