Demand for Digital Employee Experience Skyrockets, Market Leader Nexthink Sees Record-Breaking Growth

BOSTON & LAUSANNE, Switzerland--()--Nexthink, the leader in Digital Employee Experience (DEX) management software, today announced that the company smashed growth projections in 2021. The shift to remote and hybrid work environments coupled with trends such as The Great Resignation has triggered a change in the way organizations think about employee satisfaction, sentiment and productivity. With this change of mindset comes a need to better understand digital employee experience at the device and application level, including increased demand for tools that allow for better visibility across work-from-anywhere environments. This upswing in momentum demonstrates the value of Nexthink’s offerings, as the company continues to consistently outperform itself and rapidly expand market share.

“Hybrid work, SaaS applications adoption and cloud computing are creating a new reality for IT teams,” said Pedro Bados, CEO and co-founder of Nexthink. “Traditional infrastructure monitoring and application monitoring are no longer enough. IT teams need to understand what employees are facing across any application or service whether they are working at home, in the office or in between. The growth that we are currently experiencing demonstrates the unprecedented demand for these types of insights, which will remain a crucial component for business success moving forward.”

Highlights of 2021 include:

  • Strong Business Growth. Growing year over year ARR (annual recurring revenue) by 42% globally, with over 66% ARR growth in North America, reaching the milestone of 15M endpoints. Nexthink’s net expansion has reached 124% and is achieving a high renewal rate of 98.4%.
