Highlights include revenue growth, new service offerings, and employee growth and satisfaction
DENVER, CO, September 10, 2020 – Spinnaker Support, the top-rated global provider of Oracle and SAP third-party support and managed services, and an emerging provider of Salesforce managed services, today announced first-half highlights for the period ending June 30, 2020. The company saw record growth in sales, revenue, new customers added, and customer retention. Notable achievements included the launch of new service offerings, significant progress regarding the IBM partnership, prestigious customer service awards, and important certifications.
“I am extremely proud of our advancement in 2020, which occurred despite unprecedented global economic turbulence,” said Matt Stava, CEO of Spinnaker Support. “The third-party Oracle and SAP support market appears to be entering the inflection point forecasted by leading industry analysts – who currently project market growth will triple by 2023. Software publishers are pushing their customers to abandon highly functional on-premise applications for unready cloud replacements. Instead, many organizations are turning to the support alternative we deliver, to retain and optimize what they have for as long as desired.”
“At the same time, we launched our SaaS service practice,” continues Mr. Stava. “The immediate availability of packaged Salesforce managed services fills a notable market gap. New customer projects are already underway and we are building a robust pipeline of prospects. I am excited about the talent we are attracting to address the massive potential of the Salesforce CRM market.”
