First things first, thank you to all of our incredible partners, customers and the Microsoft community as a whole. This year has been one for the books and we couldn’t have done it without you!
Taking a look back at 2018
We were able to realize some incredible achievements in 2018. Currently, we have 450 clients with 1.5 million users using Valo worldwide including 200 that signed-on to fall in love with their digital workplace this year alone! This means, nearly half of our clients came out of 2018! WOW! What a great year. With so many new clients, it was no surprise that we more than doubled our revenue.
Wrapping up the fiscal year
Here’s how we did in numbers in 2018:
- +63% growth in the global revenue
- 80 new partners (20 new partners in the US and Canada – now totaling 40)
- 200 new customers (36 new customers in US and Canada – now totalling 50)
Teamwork makes the dream work
We couldn’t have achieved these incredible numbers without our amazing partners that tirelessly service our clients around the world. We also had a lot of additional help this year thanks to 80 new partners that joined our growing partner network! Treating our partners as an extension of our team and showing them the same love is part of our winning formula. We were thrilled to discover that the formula was working when we scored a whopping Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 60!
A new journey across the Atlantic
At the beginning of 2018, we began our journey across the Atlantic ocean to set up a subsidiary in Montreal. Why? Because the overwhelming interest coming out of North America demanded that we get a little closer to the action. This allowed us to respond to the increasing demand for our solutions and enabled us to better serve our partners and customers in North America.
This year has been extremely important for the North American division. We strengthened bounds through team building, got our new home at the Nordelec building, in Montreal, and strengthened our friendships with our partners. In 2018, we went to 30 events in North America, from smaller SharePoint Saturdays to massive events like Ignite. We can now say that the whole community knows who Valo is.
But this is just the beginning of our story! We look forward to working with all of our great partners and customers in 2019!
