ATLANTA, Feb. 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blue Ridge, provider of comprehensive, cloud-native supply chain planning solutions, announced today that the company completed a record FY 2018, achieving a 62% increase in bookings fueled by net new customer acquisition. Revenue growth for 2018 outpaced growth in the supply chain planning marketplace with a 43% increase in annual recurring revenue combined with world-class customer retention in excess of 98%.
“Our record financial results in 2018 are a continuation of our record-setting 2017,” said Jim Byrnes, CEO of Blue Ridge. “The release of our next-generation Integrated Business Planning (IBP) solution was enthusiastically received by the marketplace and continued to drive customer adoption of Blue Ridge. IBP helped separate Blue Ridge from the traditional, on-premises solution providers, as our solution is purpose-built for retail and wholesale distribution.”
Byrnes continued, “We continue to deliver a cloud-native, app-simplistic experience in a traditionally complex, on-premises environment. Blue Ridge is applying Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in practical and meaningful ways to ensure that it has real-world impact — all while being able to reap the rewards and time to value through the fastest on-boarding available in the supply chain planning marketplace.”
Highlights from the FY 2018 include:
Byrnes added, “We fully expect 2019 to follow the record-setting results from the two previous years. Blue Ridge continues to lead the supply chain planning industry, outpacing marketplace growth by a wide margin and doubling the industry standard for research and development initiatives. We are just getting started.”
