Our Story

We are a small SaaS start-up in San Ramon, CA, founded in 2000 to address the increasingly expensive application costs that service firms are facing. Our solution was to allow customers to treat their application use as a billable project asset (this eventually became Expense-2-Project).

Our first market strategy was to work with software providers to offer the solution, essentially renting out software. Although the technology is still successfully used by several partners, the approach wasn’t picked up by enough companies to build momentum. So we decided to build a new solution to directly sell to businesses, Process Meter (PM).

Once it was working at our investment partner, we found that the data could be used to solve many other licensing and application use needs. This led to the PM Platform. We’re now working to extend the platform to include new features like collaboration reporting, analytics, and real-time alerting.
