Apriso, a leading provider of manufacturing software solutions, today announced record revenue for the first quarter, the largest quarter in company history. Asia Pacific expansion led the company, with revenue increasing by 34 percent on a year-over-year basis, also a record revenue quarter for the region. Software license and professional services activity was focused within the Aerospace, Automotive, Consumer Goods, High Tech and Industrial Equipment industries
“Our growth and success in the quarter validates our global manufacturing platform business model,” stated Jim Henderson, president and CEO of Apriso. “Apriso uniquely positions MES as an enterprise-level application to be deployed to every plant, as part of a wider solution for manufacturing operations management. For the first time ever, each of our new customers this quarter made an enterprise decision to standardize on Apriso up front. We also saw significant revenues from our customers’ continued global roll-outs. Our selection as a Top Logistics Provider in 2012 further validates our platform message, acknowledging the value we provide our customers beyond manufacturing execution systems alone.”
During the first quarter of 2012, a total of nine sites went live. New customers that chose Apriso as their enterprise standard for manufacturing operations management included:
• The world's largest supplier of commercial airplane assemblies and components, including fuselages, under-wing components, composites, wings, spares and repairs;
• A major consumer packaged goods manufacturer, with operations spanning across India, and;
• One of the world’s largest high tech companies now focused on increasing their manufacturing operations.
Earlier in the Quarter, Apriso announced the addition of Alps Electronic Co. and Faltec as new customers, each now with live implementations at multiple sites. Apriso’s continued market expansion across Asia and strong results in the first quarter points to the company’s ability to replicate its enterprise business model and sales success already achieved in the Americas and Europe to Asia, an important growth and annuity market opportunity for Apriso.
Launched in late 2011, Apriso’s Manufacturing Process Intelligence solution is now being implemented by Tesla Motors as a manufacturing intelligence and analytics solution to complement their existing FlexNet Manufacturing Execution System (MES). On March 13, Apriso announced availability of a new mobile FlexNet application for Android users, to join the already released iPad and iPhone applications. Android-based tablets and phones, including products made by Motorola, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba now have access to Apriso’s complete suite of core FlexNet applications, including Production, Warehouse, Quality, Maintenance and Time & Labor.
