Fast growing VAR and consultancy Optevia is celebrating a record 70 per cent revenue growth for its financial year 2011/2012.
The privately-held public sector specialist has secured a strong business pipeline in its six core sectors: central government, local government, healthcare, fire and rescue, social housing and public transport and it claims its strong financial performance is a clear indicator of its ability to reduce customer costs, improve processes and provide quality customer service using Microsoft Dynamics CRM software.
Although figures are not available, the firm claims its profits are on a similar trajectory to its revenues.
Over the past year, Optevia also introduced a profit share scheme as part of a drive to attract and retain quality staff to ensure continued focus and growth.
Tim Vernon, managing director of Optevia said: “Firstly, thank you to all our committed staff and loyal customers for helping us achieve this significant growth. It is an outstanding achievement and we will continue to invest in the business to further grow our position and capitalise on this market opportunity. Additionally, we have started this latest financial year strongly and have already exceeded last year’s same quarter by 50 per cent.
“Microsoft Dynamics CRM is now a mature offering for the public sector,” he added. “The sector has been, and continues to be, under extreme pressure to do more with less, and this is exactly what Dynamics CRM plays strongly to – ensuring full and efficient use of our customers’ most expensive resource: people."
