FinancialForce.com, the cloud applications company, today announced alliances with Jobscience, a native Force.com Social Relationship Management solution for hiring, and AccountAbility Solutions, Inc., a native Force.com fixed asset and remote asset tracking application provider. Jobscience and AccountAbility both offer best-of-breed, FinancialForce.com-ready solutions that take advantage of the power and accessibility of the Cloud to offer industry-specific and specialized business applications. These alliances extend FinancialForce.com’s growing ecosystem of application and implementation partners, continuing the momentum the company has created in the first half of the calendar year.
In addition to the new partnerships, the company also announced that Eric Moreau, formerly with SAP, has joined the company in the newly created position of partner success manager. The role was created to nurture FinancialForce.com’s growing partner ecosystem, which also includes implementation partners such as Baker Tilly, Centerstance, CLD Partners and IconATG as well as a rapidly growing list of ISV partners including Docusign, Rootstock, Scribe, and Xactly.
Jobscience-FinancialForce.com Alliance to Optimize HR Processes
Staffing and professional services firms can now use the combination of FinancialForce.com and Jobscience to find the best people to staff projects, to capture time entered and to invoice customers for services delivered. Since both solutions are built on the Force.com platform, the apps are inherently integrated, sharing a common data model, security model, workflow engine and reporting tools. Jobscience’s agile Social Relationship Management solution brings a unique combination of social, mobile, and CRM processes to talent management, keeping corporations and staffing agencies connected with and attracting top talent. For the past four years, Jobscience has been voted the AppExchange Customer Choice Award in HR and Recruiting by salesforce.com customers.
“Many of our customers are staffing firms who are recruiting and placing personnel at a client’s location,” said Ted Elliott, CEO and Founder of Jobscience. “By coupling Jobscience and FinancialForce.com, they can seamlessly track hours and bill the client in an ‘order-to-invoice’ end-to-end solution that is highly flexible and scalable. Being a FinancialForce.com partner has greatly enhanced what we can offer our customers.”
AccountAbility-FinancialForce.com Alliance Enhances Asset Management, Integration of Depreciation Journals
By integrating with FinancialForce Accounting, AccountAbility’s growing customer base has an easy, Cloud-based way to manage and record the appropriate depreciation journal entries for assets. Fixed Asset Tracker from AccountAbility Solutions is a complete fixed and remote asset tracking application. It tracks assets assigned to or on loan to users, accounts, contacts or other locations. In addition to tracking assets on loan to employees, it tracks additional, business-critical information such as warranty expiration dates, warranty service organizations, insurance policy information, and more. For just a few cents a month per asset, AccountAbility allows companies to track the fixed assets they give to employees or contractors, saving thousands in missing fixed assets.
"We are excited to be a FinancialForce.com ready partner,” said Gordon Derk, President, AccountAbility Solutions Inc. “Through our association with FinancialForce.com we are able to offer completely integrated asset tracking to our joint customers with a 100% cloud based solution that is completely integrated with FinancialForce Accounting. Not only does Fixed Asset Tracker generate and post depreciation transactions, it tracks the location and supporting information for expensed or capitalized assets."
In addition to the inherent integration of a common platform, AccountAbility has been an early adopter of FinancialForce ClickLink™ to provide point-and-click configuration of posting rules used to push asset related transactions into the General Ledger. ClickLink provides a “clicks not code” approach to the definition of field mapping and document posting rules, dramatically reducing the effort required by Force.com ISVs to integrate with FinancialForce.com’s applications.
Expanded Internal Support for the Growing FinancialForce.com Ecosystem
To better serve and support this growing partner ecosystem, FinancialForce.com also added SAP veteran Eric Moreau in the new role of partner success manager, where he will help partners best take advantage of their FinancialForce.com relationship from both a technological and marketing perspective. Moreau’s appointment follows numerous new partnerships that have already been announced in the first half of calendar 2012, including partnering with Scribe, Zuora, Rootstock, and Baker Tilly. Moreau has 14 years working in the partnership space, including 9 years at SAP as a senior solution advisor.
“The rapid growth of our ecosystem is great validation for the power and potential of the Cloud,” said Jeremy Roche, CEO, FinancialForce.com. “We have come a long way from the old ERP approach. Today, companies want to be a part of healthy, vibrant ecosystems with integrated and powerful solutions. We are pleased to welcome Jobscience and AccountAbility to the fold and to be able to offer all of our partners even better support with the addition of Eric Moreau to our team.”
