Network Automation, the market’s leading IT and business process automation software company, today reported financial results for 2013 and the final quarter of calendar year 2013 (Q2 of fiscal year 2014). Increasing demand for scalable automation solutions, combined with new pricing options and expanded global deployment, propelled record-breaking sales and revenue growth.
For 2013, the company achieved a 24% increase over the previous year’s sales, posting the best year in Network Automation history. Q4 grew 8% over the previous year’s results for that period to achieve the best quarter on record, while December 2013 saw increased sales of 21.5% over December 2012, achieving the best month to date. The company also signed numerous high-profile clients, including the LA Lakers, Bojangles Restaurants, The Sacramento Bee and many more.
“As cloud computing assets grow and businesses look for new ways to streamline IT processes and integrate numerous complex systems, automation is an increasingly important solution,” said Dustin Snell, founder and CEO of Network Automation. “With a no-code automation platform, our customers’ IT teams can focus on more strategic tasks, which helps their businesses succeed. Companies are realizing the value of automation, and we’re meeting growing demand with creative new approaches, which is why we’ve had such a strong year with record-breaking performance.”
Network Automation’s direct sales grew by 40%, which resulted in the 24% increase in company growth over 2012. By rolling out new pricing models like unlimited site licensing and special pricing for non-production and disaster recovery purposes, Network Automation has made larger deployments more affordable for organizations in a variety of industries, including MLB.com, Duke University Medical Center, US TRANSCOM and Reed Group.
New professional services such as Maintenance Plus, the Automate Health Check and Automate Migration Service have fostered closer collaboration between Network Automation’s direct sales force, the automation solutions engineering team and existing customers. By working more closely together, Network Automation professionals are able to identify new opportunities to streamline customer operations by applying automation solutions such as HR onboarding and application integration, significantly increasing customer ROI beyond standard back-office IT automation.
Network Automation’s channel sales division also achieved its most impressive performance to date. The company’s Pitney Bowes partnership is expanding worldwide, with installations accelerating in the Asia Pacific region. An expanded system integrators development strategy is also driving growth by producing unique solutions for call centers, improved health plans and integrated CRM solutions.
Network Automation introduced its first Automate product in 2004. Exciting new innovations are on tap for the coming months that will further streamline front-end workflows and deliver even more robust back-end capabilities to create a true business-IT partnership.
