By building a cloud-based performance management solution around Excel, it was inevitable that users – and especially administrators – would find Vena easy-to-use, both inside and beyond the finance department.
Albany, NY (PRWEB) June 14, 2016
Vena Solutions, the fastest growing provider of cloud-based corporate performance management (CPM) software, is proud to announce that BPM Partners has named the company a Core Vendor and leader in customer satisfaction in the CPM market. In its 2016 Pulse of Performance Management Survey, the renowned research firm gave Vena top marks for customer satisfaction, and the highest satisfaction score (4.5 out of 5.0) for solutions administrators.
The BPM report comes on the heels of the 2016 CPM Value Matrix from Nucleus Research, which named Vena a market leader alongside industry giants including IBM, Oracle and SAP. Combined, the two reports illustrate Vena’s growing reputation for customer satisfaction, industry-leading growth and the functionality and usability of its performance management solutions.
“With our success a direct function of our customers’ satisfaction, we’re delighted to receive such high scores from those very customers,” said Don Mal, CEO of Vena Solutions. “Given the importance of administrators in the performance management process, we’re particularly thrilled that Vena got their top stamp of approval.”
The primary driver behind Vena’s leadership – and its main competitive advantage – is its use of native Excel as an interface into companies’ performance management data. The company credits Excel’s familiarity, flexibility and widespread use for the high adoption and rapid implementation of its solutions.
“These results clearly validate our decision to embrace Excel as the best way to drive user satisfaction and adoption,” added Mal.
“We’ve been watching Vena’s rapid growth trajectory over the past few years so we’re not surprised at their high satisfaction ratings,” said Craig Schiff, President and CEO of BPM Partners. “By building a cloud-based performance management solution around Excel, it was inevitable that users – and especially administrators – would find Vena easy-to-use, both inside and beyond the finance department.”
