aPriori - aPriori Completes Most Successful Quarter in Company History
2011 MAR 17 - (VerticalNews.com) -- Our customer base increased by more than 21%,
And, we secured several large, multi-year subscription renewal and expansion contracts." New Customer Growth "The strong growth in new customers is very satisfying" explained Feraday. "Each of the new customers signed in Q3 represents penetration or early stage growth in new industry verticals outside our traditional agriculture and construction equipment stronghold. BISSELL for example, is one of the world's top manufacturers of household vacuum cleaners. Nearly everything they sell is made up entirely of plastic. This is a great new customer for us, and validates our ability to generate accurate costs for products made using plastic molding manufacturing processes." Customer Expansion "We are also quite pleased with the multi-year renewal and expansion contracts, with Polaris being the most notable," added Dick Underwood, Vice President of Sales for aPriori. "When a customer initially buys your product, they test it on a variety of projects over an extended period of time, using personnel with different levels of cost knowledge. If they then come back and want to dramatically expand the number of users, and extend the contract for 3 to 4 years, that is concrete evidence that the product delivers as promised, and is driving great ROI for that customer." Enterprise Cost Management Platform versus Point Solution "One of the reasons for aPriori's recent success has been our enterprise platform approach", said Underwood. "As aPriori has dramatically accelerated the expansion of its product line, it has truly become an enterprise class product cost management platform that spans multiple departments and use cases. Unlike other commercial software applications that are designed only for use by professional cost estimators, aPriori can be used across the entire product innovation, detail design, sourcing and manufacturing spectrum (Refer to Figure at Left, aPriori Use Cases Supported Today) ...read more
