SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Planisware today announced strong results for 2020, continuing an eight-year growth streak, achieving revenue of $105 million, with North America registering 33% growth. This outstanding result came from multiple new lighthouse accounts, including Archer-Daniels-Midland, McKinstry, Kabam and Lear, coupled with significant expansion among existing accounts, including Pfizer and Lilly, and industry-leading retention among all customers.
“At Planisware we're honored to work with innovative companies all over the world, transforming the way business gets done,” commented Antoine Villata, CEO of Planisware North America. “Our rapidly growing customer base sees that Planisware’s cloud-based software is vital to scaling and accelerating their business. And they appreciate our Planiswarians’ commitment to their success. These factors underlie our strong business performance in 2020, despite the year’s unprecedented challenges.”
Planisware is the leading global provider of Strategic Portfolio Management (SPM) solutions, offering two cloud-based SPM platforms for engineering, IT, and new product development (NPD) organizations.
“Companies need SPM products more than ever in difficult times, for agile planning and control,” said Pierre Demonsant, Planisware co-founder and CEO. “I’m thrilled at what we help customers do! With our products, Enterprise and Orchestra, our users succeed at digital business transformation, product and process innovation, and major engineering programs. Both of our products provide Project Portfolio Management, Strategy and Financial Planning, plus Engineering, Application and Product Management -- all in systems integrated seamlessly from the ground up, not kludged together.”
