    Lockstep works by integrating with cloud and on-premise enterprise resource planning and accounting solutions, and provides services to help accounting teams work together. The software is designed to remove the need for email, portals and paper between accounts receivable and accounts payable functions. The Seattle-based startup most recently brought on an executive vice president of customer success, an executive vice president of marketing, and a vice president of finance to help reach this goal.
