Ektron Continues Double-Digit Sales Growth Into Q1 2010

NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - April 22, 2010) -  Ektron Inc., a web content management, social software and marketing optimization solution provider, today announced that the company continues to build on its history of success with sales growth of over 39 percent for the first quarter of 2010. 

"As with our double-digit growth throughout 2009, our sales momentum during Q1 is further validation that the market agrees Ektron is the premier solution for Web success," notes Bill Rogers, Ektron's CEO and founder. "Ektron's value proposition is based on marketing optimization solutions to help businesses drive revenue growth; a Web and document content management platform to help the enterprise improve operational efficiencies and social software tools that all organizations can use to build and retain customer loyalty."

During Q1, Ektron launched its worldwide local user group tour for 2010, meetings that offer attendees a chance to share information and knowledge, network with other Ektron developers and meet with Ektron executives. The tour continues through April into May 2010 with venues including Singapore, Florida, Texas and London. More information on the Ektron local use group meetings can be found at http://usergroups.ektron.com/. The company also unveiled the Ektron Exchange, a "one-stop shop" for developers offering the latest Ektron news, best practices advice and community-developed code. The core of the Exchange, the Community Code area, provides pre-built user controls, widgets and more, much of it developed by the new Ektron Code Factory Group (CFG).

Companies that purchased the Ektron platform during the first quarter included Covidien, John Hancock and Kelly Services, a Fortune 500 company providing workforce solutions around the globe. 

"Our choice of the Ektron content management platform is a perfect match for Kelly Services' website needs," says David Fenech, vice president of interactive marketing and creative services.
