Our team is on a mission to help companies compete on a global scale through the Ordway platform. Today, I’m proud to announce our release of multi-entity billing and revenue management which means businesses can expand internationally with ease. 

As your business grows, the last thing you want to worry about is if your finance stack will scale with you. I commissioned our team to leapfrog the limitations of legacy software and find solutions to multi-entity support that historically were only available to the Enterprise. Historically, only costly and clunky legacy ERP software could support multi-entity companies with their SaaS billing and accounting needs. This translated into manual workarounds and spreadsheets and hundreds of thousands spent on software fees and professional services, placing a drag on even the most nimble companies. Today, companies can run their business units independently and still unify billing, revenue schedules, and reporting within one system on the Ordway billing and revenue automation platform.

What Multi-Entity Support Means

  • Create unique invoice templates for each entity
  • Assign products and plans to appropriate chart of accounts codes

Scale Revenue with International Expansion, Mergers and Acquisitions, and other Multi-Entity Use Cases

  • Are you ready to establish multiple entities in 2021?

  • Are you compelled to establish entities to comply with local regulations and laws?
  • Are you considering establishing a wholly owned subsidiary? A Joint Venture?
