Long Beach, CA, United States, 2010/08/04 - Revenue increases 42 percent on quarter-over-quarter and 32 percent year-over-year basis, driven by strong software license revenue growth and new customer acquisitions. Euronext: #13065; DSY.PA
Apriso®, a leading provider of manufacturing software solutions to achieve and sustain operational excellence, today announced revenue growth has accelerated in the second quarter of 2010. Total revenue grew 42 percent on a quarter-over-quarter basis and 32 percent year-over-year basis. Software license revenue more than doubled on a year-over-year basis; growth was driven by existing customers expanding their FlexNet® solutions and by four new customers selecting Apriso as their provider for enterprise manufacturing operations management.
“The growth of our software license revenue is indicative of the substantial value Apriso is delivering global manufacturers as they look for scalable enterprise solutions to drive continuous improvement, realize higher quality, while reducing their IT and manufacturing costs,” stated Jim Henderson, president and CEO of Apriso. “Along with adding to new customers and markets, our existing customers continue to expand their Apriso footprints, contributing to our expansion in 2010 and their improved manufacturing operational excellence.”
A total 23 customer sites have gone live in the first half of 2010 with new FlexNet® applications, reflecting Apriso’s continued global expansion, with live sites now in Lithuania and Romania. Cleantech continues to be a strong focus in the second quarter, with the announcement that Boston Power selected Apriso's FlexNet as their enterprise Manufacturing Execution System. In addition, a high profile electric car manufacturer selected Apriso as their foundation for manufacturing operations management. During the quarter, software and services were implemented at manufacturers in the consumer goods, packaging, aerospace &defense, life sciences and industrial equipment industries.
In June, Apriso announced availability of FlexNet 9.5, one of the company’s most extensive software upgrades ever completed.
