Here at Centage, we believe in the idea of ‘front-office-finance’, which simply means understanding that CFOs, controllers, FP&A experts and others are critical to the success of any business. That’s why we’ve created a platform that gives finance teams the tools they need to confidently provide strategic recommendations to the executive team, propose action plans backed up by solid data and insights, and accurately report on progress and results. In short, we help our finance ‘Maestros’ make a measurable contribution to the success of their business.


Our mission is straightforward – to empower today’s finance professionals to make faster, more confident decisions and steer their organizations towards a healthy future.

By listening to mid-market CFOs and financial experts, and gathering insights from thousands of our own users, we’ve built a cost-effective FP&A solution that lets you focus on the value-add aspects of your job; making a measurable contribution to the success of your business. We do that in 5 tangible ways:

Get More Time to Focus on What Matters:
We know you’re busy. That’s why automation and built-in financial intelligence is at the core of our products. Let the software do the busy work, so you can focus on understanding and reporting on the company’s financial health.

Let Your Data Work Harder for You:
Today’s businesses run on data. Lots of it! Open connectivity to any data source means you can view the business in practical ways, quickly understand the impact of potential changes, and keep the company on track to meet its goals.

Better Communicate Your Financial Story:
Data is just data, unless you can use it to clearly communicate your findings and recommendations. We help you present sophisticated performance data and business insights in professional, easy-to-understand dashboards and reports.

Increase Confidence in Your Plan, Your Numbers, Your Team, and Your Future:
CEOs and boards ask tough questions daily. We ensure you and your team can quickly answer them with accurate, future-looking financial statements, and make data-driven recommendations to address risks and opportunities.

Align Your Technology Needs with Future success:
Finance leaders who embrace digital transformation can finally benefit from sophisticated financial intelligence and future-proofed architecture, without the high costs and complexity that have long plagued enterprise solutions.
