Ultriva Announces 2012 Company Results

Leader in Collaborative Supply Chain Solutions Achieves 240 Percent Growth in Profitability; Looks to Europe, Japan and Brazil to Expand Global Footprint

CUPERTINO, Calif., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ultriva, a leader in collaborative supply chain solutions, today announced year-end 2012 results which include customer and vertical milestones, product enhancements and strong overall company growth across all dimensions of its business.

In 2012, Ultriva experienced strong customer adoption including accelerated momentum in key vertical segments such as aerospace and defense, medical device and healthcare. Additionally, the company delivered a major upgrade to its product offering with a module that incorporates innovative social media concepts, an integrated 'Inventory Optimization Tool' and a 'Collaborative Request For Quotation' (RFQ).  These are targeted for manufacturers building complex products that require many components and a long lead time supply base.

New milestones achieved during the year include:

  • 240 percent growth in profitability
  • Ultriva is now installed at 175 customer plants
  • 24 percent increase in license revenue
  • Established a centralized support center to provide free technical and application support for Ultriva's customers
  • Established new partnerships including the Kaizen Institute, which has over 350 consultants worldwide promoting continuous improvement methodologies
  • 20 percent overall employee growth; much of the growth in the company's Sales and Engineering departments

"We are proud to be closing out another great year, highlighted by major customer wins in new verticals and strong profitability growth," said Narayan Laksham, CEO of Ultriva. "Our global customers select Ultriva to help them achieve maximum inventory velocity through demand-driven supply chains. 2013 will be the year that we emphasize expansion into Japan, Brazil and Europe to meet demand from existing and potential customers."

Current supply chain management systems often lack the tools necessary to quickly and cost effectively react to the constant stream of changes in customer demand, production schedules and supply deficiencies that are so common in today's global markets. Having to rely on different systems with multiple tools is often expensive, time-consuming and inefficient. Ultriva's technology supports true collaboration and execution between manufacturers and their supply chain partners to enable seamless performance and increased revenue.

Ultriva's cloud-based collaborative supply chain solutions solves challenges by creating a demand responsive network that extends from manufacturer's customers, through their plants and out to their supply chain partners. Global manufacturers using Ultriva benefit from more responsive and flexible supply networks and reduce inventory costs by an average of 35-40 percent per plant and improve customer delivery performance.
