Cerri.com Clocks Second Consecutive Year of Growth as Final 2011 Numbers Roll in

Demand for project and portfolio management solutions defies slow economy; 2012 outlook strong for SaaS, Asia-Pac growth

MONTRÉAL, CANADA AND GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – (February 8, 2012) – Defying a mediocre economy for the second year in a row, Genius Inside grew sales, revenue and its customer base when the final results from 2011 were tallied, the company announced today.

Demand for Cerri.com’s Genius Project project and portfolio management (PPM) solutions drove double-digit global revenue growth in 2011. North American revenue increased 95 percent. The company’s new client acquisitions have grown 30 percent year-over-year through 2011. Among the newest customers to choose Genius Project as their primary project management solution are international medical imaging software company Mach 7; Europe’s largest tool and machinery rental service, Loxam; Wash Tec Cleaning Technology GmbH, one of the world’s largest designers and manufacturers of cleaning equipment for car washes. Halfway through 2011, Cerri.com had already announced new customer relationships with McGill University in Montreal, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, and Utah grocery chain Harmon City Inc. in North America. New European customers include Sparda Bank Hamburg of Germany, software company SCIA of Belgium and BNP Parisbas bank of France.

Reflecting a growing industry trend, a significant portion of the growth came from Cerri.com’s software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering, Genius Project On-Demand. It attracted new customers and attention from existing clients who wanted to expand their PPM implementations. SaaS revenue from new customers increased 100 percent in 2011. Overall SaaS revenue, from new and existing clients, increased 75 percent.

In addition to customer and revenue growth, Cerri.com expanded its product portfolio in 2011 with Genius Project Enterprise, an on-premise edition that enables companies with strict security rules to keep their data on site while employing Cerri.com’s broad array of tools to manage products profitably and efficiently.

Looking into 2012, Cerri.com expects to double SaaS revenue; increase install and hosted on-premise income by about 25 percent; increase business revenue from Asia and add new hosting facilities in Singapore to better support that region.

“IDC estimates that the global market for PPM software is expected to reach $4.2 billion by 2013, and based on our experience in 2011 it looks like it’s well on track to reach that goal,” said Christophe Borlat, managing director, sales and marketing at Cerri.com. “Companies are using the economic situation as an impetus to look at their project management processes. Are they getting the creativity, efficiency and productivity they should be? They’re increasingly turning to solutions like Genius Project to ensure that they do.”

Cerri.com’s Genius Project family of project management software enables organizations to manage and prioritize product ideas; ensure that the best resources are working on the most promising projects; and facilitate on-time project delivery. Genius Project Enterprise, Genius Project Domino and Genius Project On-Demand support the complete lifecycle of new product development projects by supporting dispersed project teams through its powerful web-based capabilities, configurable dashboards and reports, and powerful workflow engine designed to map to an organization’s business structure.
