As a software partner we work with our customers, software provider and business partners to build a service which delivers real benefit dealing with all the usual market variables along the way. So we're more than proud of this months milestones, which we've achieved thanks to a great team, the right attitude as well as capability.
The bottom line is all businesses have to deal with frustrations and knock backs, but they have to focus on the end game to grow successfully, sustainability and deliver a great service to clients.
Our mission at Formulate is to build intelligent, elegant financial planning solutions for our clients, putting finance first with accountancy qualified, technically certified and business savvy consultants.
Like all businesses there are losses and gains, in sales, as well as people, so we've seen our fair share of expansion, investment in new systems, training and the creation of new partnerships and relationships across marketing, account management and consultancy. It all adds up to new learning and a lot of change.
But despite all the challenges and frustrations a long the way it's the right attitude which has delivered success which we are proud of, including big milestones, which this month included:
Hitting $1 million of ARR (annual recurring revenue)
Reaching 100+ customers
Clients in over a dozen countries worldwide
A different breed of Partner
We are a little different from many of our fellow partners in that we are dedicated Adaptive Insights partners -which as a choice was a bit of a punt five years ago! We've had to work harder than most to sell the message of Adaptive Insights alone and build our own marketing message, sales pipeline and delivery methodology; But we believed the strength of our knowledge, consultancy and message was worth the risk.
Customers certainly appreciate our specialism. Finance focused with strong technical capability means we can offer our clients the full Adaptive Insights suite from integration to consolidation, analytics and of course planning. We are ERP and GL agnostic, and as such have no favouritism to sell. It also means we can work with any data from any source.
As Formulate we love selling to new clients in new sectors learning their businesses and forging new relationships. We all also love expanding our horizons into new unchartared territories, and more than anything we love building smart, elegant solutions for our clients and supporting them to become self sufficient.
So what have we learnt in our five years? Well despite what is happening around you, the agendas of others, bucking the common approach pays off as long as you have the right attitude, passion, skills and knowledge to push forward.
So thanks to our clients, our people and our partners for helping us to get here, and we look forward to working with you for many years to come.
