Yesterday, we invited some of the most interesting companies in Boston to the Ordway billing bash. The main purpose was to celebrate and connect parts of organizations that don’t seek the limelight and oftentimes are feeling the pain of data issues that lay between an organization’s CRM and their accounting software. We wanted to provide the community an opportunity to get together and celebrate successes that too often go unnoticed. We highlighted the incredible work of Slater Latour and the entire Springboard Retail team who transformed their billing process to facilitate next-level scale for Springboard Retail.
Billing Rock Star Award goes to Springboard Retail
Sameer Gulati, Founder and CEO of Ordway, presented the Ordway Billing Rock Star award to Springboard Retail as a testament to their work becoming a relentlessly efficient finance and accounting team (and true organizational rock stars).

“I’m accepting this award on behalf of the entire Springboard Retail team who worked alongside Ordway to re-imagine our contracting, accounts receivable, and revenue management functions,” said Slater Latour, who oversees Finance at Springboard Retail. “Our Point of Sale (POS) platform’s business model combines a recurring SaaS fees, multiple subscription tiers and product configurations, implementation, and professional services fees, with a range of payment and billing cycles. It gets complicated really quickly, and our legacy systems couldn’t keep up. The Ordway team helped us simplify our offering and even provided us functionality for our Sales team to configure quotes out to our customers.”
The event was held at Democracy Brewing in Boston. Like the brewery’s goal of crafting great beer in a small-d democratic organization, Ordway is democratizing the power of enterprise-level billing and revenue management software for scaling companies around the world.
Other attendees to the event represented a cross-section of the Boston tech community. From VCs and CEOs, to finance and customer success executives, the “billing bashers” demonstrated how cross-functional, and small-d democratic, getting paid by your customers is within an organization. A unifying software platform can become a source of truth within a company and serve as a way for scaling companies to eliminate manual workarounds in the billing process so their teams can reach their full potential.
