Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 17, 2010
TerraGo Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of geospatial collaboration software solutions, continued to achieve strong performance in 2010, including a record quarter for revenue in Q3. TerraGo’s year-to-date revenue at the end of Q3 grew by 80 percent over 2009 results. In addition, TerraGo continued to expand its customer base in its core U.S. government market as well as commercial and international markets. The quarter was also highlighted by significant milestones with TerraGo’s strategic partners, new product enhancements, and continued hiring of leading talent.
“TerraGo’s record performance to date in 2010 demonstrates the strong demand in both government and commercial markets for putting the power of geospatial intelligence into the hands of all users in the enterprise,” said Rick Cobb, president and CEO of TerraGo. “Government as well as leading commercial organizations have deepened their investments in TerraGo geospatial collaboration software and GeoPDF. We are seeing larger acquisitions, more innovative programs and pilots, and broader commitments to creating standard intelligence products that leverage GeoPDF. TerraGo’s momentum is strengthened by the steps that we’ve taken together with other leading software providers such as Adobe, BAE, Esri, Hitachi, and Intergraph to enhance our solutions and deliver deeper capabilities to our joint customers.”
In addition to record financial performance during Q3 2010, TerraGo made strong progress and growth in numerous other areas:
