WorkForce Software Announces Strong First Quarter Performance

Company Experienced Robust Revenue Growth and Gained New Clients Throughout Q1 2012

LIVONIA, MI--(Marketwire - Apr 23, 2012) - WorkForce Software, the leading provider of workforce management solutions for organizations with complex labor policies and stringent compliance demands, today shared details of its results from the first quarter of 2012. Continuing the momentum of record-setting revenue growth throughout 2011, the company secured a number of new clients, experienced an increase in multi-product buyers, and saw a strong rise in revenue growth compared to the same quarter last year.

WorkForce Software saw a 50 percent increase in Q1 revenue and a 57 percent increase in bookings of its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) workforce management solution over the same period last year. Throughout the first quarter, WorkForce Software won contracts with numerous clients employing from 5,000 to 30,000 workers in a wide range of industries. New clients include:

  • A publicly traded global offshore oil and gas drilling contractor
  • A global specialty chemicals company
  • Major gas and electric utilities
  • Major Midwest-based K-12 school districts and community colleges
  • A provider of senior care facilities in 44 states
  • One of Canada's premier sports and entertainment companies

Further bolstering the company's strong growth, WorkForce Software continued to see new clients take a more comprehensive and strategic approach to workforce management. In addition to the widely used Time & Attendance solution, the majority of new clients have also selected additional capabilities, particularly Absence Compliance Tracker (ACT), WorkForce Software's leading absence management solution, and EmpCenter Analytics, to understand key labor and business metrics. Moreover, several of the company's longstanding clients have renewed and upgraded their contracts to include additional EmpCenter offerings in Q1.

"Based on our strong performance throughout 2011 and in the first quarter of this year, WorkForce Software is well positioned to accelerate planned enhancements to our industry-leading EmpCenter solutions while continuing to grow our client community," said Kevin Choksi, WorkForce Software CEO and co-founder.
