Vertex Enterprise Scores on Innovation with Ventana

  • December 06, 2013

Silicon Valley-based Ventana Research recently recognized Vertex® Enterprise in the category of Business Innovation for the Office of Finance in the technology research firm’s 2013 Technology Innovation Awards. While we are not big on publicizing accolades, this one is special.

Here is why.

First, Ventana Research is a leading niche analyst firm focused on business and information technology (IT). Ventana’s insights stem from extremely thorough, research-based benchmarking of people, processes, information and technology across the globe, and is highly regarded in the business and technology space. In addition, Ventana’s Robert Kugel and his colleagues have closely followed the tax technology industry over the past few years, attending conferences and conducting in-depth research with vendors, clients and potential clients in this field.

Second, Ventana has been highly inquisitive about what we’re doing with our technology, as well as why we’re doing it. The firm’s questions and comments about Vertex® Enterprise demonstrate that their analysts understand the value of the holistic approach we bring to the table. By evaluating Vertex® Enterprise in its “Business Innovation for the Office of Finance” category (where we finished first among 15 very competitive software offerings), confirms that Vertex’s continued investment in advanced technology is meeting the current and future needs of tax professionals. The award makes all of us here at Vertex proud, in large part because we earned the recognition for our innovation.

Lastly, Ventana’s award, which “distinguishes pioneers that have developed clear visionary and transformative technology,” validates that our vision is on target and verifies that Vertex’s continued investment in advanced technology is meeting the current and future needs of tax professionals.

But please don’t take my word for it; I encourage you to read Ventana Senior Vice President, Research, Robert Kugel’s comments and analysis on the award here.
