Cornerstone OnDemand Finds the Right Fit in FloQast

Jan 25, 2023 | By John Siegel

When Brianne Harris joined Cornerstone OnDemand in 2019, it didn’t take her long to realize how much the accounting team would benefit from a tool like FloQast.

Having used the product extensively at her previous company, Purple, she reached out to her old accounting success manager to see if they could get a demo on the books. 

“Having used FloQast in the past, I understood how the product could help streamline processes and communication,” she said recently. “Knowing that there were acquisitions on the horizon, and after considering other alternatives, it was obvious that FloQast was the right choice for Cornerstone. Ultimately, knowing that FloQast was easy to implement and worked seamlessly with NetSuite was what helped us to arrive at our decision.” 

But instead of receiving an email from someone on FloQast’s Sales team, Brianne got a call from someone else. Someone who also knew how much a tool like FloQast could help Cornerstone’s accounting department, because it was where he developed the idea for FloQast in the first place: Mike Whitmire.

Within a few months, the company was completing its implementation process, and, most importantly, user adoption proved seamless, something Brianne admitted she was nervous about initially. 

“We went from closing each month at an average of about 14-15 days to approximately eight days,” an approximate 44% reduction in days to close. “That is impressive considering the three acquisitions consummated within that time period.”

“FloQast is user-friendly and visually appealing, and the way it operates just makes sense for accountants,” Brianne said. “As a team leader, I was a little worried about change management. Implementing a new solution with such a big team can be a challenge when individuals are accustomed to certain ways of doing things. Still, FloQast was implemented quickly and has significantly helped our team improve their worksheets.”

Looking back at the impact FloQast has had on Cornerstone OnDemand’s accounting process, Brianne was emphatic about how positively things have changed.

“We went from closing each month at an average of about 14-15 days to approximately eight days,” an approximate 44% reduction in days to close. “That is impressive considering the three acquisitions consummated within that time period.”
