About the Company

Founded in 2009, Certinia, formerly FinancialForce, initially aimed to deliver ERP on Force.com. After a decade of investment, our Professional Services Cloud has become the most trusted PSA solution on the market. Recently, we've launched new products in two markets with Services CPQ and Customer Success Cloud, and we’ve expanded our ERP Cloud offering with FP&A, creating a comprehensive platform for services businesses. This evolution of the business drove our decision to rebrand in May 2023 and align our name with our promise and future potential.
