BEAVERTON, OR--(Marketwired - Oct 24, 2013) - Act-On Software, a leading provider of cloud-based integrated marketing automation software, today announced its revenue growth figures and corporate highlights for Q3 2013, highlighting another quarter of strong growth. During the third quarter, Act-On's revenues were 194 percent of revenues during the same quarter last year. Usage of the Act-On marketing automation platform has increased 175 percent over the same quarter last year, and currently powers over a billion marketing touch points per month on behalf of its 1800+ customers. In order to keep up with this exploding adoption, the company's employee base continues to grow rapidly, and is 180 percent of what it was during the same quarter last year.
The marketing automation industry is seeing a 50 percent annual growth rate across the board, and an even higher growth rate in the small and mid-sized market segment. The adoption of Act-On cuts across all industry verticals, with no single industry accounting for more than 10 percent of Act-On's new Q3 customer wins. New customers include Swarovski, Planar, and hundreds of other companies.
"We are very pleased to be able to continue growing at this torrid pace," said Raghu Raghavan, founder and CEO of Act-On Software. "We have managed to sustain and build on the startup culture that drove our early growth."
Act-On Inbound Sees Strong Adoption
Act-On Inbound, the inbound marketing product that was released at the end of Q2, continues to see strong adoption by both new customers and the existing installed base, with several hundred customers today. As a result of Google's recent update to encrypt all keyword searches, Act-On Inbound has become even more important to the target market because of its ability to use keyword results from Google AdWords to optimize content for organic search.
