CargoWise Sees Strong Growth in 2012
Global Client Base Increases Ahead of Expectations.
CargoWise, a global leader in logistics technology solutions, reports a significant uptick in new customers - well ahead of expectations. Despite the persistent uncertainty reported across global markets, CargoWise continues to exceed growth expectations. Greater license portability and reduced complexity through SaaS based and cloud hosted on demand systems, along with improved on premise systems implementations, have significantly reduced the sales cycle. CargoWise continues to see an increase in its pipeline and high sales success rates supporting higher than expected growth.
CargoWise founder and Chief Executive Officer Richard White said: “Unlike other global suppliers in our space, who have publically reported very slow growth or serious revenue decline, our growth in revenue and installed product base is setting a blinding pace. All our key financial and operational metrics are very strong. We are tracking well above 40% growth rate globally this financial year with even higher rates in the US and Europe. We are on target to deliver the best results ever.”
CargoWise’s recurring revenues now constitute 82% of total revenues, up from 72% in 2010. Confidence in CargoWise products is further supported by 99% annual customer retention with no loss of large customers in many years.
White added: “We plan to reinvest our success premium and focus hard on product capability. With more than 80,000 licenses across 4,000 sites in 75 countries, we are making huge inroads into global product compliance. We have a well funded high energy program to extend our development lead into all major languages, Customs Clearance requirements and Tax and Reporting needs globally.
