Planful Adds New Global Firms to Fast-Growing Partner Ecosystem

Planful Adds New Global Firms to Fast-Growing Partner Ecosystem

As Planful’s Vice President, Global Partnerships, I guide our partner team as they scour the globe in search of top-tier organizations with finance and accounting expertise, deep technology and domain experience, and a proven track record of achieving long-term success for their clients. Our team already supports over 50 Planful partners. Still, we’re never done searching for more firms in more regions to help the Office of the CFO innovate faster, plan more effectively, and act with confidence.

In just the first three months of 2022, we welcomed eight partners into the Planful partner network. Each firm brings its unique industry expertise and regional success to the program and will help increase Planful’s exposure in exciting new markets, including new and expanded coverage across South America, Asia Pacific, and Africa.

New Partners for Planful’s Growing Global Presence

Planful is seeing extreme interest in our modern technology for the Office of the CFO. We nearly doubled new customer acquisitions in 2021, and in the same time, we tripled the size of our partner channel to help serve this growing customer base. Part of that growth comes from our continued global expansion, which saw 110% growth in international customer additions in 2021, and office openings in London, Sydney, and Toronto. Our amazing partner team has been working nonstop to support our growth in every continent except Antarctica (give us time!).
