Our origin story

It all started with a rolling forecast. Actually, the frustration related to creating a rolling forecast. The mission to simplify the rolling forecast then snowballed into the realization that capable FP&A and planning tools were too expensive and so complex it took teams of people use them. World class planning tools should be accessible to everyone at any size company, and of course rolling forecasts should be easy. The world needed a planning solution purpose built for growth companies, thus Jirav was born.

How do you pronounce "Jirav"?

And why the giraffe?

We pronounce “Jirav” just like our correctly-spelled namesake and mascot, the noble giraffe. For us the giraffe is more than a mascot or logo, it is representative of our approach to financial excellence. The giraffe is the tallest living land mammal giving it the maximum forward looking view and greatest reach while still rooted firmly on the ground.

Similarly, Jirav is constantly running, continuously digesting data across a wide range of systems to produce the most insightful, accurate results possible. And the Jirav team is known to be "always on" fueled by a passion for helping our customers succeed.

Did you know?

Every customer, partner and advisor is a part of the Jirav Tower helping to innovate the Jirav solution and innovate the practice of FP&A. As we share feedback and best practices we each get better and faster at our trade allowing us to meet the raising expectation our organizations place on finance and accounting professionals.
