Napa Recycling Manages Growth & Profits with Budget Maestro

A recycling and waste services business, Napa Recycling is focused on saving resources, energy and money and needed to apply that same strategy to the financial management process. Specifically, the CFO sought a solution that could deliver better financial insight to manage short-term and long-term goals, more accurately manage costs and deliver higher profitability.

Budget Maestro from Centage was critical to delivering upon Napa Recycling’s goals. Easy-to-use and requiring very little IT resources, the software sped up the budgeting process and freed valuable resources for more strategic business purposes. In addition, Budget Maestro enabled Napa Recycling to plan for the future and manage growth, despite a wide array of market variables such as fluctuating fuel costs and evolving legislation such as the Affordable Care Act.  With Budget Maestro in place, the company can now more accurately manage costs and deliver higher profitability to investors.

“The recognition of Gold status for the Fastest Growing Company of the Year is a testament to our hard-working employees, dedicated to building and delivering strategic next generation budgeting and forecasting tools to support the needs of our customers worldwide,” said Barry Clapp, president and chief executive officer, Centage Corporation. “Further, we are thrilled that our customer, Napa Recycling received the Silver status for Best Deployment in the US.”
