Host Analytics Delivers Record Sales in Third Quarter

Cloud-Based Enterprise Performance Management Leader Thrives as Billion-Dollar Corporations Leave On-Premises EPM Behind

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 22, 2013) - Host Analytics, the leader in cloud-based enterprise performance management (EPM), today announced record sales in its most recently-closed third quarter. The company's breakout results were fueled by accelerating adoption of cloud-based solutions in Finance, and a continued trend of larger companies migrating away from legacy on-premises EPM applications to the Cloud with Host Analytics.

The company won a number of large enterprises and industry leaders during the third quarter including Applied Industrial Technologies, Atlantic Power, Aspen Dental Management, Duchossois, Lehigh Gas, Sharp Electronics, Vitamin Shoppe, and many more. Large organizations turned to Host Analytics to replace legacy on-premises solutions from IBM, Oracle-Hyperion, and SAP that can't match the improved business agility, enhanced security, and lower overall costs of Host Analytics' cloud-based delivery model.

The company also remained the leading cloud-based EPM solution for high-growth emerging companies. New customers like Love Culture, MongoDB, Thrillist, and Tremor Video chose Host Analytics to streamline key financial processes and to escape the inefficiency and insecurity of Excel-based approaches. Beyond that, Host Analytics won replacements of lower-end cloud-based EPM applications at GoPro, Physio-Control, and Evernote, as they outgrew the functional and scalability limitations of less robust offerings. Those companies join the list of organizations like Crabtree & Evelyn who turned to Host Analytics after struggling to achieve success with other cloud-based alternatives.

During the third quarter, Host Analytics also announced the appointment of Ian Halifax as the company's Chief Financial Officer. Ian brings over 25 years of finance and operational experience at public and private high-growth technology companies, consistently helping companies achieve scale, market leadership, and profitability.
