What is finance forward?

It’s a way of approaching finance with an eye to the future. It’s about embracing new technology to lighten the load, freeing teams from burdensome activities like manual audits and monthly accruals. It’s about real-time data that brings true clarity to spending, so you can spot trends, make adjustments, and move forward with confidence.

It’s rethinking workflows, reporting, and analytics to empower employees, budget managers, finance teams, and leaders with the information they need, exactly when they need it.

It’s looking ahead instead of in the rear-view mirror.

At Center, our goal is to help companies make the most out of every dollar—and hour—spent so they can keep growing into profitable, thriving businesses. We are passionate about the transformative power of forward-looking technology and real-time data beginning with Center Expense and CenterCard, a complete solution for managing company expenses. 

Center is based in Bellevue, Washington, with an office in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
