MANCHESTER, NH -- (Marketwired) -- 05/02/13 -- Scribe Software, an established global provider of solutions that easily bring customer data anywhere it is needed, continues its dominant role in the customer data integration market with another milestone quarter. In Q1 of 2013, Scribe launched major innovations to its enterprise-grade cloud integration platform, and drove an 88 percent growth in partner sales and 150 percent growth in new customer accounts over 2012, and continued expanding its software and channel partner ecosystem. Serving more than 12,000 customers worldwide, Scribe also added 23 enterprise customers across the United States and EMEA reaching more than 22,000 new individual CRM/ERP seats. This was fueled by a 127 percent growth over 2012 in EMEA enterprise sales.
In Q1 of 2013, Scribe announced significant enhancements to its award-winning Scribe Online Platform, which provides a radically new way for Scribe's growing ecosystem of software provider and systems integrator partners to create complete, responsive and accessible cloud integration solutions for businesses of all sizes. Many of the leading Software as a Service (SaaS) application providers including Microsoft, Salesforce, ExactTarget, Xactly, Silverpop, Marketo, FinancialForce, etc. have formed strategic partnerships with Scribe to deliver the next-generation customer data platform to their customers.
"We have been very impressed with the ease of use, scalability and speed of the Scribe Online Platform. We are using it internally and are bringing to market packaged solutions for AX, CRM and MarketingPilot integration," noted Gary Peterson, SVP of Hitachi Solutions. "Scribe's new visual interface makes cloud and hybrid data integration between core business applications easily accessible and speeds the development of new integrations to drive business value faster."
"I was impressed by the way Scribe's offering makes data integration simpler for business while providing integration into applications for marketing, sales, customer services and accounting systems. Today, when organizations have systems dispersed across online environments that need data shared across applications or integrated into a unified environment for analytics, Scribe Online is a great step forward," noted Ventana Research CEO and Chief Research Officer Mark Smith in a recent article. "Having software that can align business and IT is essential, as less than a fifth (19%) work together well for the information needs of an organization, according to our information management research. Scribe can provide significant value here, empowering business to do its own integration in a secured and governed manner."
In Q1, Scribe announced key partnerships such as Datix and Marketo to give businesses integrated marketing solutions that connect critical customer data for better business outcomes -- continuing Scribe's focus on making customer data integration reliable and easy.
"Scribe's novel approach to cloud data connectivity will extend the value of the Marketo platform by allowing critical prospect data to be easily integrated with data from other core business systems. This will allow our joint customers to get to value faster and at a lower cost," said Mark Sheridan, Vice President, Business Development, Marketo.
Scribe also made new strategic partnerships with top ISVs, including Evergage, FieldOne, Intacct and Leaseworks, and continues to own the channel market for customer data integration with more than 1,000 global partners.
Recently named a CODiE Award finalist by the Software and Information Industry for best integration solution, Scribe continues to earn industry honors. However, its highest honor is driving customer accolades by making the traditionally time-intensive, complex process of data integration open, user-centric and available to key stakeholders.
In fact, over half of the Convergence 2013 Microsoft Customer Excellence Award winners (e.g., Driscoll Strawberry Associates, Inc., WeightWatchers International, U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs) use Scribe to ease their integration efforts, and 75 percent of the MS Dynamics partners (e.g., Edgewater Fullscope, Hitachi Solutions America, Ltd., Tribridge) servicing award winners use Scribe as their choice customer data integration solution.
"Illinois is the first state in the nation to have an online inmate management system hosted in the cloud. Scribe took us from the Stone Age to the Space Age by enabling us to migrate inmate data out of our legacy mainframe and into the cloud," said Steven Matthews, CIO of Illinois Dept. of Corrections.
"Scribe is revolutionizing data integration in today's cloud and IT consumerization era. We are committed to offering enterprises and government agencies the absolute simplest way to integrate customer data across business applications, regardless of where that data lives," added Scribe Software CEO Lou Guercia. "Appreciating the additional reach of our strategic partners, we will continue to work with them to provide flexible, scalable solutions that allow them to quickly drive business value for their customers."
