We could not have accomplished what we did in 2009 without our customers and the incredible people that work at Aquire. I personally want to thank each and everyone of them.
Irving, Texas (PRWEB) February 1, 2010
Aquire™, a global leader in workforce planning and analytics solutions, today announced the company had a record 4th quarter and record profits in 2009. During one of the most difficult economic times in the history of the country, Aquire paved its way to record breaking business performance and results. The company's proven strategy and innovative solutions helped deliver successful milestones not seen in its 15 year history.
In addition to strong revenue and profits in 2009, Aquire also added more blue chip companies to its list of customers. New customers added in Q4 alone include Ebay, Yahoo, BASF, Highmark, Henkel Group, Sunderland City Council, and more. Not only did Aquire add new customers, the company also saw a significant increase in business from existing customers that purchased additional solutions and services throughout the year.
"We could not be happier with the results we achieved in 2009," stated Tom McKeown, president of Aquire. "With the economy bottoming out at the beginning of the year we were concerned like everyone else. However, we knew if we stayed the course with our strategy we could break through and achieve our goals."
The company attributes its success to it's new go-to-market strategy, product line diversification, and strong customer loyalty. In 2009, the company continued to experience great success with its new OrgPublisher™ Modules - an innovative series of solutions that help companies improve succession planning, organizational modeling and workforce data integrity. In addition to new modules, the company announced the sneak preview of InSight™, Aquire's soon to be released workforce analytics solution.
