Increase in sales, expansion to China, software enhancements
Paragon announces the company has experienced strong growth in the first half of 2016. The company has seen increasing demand for its routing and scheduling solutions in the US, UK and internationally as transport operators look to reduce costs, improve service levels and boost operational performance. This has resulted in a 70 percent increase in the number of organizations that have purchased Paragon transport optimization software compared to the same period last year, with 50 percent of the sales revenue coming from new customers.
“The global marketplace remains hugely challenging, but at this time of economic uncertainty we are seeing the uptake in our products increase as businesses look to become more efficient and competitive,” explains William Salter, CEO of Paragon Software Systems. “Our customer-focused approach, combined with an expanding international footprint, means we are ideally-placed to deliver solutions to a growing number of domestic and multinational organizations worldwide.”
Earlier this year, Paragon set up a wholly-owned subsidiary in Shanghai to better take advantage of opportunities within China, meanwhile the company has boosted its presence in both the UK and United States with a number of new R&D, customer support and business development appointments.
2016 has already seen a number of portfolio enhancements. It has expanded its Paragon HDX solution with a number of last mile fulfillment modules which maximize the performance of omnichannel fulfillment operations. The PC*MILER interface has also been updated providing Paragon customers with industry standard mileages to help them comply with U.S. Department of Transportation (DoT) and General Services Administration (GSA) distances for approved freight rating and billing.
Paragon has won numerous prestigious awards in the first half of 2016, including:
- Inbound Logistics Top 100 Logistics IT Provider
- SDCE 100 Top Supply Chain
- Food Logistics Top Green Provider
“Paragon is the partner of choice for transport operations worldwide. Customers from leading logistics, distribution, retail and grocery businesses currently use 3,400 routing and scheduling systems installed in more than 1,100 client sites globally. We are committed to providing exceptional support, regularly going the extra mile, to deliver on our promise and help customers achieve measurable success,” says Salter.
