CPM leader notches impressive year-over-year revenue growth alongside continued recognition of platform capabilities
Vena, the Intelligent Complete Planning platform loved by finance and trusted by business, today announced that it entered the second half of 2023 with considerable customer momentum and revenue growth following fiscal H1. The company welcomed more than 200 new customer wins and saw continued success across Vena’s Services and Solutions Partner Ecosystem.
Vena’s award-winning cloud corporate performance management (CPM) software empowers leading companies and organizations worldwide, such as Kansas City Chiefs, Coca-Cola Consolidated, WWF-Canada and over 1,600 more, to plan for anything and succeed through today’s uncertainty. For Metro Supply Chain Group, Vena has helped them run multiple scenarios and use multiple forecasts to aid decision making. “Operational metrics are important, but the story is not complete until you can see how they impact your costs, revenue and EBITDA margins. Vena is our way of bringing that all together and measuring the health of our business,” explains Paolo Mari, VP of Business Analytics and Commercial Management at Metro Supply Chain Group.
According to Vena CEO Hunter Madeley, Vena’s growth has been fueled by the ever-increasing need for customers to derive insights from internal and external data and take purposeful action.
“Our customers are leveraging Vena to navigate their best path through what continues to be highly variable market conditions for most organizations. The Vena Insights product, which puts the power of AI in the hands of our customers, has seen tremendous uptake this year as finance and operations teams become stronger strategic partners for their organizations. Whether leaning on the experience and knowledge of our service and support teams, or the strength of our expansive Partner ecosystem, our customers are taking full advantage of the investments we continue to make in our platform. We remain grateful to the entire Vena community for their continued support, and we look forward to serving record numbers of customers and partners in 2023,” says Madeley.
