OPINION: Aptitude-Revstream is one of a handful of highly focused finance tools offered by Aptitude Software. The company has deep expertise in the finance function, particularly as it relates to revenue accounting and high-volume finance processing requirements. In spite of the parent company’s relative size and resources, the Revstream development has not kept up with the pace of the overall market in terms of its growth or product innovation. The transition to a multi-tenant cloud solution has proven challenging at a time when the requirements landscape is expanding. Revstream’s market visibility has been modest while competitors have increased their spending and improved execution. We continue to view Revstream as a viable, stable offering, but the company’s current rating reflects our view of a relative underperformance of the product and business vis-à-vis its peer group. Given the product and customer base, we see significant room for improvement.
USE CASE: High growth mid-size ($250 million+) and large enterprises seeking hosted (single tenant) revenue scheduling and automation functionality from a supplier willing to adapt the solution to specific requirements.
COMPETITORS: Oracle, SAP, Softrax, Workday, Zuora.
