Turning 'One Day' Into 'Day One'

For accounting firms committed to advisory services, Clockwork is the FP&A software that gets clients results in minutes because it’s built by professionals for professionals

founding Story

The moment a CFO decided to create a tool to replace himself.

People spend time together

Others jumped on the AI bandwagon — we built it

Every now and then, a game-changer struts into town and throws the rulebook out the window. For Fady Hawatmeh, Clockwork's founder, AI wasn't just the next big thing – it was THE thing.

Armed with the perfect algorithm, he saw a future where AI didn't just join the FP&A party; it became the life of it – for hustling entrepreneurs and sharp-witted CPAs everywhere.

Your old FP&A tool called — it wants its relevance back

While running an outsourced CFO firm, Fady had ample opportunity to crash-test the supposedly industry-leading FP&A tools on the market — but found them all lacking.

At Clockwork, we believe you shouldn’t need a PhD to use a platform, you shouldn’t have to pay for support, and implementation should take minutes, not weeks. AI had come too far for this to still be the reality for FP&A software.

Clockwork is born

Back in the day, we fantasized about a tool that was finally doing justice to the tech of the 21st century. But we weren’t going to sit around hoping someone else would make it for us.

So we set out to build the FP&A tool to end all others, combining cutting-edge AI with an interface so user-friendly even your grandma might give it a whirl. Here's to setting new standards and FP&A software so good you’ll think it’s magic. No fairy godmothers — Just cold, hard strategy.

Our values

At Clockwork, our values aren't just words on a page—they're the driving force behind every decision we make and the cornerstone of our unique culture.

Evolution
