Friday, May 21, 2010
Builds on trend defying figures for 2009 and shows unshakeable demand for production planning & scheduling technology

Preactor International, the world’s leading specialist planning and scheduling Software Company, today announced that Q1 figures for 2010 were 39% up over the same period for 2009. Even more impressive is that against the prevailing manufacturing IT market trend which saw sales slump in 2009, Preactor saw annual group revenues increase by 13% over 2008, itself a record year.

Preactor’s growth has been consistent across each quarter for an unbroken 37 quarters underlining the rock-solid appeal of Preactor’s production planning and scheduling technology. While the UK, USA and France have seen the strongest sales, many countries have shown encouraging growth which strengthens the view that manufacturers are seeing the light at the end of the recession tunnel. Preactor continues to be used across all vertical markets with Complex Machinery, Packaging, Pharmaceuticals, Metals and Food & Beverages showing the strongest interest so far in 2010.

Mike Novels, CEO of the Group, commented on the results. “Our figures speak for themselves and show that before, during and emerging from the credit crunch, companies have consistently recognised the proven benefits that Preactor delivers. This is because we have continually invested in our products, services and partners – even in 2009, the most challenging economic and business time for decades. The fact our market share has increased to where we now have over 3,000 companies in 67 countries trusting in Preactor means that manufacturers from small/medium size to global corporations can have complete trust that investing in Preactor is a wise decision, both for now and for the future.”
