How Venn Technology helps organizations streamline their finance & accounting operations

For the CFO that has the technology but is still stuck moving data manually between systems, we build integrations that connect siloed data to get the insights you need, faster. Our expertise in business automation helps nonprofit and for-profit teams focus more time on what matters—driving their mission. When people are stuck doing manual imports and exports, they’re focusing less on tasks that add true value.

Since our beginning, we’ve helped finance and accounting teams improve cash flow management and limit risk exposure with automated workflows between Sage Intacct and other systems. Additionally, we specialize in Salesforce configurations and support.

Custom Integrations are our thing - Venn Technology
