OIKOS keeps head in the cloud, eye on the future

MANCHESTER — In the fast-shifting market of financial reporting, Janice Leahy of OIKOS Software aims to enhance company planning and reporting structures via more innovative, analytical cloud-based solutions.

The software applications offer flexibility and data for mid-size and large companies in finance, tax, and accounting disciplines, she said.

And whether a firm is analyzing month-end, or year-end finances, accuracy remains the key. "You have to safeguard your assets," said Leahy, founder and chief executive officer of OIKOS Software.
OIKOS Software, incorporated in New Hampshire in April 2013 and based out of the abi on Elm Street in Manchester, spun out of Leahy's professional services company, L&V Partners. OIKOS now has a small team of professionals in Manchester who are planning to roll out some new applications in 2014.
Leahy recently announced the appointment of former Massachusetts Treasurer Shannon O'Brien, principal of the O'Brien Group and co-founder and president of Caelum Networks, to OIKOS' board of directors.
The two share an appreciation of the historical arc of financial reporting, and gladly bid adieu to static modeling and spreadsheets as the industry workhorse.

Citing her experience as a former state treasurer, O'Brien says businesses demand good, accurate numbers.
The OIKOS software allows for more immediate data enhancement, she said. "These applications take the guesswork — and the errors — out," she said.

OIKOS has platforms for tax tracking and measurement, for cash conversion cycle applications — with calculation and automation — and forecast and planning applications. The software is for U.S. and international companies.
Leahy knows New Hampshire well; she is a former executive director of the board at the New Hampshire International Trade Association. She also sees growth in New Hampshire's tech eco-system.

"The talent is here," she says. "It's just retaining and keeping them here."
