Sudozi agrees to $4.3 million in order to simplify business management ...

Sudozi, an Austin-based company that offers a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform to assist businesses improve their money management capabilities, has today announced that it has raised $4.3 million in a seed round.

When dealing with financial situations, finance managers may be confronted with a lot of manual grunt work. This might range from surprise invoices coming across without context to endless meetings to reconcile departmental budgets. Many often receive random pings for approvals and guidance throughout their day, leaving little space for the main task of strategic decision-making and saving money.

Modern finance teams want to have vendor procurement, headcount, and budget tracking done on one platform, but the data they need to do so is stuck in spreadsheets and disparate systems. Most companies lack the capacity to create an internal system to connect all the dots and provide their finance teams the visibility they need to support rapid business growth, according to Rose Punkunus, the founder and CEO of Sudozi.

Sudozis platform centralizes everything

Punkunus and his team developed an integrated, real-time system that streamlines workflows and brings all vendor, spending, and budget information together in one location. This allows finance teams to collaborate, approve, and track expenditure with trust and to make informed decisions.

The platform is quick to use and easy to set up. We work with payment tools, and we see the full spectrum of AP (accounts payable) systems used by our customers, according to Punkunus.

Sudozi''s customers prefer vendor renewal alerts, improved real-time budget access vs. actuals, and easy-to-use spend request workflows to ensure proper approvals and alignment.

De asemenea, the platform offers automated department roles and authorizations to securely share relevant information with department leaders, live integration with QuickBooks Online to complete an organization financial picture, and a consolidated database and contract repository to monitor all vendors, statements of work (SOWs), commitments, and renewals in order to avoid unnecessary budget and surprise expenses.

Competition

While the offer sounds promising, it must be noted that this is a relatively competitive area with many players already active in the market, including Brex, Precoro, Bento, Vic.ai, and Airbase. Punkunus, however, claims their platform has made a difference from the crowd by its simple setup and increased connectivity to show the complete financial picture.

While an enterprise finance platform may take months to build, and a team of consultants to implement were up and running in hours and automating workflows in days, she said. We also connect to your ERP, surfacing financial data and budget insights directly in the app.

Mar Hershenson of Pear Venture Partners, the CEO of the Venture Capital Group, pointed out that other solutions merely create a dashboard debacle and neither automate workflows nor provide an opportunity for informed decision-making and collaboration, but that Sudozi is making real-time finance a reality.

The company will today invest its capital in building on its potential future, further expand its capabilities. It will expand the size of its organization, enhance the capabilities of its solution, and expand market reach. The CEO did not comment on the exact product plans, but the company''s immediate focus will be on developing additional data integrations with financial tools like Sage Intacct and Oracle NetSuite.

According to an Ernst & Youngsurvey, 53% of finance executives believe that AI could take over half of their finance tasks over the next three years.
