FOSTER CITY, Calif., May 2, 2017 /CNW/ -- Arena Solutions, pioneer of a cloud-based, all-in-one product development platform that unites PLM (product lifecycle management), ALM (application lifecycle management), supply chain collaboration and QMS (quality management systems), today announced that Q1 2017 was another record quarter for the company, driven by continued strong growth in both new customer acquisitions and current customer expansion.
New customer subscription value grew by 86 percent in Q1 2017 over the same period in 2016, while also besting the prior Q4 2016 record. The company additionally gained a record number of new customers — 59 percent more than it gained a year ago, with particular strength in winning larger enterprise customers. Total bookings grew 30 percent year over year, and the company's net new annuity for the quarter grew by 134 percent, an enormous testament to the rapid adoption Arena is experiencing in the marketplace.
Leading innovative industries such as high tech, medical device and consumer electronics – including 250 customers in the nascent IoT space – rely on Arena's cloud-based solution to organize the work of electrical, mechanical, firmware and software engineers. They do so not only because it's powerful, affordable, simple to deploy and easy to use, but also because it provides a unified product development platform. As a result, Arena customers get unparalleled visibility both upstream and downstream across all cross-functional stakeholders for regulatory compliance, and exacting quality precision while reducing time-to-market.
