Fluence Acquires Sturnis365 for Collaborative Disclosure Management and Narrative Reporting

Share

Fluence Technologies, the only provider of purpose-built financial consolidation, close and reporting software for high-growth businesses, today announced the acquisition of Sturnis365, the leading provider of intelligent, collaborative disclosure management and narrative reporting solutions.

Sturnis365 serves dozens of public, private and pre-IPO customers across Europe including AB InBev, Enel Group, Rothschild & Co., Bouygues Group, Ferragamo and KBC Bank. Like Fluence, Sturnis365 offers a familiar Microsoft Office interface and domain-specific workflow to automate collaborative report production, combining companywide data and narrative text for:

  • Immediate adoption among finance and business professionals compared to reporting available in their ERP system
  • Game-changing efficiency gains in report production compared to standalone Excel spreadsheets, Word and PowerPoint documents
  • Trusted, accurate internal and external reporting for any stakeholder, auditor or regulator

“Sturnis365 is a natural extension of our consolidation, close and reporting solution so CFOs can stay ahead of evolving reporting demands on the office of finance,” said Michael Morrison, CEO of Fluence Technologies. “Further, Sturnis365 strengthens our position in Europe, where more than 70% of their customers and partners are based. We also gain seasoned employees with strong ‘DNA’ in collaborative disclosure management.”

“We are excited about the value Fluence and Sturnis365 presents to our customers and partners,” said Didier Katz, co-founder and director at Sturnis365. “Companies across the globe are looking for a solution that combines financial consolidation, close and disclosure management in a single offering. Now, Fluence is the only player on the market that can meet this need."

Katz and fellow Sturnis365 co-founders Marco Mattei and Piero Ferreri are joining Fluence’s leadership team as part of the acquisition, along with their respective teams in product development, services, sales and marketing.

Fluence and Sturnis365 have already secured joint customers including cryptocurrency trading platform provider WonderFi.

“When we learned about Sturnis365, we were considering a legacy disclosure management solution that would have cost a significant amount and taken months to implement,” said John Rim, CFO at WonderFi. “Between its out-of-the-box functionality, Office integration and the fact that our finance team can manage the entire reporting process, we quickly realized how much more we’d benefit from Sturnis365.”

“Today’s CFOs don’t just need modern consolidation software, but end-to-end group accounting solutions spanning from account reconciliation to disclosure management.” said Carsten Bange, founder and CEO of BARC. “With its acquisition of Sturnis365, Fluence has broadened its offering to meet the changing needs of the constantly evolving finance function.”

"Acquiring Sturnis365 continues building on the vision of a complete financial corporate performance management suite that Michael Morrison and our team had when we originally invested in Fluence,” said Stephen Davis, managing partner at Banneker Partners, Fluence’s principal investor. “We look forward to Fluence continuing to deliver exceptional value to its customers."

The announcement comes just over six months after Fluence acquired self-serve, Excel-centric reporting software vendor XLCubed, and three months after unveiling its purpose-built account reconciliation and transaction matching solution. As a result, Fluence now has the market’s only end-to-end consolidation, close and reporting solution, and over 900 customers worldwide.

Visa Inc. (NYSE:V), the world leader in digital payments, today shared an updated look at how fraud has evolved since the height of the pandemic, with criminals simultaneously targeting online and offline vulnerabilities as our daily lives return to a blend of in-person and e-commerce experiences. “As in-person commerce returns to pre-pandemic levels, crooks are back to exploiting the physical points of vulnerability in stores, while continuing to capitalize on e-commerce through malware, ransomware and phishing attacks, among others,” said Paul D. Fabara, Chief Risk Officer at Visa. “In fact, we are continuing to see high rates of skimming, growing over the already elevated levels of the winter of 2021, where fraudsters are jumping on the rise of in-person activity.” Two new pieces of research – the latest Visa Biannual Threats Report and an MIT Technology Review Insights study “Moving Money in a Digital World,” released today in partnership with Visa – highlight new and returning thr
