Partnership to deliver Regulatory & Narrative Reporting Solutions as industry leaders expand beyond North America to EMEA.
Roseville, CA, May 6, 2019 – Certent, Inc., a leading provider of software-as-a-service solutions for financial disclosure management and equity compensation, announced today that it is deepening its partnership with Vena Solutions, the leader in finance process management software. Vena and Certent have worked together since 2015 and are expanding rapidly in international markets with a combined offering that provides intuitive and powerful regulatory and operational reporting solutions.
Vena is the first company to deliver a cloud platform of finance process management solutions that are trusted by finance and loved by business.

Certent’s Disclosure Management platform accesses the financial performance data within Vena and allows users to link this data across Microsoft products, updating tables and content from spreadsheets directly into regulatory documents in Microsoft Word® and management and board reports in Microsoft PowerPoint®. By connecting the reporting process from one step to the next, companies increase efficiency and maintain one version of the truth.
“Certent’s High-definition Reporting is a timely development that enables companies to combine the high-quality presentation-style reports that people prefer with the digital XBRL data that regulators require into a single web experience,” said Gary Simon, CEO of FSN & Leader of the Modern Finance Forum for CFOs on LinkedIn. “The Certent and Vena partnership is good news for Finance teams as they continue their journey to automate key finance processes that support their business. Innovation in finance is essential to meet constantly changing governance, risk and compliance mandates, globally.”
Vena and Certent will expand in North America, Europe and Middle East/Africa, targeting mid-market and enterprise companies.
