CriticalRiver Inc. (“Company”) is a software development and technology solutions company based in Silicon Valley, California. The Company was started in 2014 with a singular focus on developing enterprise software solutions that manage pricing, incentive, rebate, royalty and channel programs to enhance business performance while reducing labor and infrastructure costs. As business becomes increasingly global and interconnected, companies are challenged with executing go-to-market programs that drive customer traction and revenue while controlling costs and minimizing revenue leakage. Our end to end solutions are designed to address these key issues while empowering enterprises with unprecedented visibility into go-to-market program performance and deeper insights to better enable fact based decisions.


The Company’s founders have deep expertise and a differentiated capability in developing this innovative solution based on their prior consulting experience implementing custom solutions that address similar issues at different organizations. The founding team is comprised of senior leaders who have spent several years at Oracle Technologies, a leading public software company in Silicon Valley, developing key enterprise software solutions.


At CriticalRiver, our success is governed by our client’s experience with us. When we take you on as a client, you become a full-time job for our team members on the account. It is because of our limited size that we are able to take the time to listen to your needs and craft out-of-the-box solutions that provide you with exactly what you need.
