Time will tell if this is a turning point in the economic crisis for IT, but we're starting to see companies move beyond simple cost cutting to look at how they can be more effective and save money over the long term
Braintree, MA (PRWEB) July 28, 2009
Heroix, a leading provider of application performance and network monitoring software, today announced double-digit quarter-to-quarter growth in sales of its flagship Longitude software, bolstered by wins in healthcare organizations. License sales grew over 50%, new customer acquisitions rose by more than 25% over Q1 and average selling price increased. Customer retention remained strong at more than 90% through the first half of the year. Longitude helps IT organizations improve service levels and enhance business performance through reporting, alerting, automated correction, and SLA monitoring for applications, servers, IT infrastructure, networks, and SNMP devices.
"Time will tell if this is a turning point in the economic crisis for IT, but we're starting to see companies move beyond simple cost cutting to look at how they can be more effective and save money over the long term," said Heroix President Rick Lane. Longitude helps constrained IT departments do more with less by allowing them to reduce expenses without sacrificing service levels for mission critical applications. Pressures to increase efficiency are particularly strong in healthcare as providers seek ways to contain skyrocketing medical costs.
Also in Q2, Longitude was nominated for the 2009 Mass Technology Leadership Awards, which spotlight the companies, people, and technologies that exemplify the best and the brightest in the Massachusetts technology community, and MITX Technology Awards, recognizing innovative technology developed in New England. Key wins in healthcare complemented customer activity in law enforcement, IT services, and real estate.
