Ordway may be new to the tech scene in Washington, D.C., but it’s quickly leading the way in helping to modernize the end-to-end sales-to-finance process.
Ordway is home to a billing and revenue automation platform that aims to make it easier to manage subscriptions and contracts, bill, collect and grow revenue at scaling businesses.
The software company has grown to service companies around the world in the software development, logistics, finance, point of sale, real estate, advertising, advocacy and healthcare industries including companies such as Ocrolus, Dispatch, BAO Systems, CircleCI, Springboard Retail and Klara.
Ordway team members work to reduce many manual billing, revenue and invoicing processes for its user base. Its platform helps in managing recurring subscriptions, contract details, pricing transactions, invoicing customers, collecting payments and recognizing revenue.
With team members in Brazil, India and stateside, Ordway is steadily growing and expanding internally while increasing the number of clients using its finance app-styled platform. Employees credit the company as being a fast-paced, collegial, transparent and collaborative environment where everyone’s input is valued.
Employees also say hard work doesn’t go unnoticed at Ordway. The staff is treated to catered lunches every Friday where members socialize and enjoy the fruits — and vegetables — of their labor.
Team members work together to roll out new platform features and enhancements that assist in making the user experience more efficient and revenue reporting data that’s easy to understand.
Problem solving and collaboration make up the fabric of Ordway’s culture. The company sweats the billing and revenue details so its users don’t have to.

I’ve been involved in early-stage startups in the past, so it’s thrilling to get in at this stage of the company where there’s already a customer base that’s finding such great value from the platform.”Sushma Ashutosh Client Services Manager

Everyone is encouraged to take the initiative to dive into any area or department that interests them. Ordmates typically go beyond their job descriptions to get something done and that makes it easier to build on your skill set and talents.
Managers and team members are receptive to pitching in their knowledge and guidance whenever possible. We’re a team that’s made up of people from various professional backgrounds who have become experts in this industry because of what they learned at Ordway.
