July 12, 2018 – XLerant Outranks 14 BPM Vendors for Top Spot in Ease-of-Use, Customer Support, Price-for-Value…and More

2018 BPM Pulse of Performance Management Survey from BPM Partners reveals ease-of-use is most important software evaluation criteria among financial leadership teams.

XLerant, provider of the leading cloud-based budgeting, forecasting and management reporting software BudgetPak, is pleased to announce that their purpose-built solution has been the top-ranked for ease-of-use for the third year in a row, according to results from the 2018 BPM Pulse of Performance Management Survey. XLerant topped 14 other BPM software providers to achieve the number one ranking in Ease-of-Use, and also ranked number one in the categories of: Customer Support, Price-for-Value, Ease-of-Doing-Business, Training, and Consulting.

Published by BPM Partners, a leading independent authority on business performance management solutions, the BPM Pulse Survey results come directly from each vendor’s “users” or customer base. In addition to evaluating software performance, the survey assesses new and evolving industry trends and customer priorities for BPM software solutions. From the 330 valid respondents to the 2018 survey, “ease-of-use” was selected as the most important attribute when evaluating a new BPM software solution.

“XLerant continues to lead the BPM industry in ease-of-use – which is a top priority for CFOs and finance teams,” explains Craig Schiff, CEO of BPM Partners. He adds, “Software with high ease-of-use saves time in implementation and training, increases adoption (maximizing software ROI), and engages all end-users – regardless of their level of software or financial expertise.”

“We are honored to continue to receive top rankings from our customers, and this year is especially meaningful,” shares Joanne E. Brunn, XLerant CEO. “We’ve never wavered from our path of creating a best-in-class software designed to engage both financial and non-financial end-users in the budgeting process.  It is rewarding and validating to see that the priorities of the industry and our focus are so well aligned.”
