Kimble Customers Named to the 12th Annual SPI Best-of-the-Best List

Professional services customers excel in profitability, revenue, and growth

BOSTON, Mass. (3-4-2019) — Today, Kimble Applications, the global leader in professional services automation (PSA) software, congratulates two customers who have ranked among the “Best-of-the-Best” best managed professional services businesses by an independent benchmarking report.

Tquila ANZ and Claremont are amid a select group of 18 named companies, out of a field of more than 600, who came out on the SPI Best-of-the-Best list for 2019. The group was judged in terms of profitability, revenue, and headcount growth.

Mark Vivian, CEO at Claremont said: “We are delighted that Claremont’s success has been recognized with inclusion in this year’s Best-of-the-Best global list of the best managed professional services organizations. The Kimble PSA tool is an essential ingredient to the operational success of the business, helping us to plan and effectively manage change in our business in response to changes in the marketplace.”

“Tquila ANZ is honored to be a Best-of-the-Best this year. I have used the PS benchmark as a guide to best practices in all of the PS and software companies I have managed since 2007,” said CEO Jo Masters.

Kimble co-founder and CMO Mark Robinson said: “We are all about customer success and are delighted to see our customers on this prestigious list. Many of the most dynamic and fastest-growing professional services organizations utilize Kimble PSA to fuel their business growth and improve performance.”

The report highlights the importance and growth of the services sector, which now makes up 80% of the U.S. economy. The 622 PS organizations who participated in the 2019 benchmark, who collectively generated over $57 billion in revenue in 2018, reported significantly higher year over year earnings. Their average net profits were the highest ever reported in this benchmark.

But there were significant differences between the best and worst performing organizations, with those on the Best-of-the-Best list performing impressively on a range of measures, from revenue growth to delivering projects on time.
