Customers Leverage FinancialForce to Run Connected Services Businesses
San Francisco, CA – October 25, 2022 – Certinia, the leading provider of customer-centric business applications across finance, services, and customer success teams, today announced that several customers are using its Services-as-a-Business platform to help power all aspects of their service delivery. The customers include global technology leader Thales Group, tax and compliance software provider Avalara, and design, engineering, and development company Kinetic Vision.
More accurate data
Thales Cloud Protection and Licensing (CPL)—part of the Thales Group—has standardized on Certinia Professional Services Automation (PSA) worldwide and engaged professional services from Certinia to assist with configurations. With all project data managed in Certinia PSA, the company can rely on the accuracy of project data and reports, and confidently identify anomalies and opportunities for improvement.
“Certinia PSA drives the highest levels of data quality across our professional services and higher levels of performance from our resources,” said David Laffineuse, Worldwide Manager Process, Tools and Integration, Thales CPL.
To support its continued growth, Avalara knew it needed to standardize on a system that operates natively on the Salesforce environment, where all orders originate and all projects must ultimately be captured. By implementing Certinia Professional Services Cloud and leveraging both Certinia PSA and Revenue Management, Avalara gained the tools it needed to manage its complex professional services business.
“Simple tools cannot solve complex problems. The sophistication of Certinia allows for solving complex problems,” said Tyler Flora, Senior Director, Professional Services, Avalara. “The reward at the end of that can be very powerful.”
Connected and flexible
As a fast-growing company, Kinetic Vision experienced the pain of manual processes and homegrown systems once it tripled in size. Every department struggled to efficiently handle basic tasks like project management, invoicing, and data management, needing to call upon multiple apps and colleagues to get work done. By implementing Certinia Financial Management and Certinia PSA, Kinetic Vision gained the visibility, flexibility and certainty needed to manage its growth path unimpeded.
“I love how customizable this platform is for our organization,” said Jim Topich, Senior Vice President, Kinetic Vision. “Everyone from sales, human resources and our project managers to accounting and our executive team are benefiting from our real-time data. As a result, we are on track for continuing our double-digit growth.
