Arena’s Brisk Growth Continues in Q3 2014 Enterprise Customer Deal Size Doubles
Subscriptions from New Customers Grew by 140 Percent YOY; New Products, Including Quality, Exchange, Demand, Projects and API, Drove Arena’s Expansion
Foster City, Calif., Oct 27 - Arena Solutions, the pioneer of cloud-based product lifecycle management (PLM) applications, today announced strong year-over-year growth in Q3 2014 over Q3 2013, especially in the enterprise segment, where average deal size more than doubled. Overall, subscriptions from new customers grew 140 percent in Q3 2014 over the same period last year.
Arena experienced an impressive 61 percent increase in net new subscriptions over that same period, the best in the company’s history. Net new subscriptions growth measures the total increase in all subscriptions – new customer subscriptions plus renewals and expansions – minus any cancellations. Once again, Arena’s exceptional growth was influenced by the rapid adoption of the new products Arena has released over the past year, including Quality, Exchange, Demand, API and Projects.
“The market is clearly embracing the broader PLM product footprint we’ve added to our solution over the past 12 months,” said Craig Livingston, CEO at Arena Solutions. “And we will continue to add new features that uniquely differentiate Arena in the PLM market, such as the release of Arena Scribe, a next generation collaboration platform that enables our customers to collaborate with their internal teams, external suppliers and partners on individual items within the product record — all with a familiar social look and feel. Today, customers expect much more from their PLM system than as a place for the BOM to live. It’s becoming the central hub for broad communications within the supply chain about the product record and is one of the reasons Arena customers consistently deliver their innovative products to market faster than their competitors.”
New customers added in Q3 2014 include:
- Advanced Oncotherapy, PLC is a developer and provider of the next generation of particle therapy systems that makes radiation less toxic for cancer patients.
