Palo Alto, Calif. (PRWEB) August 1, 2007
Vendavo®, the leading provider of business-to-business pricing and optimization software, today announced record results for the first half of 2007. Coming off strong results in 2006, Vendavo continued its aggressive growth and more than doubled bookings during the first half of 2007 compared to the same period last year.
Vendavo's success was driven by strong momentum in the company's reseller partnership with SAP AG. SAP, the world's leading provider of business software, resells the Vendavo Enterprise Pricing Suite as the SAP Price and Margin Management by Vendavo. Other key factors contributing to Vendavo's success include strong adoption of its segmentation, price setting and optimization capabilities, and rapid acceleration in deployments at multiple divisions across its global customer base.
"I am excited that our partnership with SAP is delivering outstanding results. SAP customers appreciate how SAP Price and Margin Management can drive margins for their business," said Jamie Rapperport, co-founder and executive vice president, Marketing and Business Development for Vendavo. "An enterprise-class pricing solution that is tightly integrated with other SAP applications, combined with superior support and the security of purchasing from a global leader, has proven to be very compelling for SAP customers."
"Rapid adoption of SAP Price and Margin Management by a large number of leading companies across industries is a strong testament to the business value the solution delivers," said Rami Branitzky, senior vice president, Global Software Solution Partner Program at SAP. "Our relationship with Vendavo is a prime example of our partner ecosystem in action. Through the co-innovation and the strong momentum in the SAP ecosystem, we are able to deliver greater value to our customers, such as SAP Price and Margin Management, that complements and extends SAP CRM."
During the first half of 2007, the number of Vendavo customer deployments grew significantly. The company's enterprise-class solution is now deployed or in deployment in more than 120 divisions at over 35 multi-billion dollar companies around the world. Vendavo Enterprise Pricing Suite collectively prices revenues in excess of $500 billion and manages tens of millions of price points.
"We are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead," said Al Crites, chief executive officer of Vendavo. "Price and margin management is getting greater attention at the highest executive levels in business-to-business companies. We are aggressively growing the company to meet increased demand for our solutions. We have a proven enterprise-class solution, deep pricing domain expertise, and strong partnerships to help our customers drive dramatic improvements in their profitability."
