Central System of Record for Marketing Spend Enables Faster Reconciliation, Ability to Spend to Plan and Easily Reallocate Budget at both Regional and Global Level

DUBLIN, IRE. — 16 September, 2014 — Marketo Inc. (NASDAQ: MKTO), the leading provider of marketing software, today announced that Cornerstone OnDemand, (NASDAQ: CSOD), a global leader in cloud-based talent management software solutions, has centralised its global marketing budget and spend information using Marketo Financial Management.

Cornerstone OnDemand is now able to gain a single up-to-date view of its marketing spend at both the regional and global level for faster reconciliation, ability to spend to plan, as well as the ability to find and reallocate budget more easily.

Cornerstone OnDemand wanted to track the global spending of its individual marketing programmes, which was tactically challenging across multiple regions working in numerous currencies. Gaining detailed insight into actual programme spending worldwide was difficult to reconcile with multiple spreadsheets. This was further compounded by each team’s own reporting style and layout.

“With Marketo Financial Management everything is in one place. We have a central reporting capability that brings all of our plans, forecasts and actuals together into a single system of record,” said Alix Bourras, Online Marketer, Northern Europe for Cornerstone OnDemand. “We now have a single platform that everybody is using in the same way, which is a huge benefit. This means each of our marketing teams worldwide can easily collaborate on budgets, make better spending decisions faster and stay on budget. It also provides both our senior management and our marketing operations staff with a complete picture of marketing spend across teams, regions and currencies. This means we can also see instant return on investment reporting and make smarter decisions for the business.”
