The New Year seems like a very long time ago, but I’d like to take a moment to share some of the highlights from 2014 with you.
The headline is that 2014 was an outstanding year for Kyriba. New bookings increased 47% over 2013. We added more than 170 corporate clients during the year, the most of any treasury management system vendor. New clients added during 2014 come from a wide variety of industries, and range from mid-sized brands to Fortune 2000 conglomerates. Some more notable client wins include corporations such as luxury goods designer, Coach, and Japanese imaging giant, Konica Minolta. We have almost 1,000 clients worldwide, and Kyriba is now accessed in over 100 countries across the globe. We also expanded our presence in Asia-Pacific, with the addition of a regional sales and support hub in Singapore, our eighth office worldwide, in January. It is no exaggeration to say that we are the global leader in treasury management systems.
This leadership is also reflected by influencers in the industry as well, and we also received a number of major accolades in 2014. For example, we were named by industry analyst IDC as the fastest-growing treasury management software vendor. Kyriba also received Global Finance magazine’s “World’s Best SaaS Treasury Management System” award for the second successive year, and was announced as NetSuite’s 2014 “SuiteCloud Enterprise Partner of the Year.”
In summary, 2014 saw Kyriba take huge steps as a company, from a sales, client service and partner perspective. We laid the foundation for another major year of growth. I’m excited about Kyriba’s direction and prospects and look forward to sharing more good news with you as the year progresses.
