2021: The Year in Review

New Blog Images49 21ff74d0d6bc66f968f08fcbb07b87f9 2000

At the start of 2021, the world hoped the New Year would eventually see a reprieve from the pandemic, but COVID-19 had other plans, proving that it’s not quite done with us yet. So, instead of getting back to pre-pandemic routines, everyone has had to figure out how to stay connected in a meaningful way while operating in fully remote or hybrid environments for the long haul. Resiliency and adaptability were key themes for 2020, and we believe connectivity and extension were the underlying thread running throughout 2021.

True to form, necessity proved to be the mother of invention this year as so many within the Tesorio community found ways to stay connected. The results speak to everyone’s collective success at just that.

For our part, we talked a lot about Connected Finance this year, we launched a new look along with AR Essentials and Tesorio Connect, and we were named as the Easiest Company to Do Business With on G2, and ranked second in the early-stage category of the IA40 list of top intelligent applications.

But more important are the outstanding successes of our customers, many of whom:

So many of our customers won awards this year, they are too numerous to recount here, but congratulations to all as we celebrate some of our community’s most notable financial accomplishments of 2021.
