Arena Posts Another Record Quarter for Bookings & Average Deal Size in Q4 2015
Q4 2015 Marks Arena’s Best Ever Bookings; Nearly 30 Percent Larger than Q4 2014’s Record; Average Deal Size Increases 22 Percent
Foster City, Calif., Jan 19 - Arena Solutions, the pioneer of cloud-based product lifecycle management (PLM) applications, today announced highlights from Q4 2015, which proved to be a record quarter for the company. Arena recorded the highest bookings and the largest average deal size in the company’s 16-year history. Q4 2015 bookings increased by nearly 30 percent over Q4 2014 (a record high at that time), while average deal size grew 22 percent over the same period.
These strong results were driven primarily by closing larger enterprise deals, an accomplishment driven in large part by the release of Arena Analytics in September, which was the latest new module in a series of enterprise-focused releases that include Scribe, Quality, Demand, Projects, API and Exchange.
Next month, Arena will continue to accelerate product innovation with the Winter 2016 release of Arena PLM. "For 2016, Arena will continue to invest in new products, key enhancements, performance and scalability," said Steve Chalgren EVP Product Management. “This upcoming release will have significant improvements around search, access security, and a new capability around supplier quality management processes. Future releases will include additional key enhancements and new products that connect more of our customer’s R&D and Operations people to the product delivery process.”
Additional highlights from Q4 2015 include:
- New customer subscriptions: 17 percent increase over previous best quarter;
- Arena Professional Services: Record quarterly bookings for services due to larger enterprise customers.
According to Stan Przybylinski, vice president of research at CIMdata, the leading independent global research firm focused exclusively on the PLM market, “Based on our early estimates, Arena is a clear market share leader in the cloud PLM market. Arena blazed the trail in this market segment, and it has positioned them well to take advantage of growing interest in cloud-based PLM.”
