More organizations of all types, sizes, and sectors are investing in digital transformation—including enlisting finance automation SaaS platforms— to solve business challenges. An early result of the COVID-19 pandemic is that the newly volatile global economy requires companies to bridge gaps in financial, human, and other resources to continue to operate with some semblance of normalcy.
The last couple of months continuing to build our business during the COVID-19 crisis have seemed like years — for us, and for many of our customers. We’re all adapting to new ways of interacting with each other and with our customers.
At this moment, everyone is doing what they can to meet customers "where they are" and grow efficiently. Here are six ways our customers are using the flexibility of the Ordway billing and revenue automation platform to stabilize their business, and to better serve their customers during this challenging period.
In this post, we're not revealing names of the companies involved to protect their internal process and relationships with their customers.
Finding it hard to accomplish the ‘W’ in your company’s WFH protocols? We feel your pain. If you’re struggling to get down to business during these uncertain times, put one of these productivity hacks to work.
We had the pleasure of visiting with CompStak just before the COVID-19 social distancing efforts took hold in both New York City where CompStak is headquartered, and Ordway HQ in Washington, D.C.
CompStak, a scaling startup with around 100 employees, is the leading crowdsourced platform for commercial real estate data. Growing quickly with a fairly complex business model, CompStak realized that they needed to replatform parts of their finance stack to keep up with their growth. During this transformation, they knew they wanted to stay on QuickBooks as their general ledger if they could. Their adoption of the Ordway billing and revenue automation platform meant they could continue to use QuickBooks and also “say yes” to complex Enterprise deals with unique pricing and terms.
When we launched our billing and revenue automation platform to the world 18 months ago, I set high expectations for the founding team. Transforming the way sales and finance teams work together to modernize their business models is no small undertaking.
With customers around the world in industries including software development, healthcare, logistics, performance management, manufacturing, and finance, we’ve witnessed transformation first hand. Building on this foundation, today I’m excited to announce we’ve raised a $10M Series A led by CRV and joined by Clocktower Ventures, Lerer Hippeau, and Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Seed Fund.
The best aspect of working with Ordway clients is the fact that we get to watch our customers grow and thrive. A great idea, product/market fit, and team are critical to future success, but so is the infrastructure needed to scale. Oftentimes, we are fortunate to engage with customers right as they are re-imagining their billing architecture and infrastructure to enable more rapid growth and scale.
We are about to finish a wonderful 2019 which saw us gain clients around the world. Organizations large and small chose to work with us because of our ability to support their revolutionary new business models. SaaS-based billing and revenue automation is empowering companies better connect their sales and finance functions and focus on building deep, performance-based relationships with their customers. We’re excited to support our clients as they lead the way in transforming their business.
Founders from the Rise of the Rest portfolio (ROTR) descended on Washington DC to network, learn from each other, and take advantage of top-notch programming from the ROTR team.
Prior to the official kick-off of the summit, we welcomed Founders from across the country for a bit of pre-networking with other DC Tech leaders. We were happy to facilitate good discussions on a wide number of topics including scaling up.
Washington DC – November 7, 2019 – Ordway, a billing and revenue automation platform for scaling companies, is pleased to announce that Founder & CEO Sameer Gulati has been selected to present at the SaaSNorth Conference in Ottawa, Canada. Gulati will participate in a panel session titled “Your Winning Product Playbook,” scheduled for Wednesday, November 27th.
“Listening to customers is key, but so is a vision to fundamentally improve the way organizations and people run their businesses.”

This year’s Business of Software conference featured an experimental Unconference session where attendees could choose topics to discuss and debate.
I led a discussion about moving beyond simple subscriptions. It definitely struck a nerve with the attendees and the conversations that ensued centered around a few emerging themes facing all businesses.
