Business Acceleration and Strong Customer Retention Pave the Way for Continued Success of Hubspan’s Cloud-based Business Integration Platform in 2012
SEATTLE – January 31, 2012 – Liaison Inc., the leading provider of cloud-based business integration solutions, today announced record growth across multiple areas of its business in 2011, citing nearly a 100 percent increase in channel-enabled sales and 41 percent growth in new customer acquisition. This momentum is the result of Hubspan’s growing and successful channel strategy, commitment to retaining customers, and business adoption of cloud-based solutions. Hubspan is the leading global provider of solutions that companies like Visa, Ariba, NetSuite and many others look to for secure, scalable and flexible integration of ERP applications and B2B business processes.
“Companies of all sizes are realizing the benefits of using the cloud for real time integration and automation of business processes throughout their customer and partner communities,” said Trisha Gross, President and CEO, Hubspan. “By combining the power of Hubspan’s cloud-based integration platform with the power of our partner’s cloud-based applications and services, we extend business processes in a whole new way across cloud communities.”
Automating key customer business processes in the areas of e-commerce and accounts payable automation were significant drivers of growth for Hubspan in 2011 and the company expects this to continue throughout 2012. Hubspan also saw an increase in demand for integration outside North America particularly in Europe and the Middle East. Hubspan’s 2011 record growth was achieved while maintaining the company’s long history of 98% customer retention.
Other major highlights from 2011 include:
- Product Innovation: Hubspan brought several new product innovations to market in 2011, including a platform update to its flagship solution, WebSpan Manager.
