Natick, MA – May 19, 2020 – Centage Corporation (www.centage.com), leading provider of cloud financial software that transforms how businesses budget, forecast, analyze and report, was named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Fintech Solution category as well as two Silver Stevie Awards in the Financial Management Solution and the Achievement in Product Innovation categories respectively.
The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and nonprofit, large and small.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be virtually presented to winners during a live event on Wednesday, August 5.
Planning Maestro is a cloud-native platform for budgeting, planning, forecasting and analytics. It delivers a level of sophisticated financial intelligence typically only enjoyed by large enterprises, at a price point that makes it accessible for small and medium sized businesses. The platform allows finance teams to integrate data from multiple sources, easily build and manipulate driver-based financial models, predict balance sheet and cash flow performance with accurate and automated forecasts, as well as run what-if scenarios to test the impacts of strategic decisions.
More than 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.
Judges’ comments about the winning nominations include:
- “A single application which is capable of budgeting, reporting as well as forecasting performance while maintaining its user-friendly UI is impressive.”
- “Finance and Accounting are among the most archaic departments within small businesses. Software like this could help the planning process in a meaningful way. The ability to run scenarios and A/B test different outcomes at the SMB level is awesome.”
- “Great to see – the Fintech industry is starving for innovation as many processes are old and outdated. It’s good to see a company like yours redefining processes and optimizing the consumer experience.”
“We are honored to win multiple Stevie Awards this year – a Gold in the Fintech Solution category as well as two Silvers in the Financial Management Solution and Product Innovation categories,” said John Murdock, CEO at Centage. “These awards are a testament to the deep commitment Centage’s team has to providing best-in-breed planning tools for SMBs. It’s rewarding to know our efforts are making a difference. We appreciate the recognition from the American Business Awards community and will continue to innovate and evolve our solutions.”
More than 230 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.
“Despite the toughest business conditions in memory, American organizations continue to demonstrate their commitment to innovation, creativity, and bottom-line results,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher. “This year’s Stevie-winning nominations are full of inspiring stories of persistence, ingenuity, resourcefulness, and compassion. We celebrate all of their stories and look forward to showcasing them during our virtual awards ceremony on August 5.”
