Framingham, MA (July, 6, 2022) – Centage Corporation (www.centage.com), the leading provider of cloud FP&A solutions to SMB finance teams, announced that it was ranked for the third straight year as an Overall Leader in both Customer Experience and Vendor Credibility - improving its position in the Vendor Credibility model - in the 2022 Dresner Advisory Services Wisdom of Crowds® Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Study. Centage also maintained a Perfect Score for Likelihood to Recommend.
“Centage has once again improved its position as a market leader,” said Howard Dresner, founder, and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services. “The vendor rankings are based solely on a survey of end users, and Centage continues to show strong performance as an industry leader, with every Centage customer who participated recommending them. We congratulate Centage on its strong performance and leadership position in 2022.”
In this year’s study, Centage scored above the overall sample in all categories of measurement, with improvements in quality of technical support and integrity. Of specific note within the technical support scores are key improvements in support professionalism, product knowledge, and responsiveness. In addition, Centage was acknowledged by Dresner Advisory Services as best in class for sales contractual terms and conditions, with a 100% recommendation score.
“We are honored to be acknowledged again this year as a leader in experience and credibility and thrilled to see that Centage scored above the overall sample in all categories and saw improvement in several categories again this year in Dresner’s 2022 survey,” said Centage CEO, John Murdock. “It demonstrates that the investments we are making to evolve our product and our organization are being well received by the market and meeting the needs of our customers. It’s rewarding to us all to know that our efforts are making a difference.
