Despite building a great product and amassing close to 1000 customers, LiquidPlanner struggled to continue on the same growth trajectory.
Customers expected broader capabilities. Competitors had more money. And as access to capital tightened, the board decided to look for a partner.

Even though the acquisition happened a few weeks ago, the focus is squarely on delivering better portfolio management capabilities and confidence to project teams than anyone else in the market.
