FloQast Continues Rapid Growth Through Addition of New Customers, Expansion of Team and 300+ Percent Increase in Revenue

FloQast, Inc., a provider of accounting close management software designed by and built for accountants, announced today that it added more than three dozen new customers in the 2016 third quarter. Additionally, as of September 30, 2016, the Company has grown its workforce by nearly 90 percent and increased revenue by more than 300% year-over-year.

FloQast is currently adding – on average – one new customer per day, as more and more companies recognize how the fast-to-implement, easy-to-use, cloud-based solution helps accounting departments streamline, manage and more efficiently close their books.

During the third quarter, FloQast acquired, among others, the following clients:

  • RedFin
  • Los Angeles Lakers
  • AdRoll
  • Dixie Group
  • SmugMug
  • NuSil
  • Spredfast
  • Trevali
  • Western Dental
  • ZAGG

With FloQast’s software, accounting professionals can work directly within the familiarity of Excel while reducing time to close by 40 percent, lowering their audit costs and more accurately and easily closing their books with no change to their business processes.

“The addition of these new customers is evidence that more and more leading organizations across myriad industries and of varying size trust FloQast to meet their close management needs. Our increasing client acquisition rate demonstrates that growing companies look to FloQast to speed their accounting close processes and lower costs,” explained Michael Whitmire, FloQast co-founder and chief executive officer.

“The month-end close process for many companies remains a manual, time-consuming process. Knowing there is an alternative that makes daily status meetings, long email chains and late nights in the office a thing of the past, while reducing close time and accuracy, is driving FloQast’s rapid growth. Our software is truly helping to transform accounting department operations and the way accountants work,” he concluded.

“With FloQast implemented, everyone in accounting is now on the same page and knows when tasks need to be accomplished and when they are due in order to close the books,” said Matt Southard, Controller at TeleSign. “All our balance sheet accounts are now being reconciled monthly, allowing the team to know if there are any further adjustments necessary before we publish financials to our C-suite/Board of Directors.”

FloQast, with monthly licensing rates starting at $79 per accountant, combines process management, reporting and collaboration into a single, intuitive solution that allows accounting departments to work together to quickly and accurately close their books. By directly integrating with both an organization’s document storage and financial applications, FloQast lets accountants work in Excel while keeping sensitive financial data secure in their own systems. This novel approach enables security, control and flexibility.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble. Why? Because your data center will not keep up with frenetic pace AWS, Microsoft and Google are rolling out new capabilities. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
"We are a monitoring company. We work with Salesforce, BBC, and quite a few other big logos. We basically provide monitoring for them, structure for their cloud services and we fit into the DevOps world" explained David Gildeh, Co-founder and CEO of Outlyer, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology.

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
