TERESA MACKINTOSH, CEO

Growing Your Business Through Improved Processes

How Trintech implemented strategic processes to spur significant growth.

From managing balance sheet reconciliations, journal entries, governance, compliance, and high-volume transaction matching, Trintech’s portfolio of financial solutions helps manage all aspects of the financial close process.

Before Trintech pioneered the development of Financial Corporate Performance Management (FCPM) software, organizations used spreadsheets to manage their financial close processes, which was often inefficient, costly, and prone to human error.

Today, over 3,100 organizations – including the majority of the Fortune 100 – across more than 100 countries rely on Trintech’s cloud-based software to increase efficiency, reduce costs, and improve governance and transparency.

CEO Teresa Mackintosh joined Trintech at the beginning of 2016 after working for publishing company Wolters Kluwer. Before Vista, Trintech didn’t have the resources to scale at the rate to which they aspired. While it had accomplished great success, the company couldn’t grow and expand the way the team knew it had the potential to do. Since partnering with Vista, Mackintosh and her team have relied on Vista Consulting Group (VCG) to help streamline Trintech’s business and operational processes from accounting to customer relationship management through the Vista Best Practices.

According to Mackintosh, VCG has become a critical resource to Trintech’s continued growth and success. While Trintech leadership has worked with VCG on numerous occasions, it particularly valued VCG’s support when the company faced challenges transitioning its finance department. Mackintosh recognized the situation needed a more hands-on approach and turned to the Vista team to make it happen. VCG worked with Mackintosh to bring in financial analysts who helped the Trintech finance team dissect its budgeting process.

Other times, VCG has played a more traditional consulting role for Trintech. For example, when the company started using a marketing automation system, VCG helped ensure the implementation went smoothly and offered advice on how to promote successful company-wide adoption of the software. Mackintosh describes Trintech’s relationship with VCG as collaborative and flexible. Both parties have the same goal: to build the value of the organization.

The VCG team played a strategic role in helping Trintech implement and formalize how it manages and identifies existing and potential customers. This renewed focus on customer success and marketing metrics was well-received throughout Trintech and helped Mackintosh and her team make better decisions across the board.

Since implementing a new customer management strategy, Mackintosh was able to leverage insights to improve Trintech’s go-to-market strategy, how it prioritizes sales focus areas, and how it views the total addressable market.

Since joining the Vista family and under Mackintosh’s leadership, Trintech has tripled its customer base and doubled its revenue. With its grasp on the market and strategic organic and inorganic growth, Trintech is expected to further expand its reach and customer portfolio.
