- Reached a milestone of more than 49,000 users and improved revenue growth more than 30 percent over its previous year.
- Thanks to new developer tools, added integrations with third-party suppliers to give users more options for financial management, backup/recovery, voice over IP (VoIP), remote monitoring and management (RMM), and more.
- Added more mobile and web-based tools for iPhone, Android and Windows Mobile phones.
- Hosting its sixth annual IT Nation summit, attended by a record number of attendees (more than 1,400)
- Earning multiple business and technology awards including best software, best vendor, best place to work, partner growth, and industry-wide recognition of influential team members.
