We’re growing by leaps and bounds here at Accellion. We had a breakout 2010 and the momentum continues today. Since the beginning of the year we’ve barely had time to catch our breath. We just wrapped up our Q1 Customer Conference last week where we shared with our customers the new products and features coming out in 2011.
But I’m officially taking a few moments to celebrate our 1,000th customer win and to thank our loyal customers for their continued support.
I thought it would be fun to take a look at how we got to 1,000 enterprise customers and some of the milestones along the way:
Customer #1 –Ogilvy & Mather, one of the largest marketing communications companies in the world. They are still an Accellion customer after all these years. Now that’s some customer loyalty!
Customer #10 – NCI Information Systems, a leading information technology, systems engineering and integration company. Yup they‘re still an Accellion customer too.
Customer #25 – Procter & Gamble, a global company that provides consumer products in the areas of pharmaceuticals, cleaning supplies, personal care, and pet supplies. Yup, them too!
Customer #100 – AL Tayer Group, operates leading, quality-focused businesses in automobile sales and service, luxury and lifestyle retail, perfumes and cosmetics distribution, engineering as well as interiors contracting. Yes, you guessed right - still an Accellion customer!
Customer #500 – IBA Health, a health information technology company that engages in the development and licensing of computer software to the healthcare industry. Yes, right again. Still an Accellion customer!
Customer #1,000 – Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, is a not-for-profit center for engineering, research, and development. APL is a division of one of the world's premier research universities, The Johns Hopkins University (JHU). And one of our newer Accellion customers!
In case you had any doubt, virtually all our customers stay with Accellion year after year, which explains our renewal rate of 98%.
At Accellion we value our customers, which is reflected in the commitment we have to customer support, the quality of our solution and our desire to really solve our customers problems related to delivering secure file sharing to their organizations.
Enterprise organizations continue to choose Accellion for a few key reasons:
• We offer a true enterprise solution – designed to scale with business needs.
• We offer flexible deployment options - we understand that one-size does not fit all when it comes to enterprise deployments. Virtual, public, private and hybrid cloud are all options with Accellion.
• We believe strongly in delivering a solution that is easy to use for both IT and the end users.
So thank you again to all our customers and we are looking forward to our next customer milestone.
