2009 has seen a number of notable successes for Qube Global Software throughout the year, despite the difficult conditions in the worldwide economy.
Hosted by Qube Global Software, Open Doors, the UK’s only property and facilities management software exhibition, was again a great success. The 2009 event had more registrations and more attendees than ever before.
Qube Global Software continued to play a large part in supporting industry events throughout 2009, with sponsorship of Corenet, RealComm, The Property Awards and the ARMA Conference, along with a prominent attendance at many more industry events including MIPIM, HEFMA and The Facilities Show. 2010 will see Qube Global Software extend this series of partnerships with some exciting new ventures.
Notable sales successes were evident across all products. The Qube team was able to maintain sales volumes that were consistent with the excellent growth of the last five years, as rationalisation within the marketplace saw new streams of demand come to the fore.
The Planet product consolidated its dominance of the health industry, with a number of hospital trusts and other agencies becoming customers. 2009 also saw prestigious names such as Cambridge University and the historic Royal Palaces become Planet customers.
A major success was the selection of the Horizon product by Redevco, owners of one of the largest real estate portfolios in Europe. This, along with a number of major customers upgrading to the latest version and more new customers in the Middle East, created a portfolio of successes for the company.
The customer groups of the Qube and Horizon products came together for the first time in 2009. The Qube Global Software Customer Conference saw well over 200 clients from a range of organisations come together at Kings Place in London for demonstrations of the latest software releases, generic IT sessions and leading industry guest speakers. Along side this, Planet hosted their final individual customer conference at the famous Belfry hotel. 2010 will see all of Qube Global Software’s customers invited to a further enhanced customer event.
The overriding view from Qube Global Software was very much one of ‘why waste a good recession’ and, unlike other companies in the industry, Qube Global Software has actively diverted resources into development activities across all products.
John Cuppello, CEO of Qube Global Software commented: “2009 was a challenging, yet good year for Qube Global Software. The hard work and commitment of the whole team means that we are very well placed to take advantage of what will be an exciting 2010.”
