"Great customer support"

What do you like best?

I went from knowing zero about the equity management system, to feeling very comfortable moving around with the help of the support documents, support videos and the great support team. They are quick to respond and super helpful. We have very complex stock options and the staff are so willing to guide me through the process and empower me with the knowledge to move forward on my own.

What do you dislike?

We are audited every year and to be able to prove out the analysis is important. I would like to see Certent be able to show the formulas behind the numbers and be able to offer a 409A option as they house all of our data anyways, it would make it easier for our company.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it, way better than excel tracking of the data.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solving the problem of tracking all of our options and securities so that we can send to the auditors the data in a clean format each year. The auditors spend very little time on this topic, thus saving us money on the audit costs.

"Easy to use tool with a helpful support team"

What do you like best?

The tool is easy to utilize and significantly better than tracking on spreadsheets. From import templates to standard reporting, there are help guides to direct you along the way.

What do you dislike?

Non-standard transactions can cause issues, because system rules are rigid in certain areas. The help desk team is well versed in work-around procedures for non-standard issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure to fully consider long-term accounting needs during set up.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We now have streamlined processes and recordkeeping. We save time each month and each quarter in our financial reporting process.
