Vena repeats top rankings, receives perfect recommend score and outperforms some of the largest vendors in the industry

 

Vena, the Intelligent Complete Planning platform loved by finance and trusted by business, today announced that it was recognized as an Overall Experience Leader and Trust Leader in the 2023 Dresner Wisdom of CrowdsⓇ Enterprise Performance Management Market Study. The study ranks vendors across a 33-point matrix and is based completely on the results of a user survey. It categorized Vena as an Overall Experience Leader in its Customer Experience Model and a Trust Leader in its Vendor Credibility Model. Vena customers who participated in the survey gave Vena a perfect Recommend score.

 Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) software enables businesses to forecast and strategically plan their finance operations, factoring in the internal and external factors that may influence their performance. In its 2023 report, Dresner found an uptick in adoption from the previous year, with 62% of respondents using EPM software (up nearly 10 percentage points from 2022). Midsize and small companies drove this increase, adopting the technology to better compete in today’s challenging macroeconomic conditions. 

“Vena continues to be a leader in this year’s Wisdom of Crowds EPM Market Study,” said Howard Dresner, Founder and Chief Research Officer of Dresner Advisory Services. “Its scores are generally above the overall sample, with key improvements in product, consulting and integrity. It is best in class in integration with third-party technologies, has a perfect recommend score and is an Overall Leader in the Customer Experience Model.”
