Xledger was founded in Silicon Valley in 2000. But the Xledger story begins four years earlier. In 1996, software architect Jarle Sky moved his family to Palo Alto, California, arriving just in time to witness the dot-com boom and its explosion of web-based businesses.
At the time, Jarle was the co-founder and product architect of one of Europe’s largest on-premises ERP systems. He had already recognized the limitations of the client-server ERP platform. Now, as he watched the dot-com boom accelerate, Jarle had a vision: a business management solution created and hosted entirely in the multi-tenant cloud. A solution based on subscription, accessible via browser from anywhere in the world. A solution that would empower companies to face a digital future.
He brought his vision to the executives of his previous company. Seeing their disinterest, he decided to resign and pursue the dream on his own. In 2000, Jarle founded Xledger in Palo Alto, California, where he was soon joined by former colleagues May Helen Kvarberg and Lennart Holen.
The team began a painstaking development process. They shared the vision of a highly automated and scalable finance solution that would grant users access to robust insight tools. Aiming to free finance teams from as many manual tasks as possible, the team examined each accounting process to see which elements could be automated.
When it launched in 2006, Xledger Cloud ERP posed an immediate challenge to established on-premise vendors: a true cloud-based finance software solution, complete with seamless updates, unified design, superior performance, and powerful functionalities.
Today, Xledger is the most automated and insightful ERP system on the market. Trusted by globally trusted accounting firms BDO and PwC, we empower tens of thousands of customers worldwide.
