The FoundationIP® Community – A Partnership Driven by Innovation

At CPA Global, our customers are partners in the development and evolution of our products. The cornerstone of this approach is the Software Innovation Board, a group of more than 15 FoundationIP® customers who meet three times a year with the FoundationIP® product team to discuss improvements.

This is augmented by the Independent User Group, a group open to all FoundationIP® customers to share best practices and raise ideas with the Software Innovation Board.

Our partner approach to development allows us to link product innovation to real and tangible improvements raised by the FoundationIP® community and, most importantly, to give you a voice and sense of ownership in the growth of the product.
