Kimble PSA is Number One for Momentum in 2019 - and Other Highlights of 2019
Kimble Scales Up Strongly, Doubling User Numbers
Boston December 5, 2019 – Kimble was judged number one independent Professional Services Automation software vendor on the G2 Momentum Grid through 2019, indicating the strength of its market position and its rapid growth trajectory. Kimble is now the largest EMEA-headquartered independent software vendor on the Salesforce platform.
Kimble was recognized as a leading vendor of Professional Services Automation in the Enterprise market. It became the only PSA vendor ranked as a leader in every market size by the independent review site, scoring highly for customer satisfaction, time to value and the quality of customer support.
The number of users of its Professional Services Automation solution has doubled since it secured investment last year from Silicon Valley-based Accel-KKR, with many of Kimble’s new customers being global organizations with many thousands of employees, including some of the world’s best-known consulting and technology organizations. It expanded its international presence, opening an office in Melbourne, Australia and increasing investment in Germany.
Stephen Kelly, the former CEO of the FTSE 100’s only technology companies, Sage and Micro Focus, joined the Kimble board as a Non-Executive Director, providing guidance to the board as Kimble continues to scale.
Kimble’s growth was covered by various news outlets. CEO Sean Hoban was interviewed by British newspaper the Daily Telegraph for an article entitled “How little-known British software business Kimble raised millions and conquered the US market”. In an interview in Enterprise Times, Kimble MD Sarah Edwards highlighted that Kimble is increasingly attracting larger organizations as customers.
Kimble continued to build recognition in the US, being mentioned on NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, in an item on Fox Sports, on CBS New York, and in a wide range of publications including Forbes, Entrepreneur magazine and TechRepublic. German speakers also read about Kimble in publications such as Marconomy and Capital.de.
Kimble CEO Sean Hoban said:
“We are building on the success we achieved last year in 2018 when we secured investment from Accel-KKR and opened several offices. This year saw Kimble consolidate its position as the thought and market leader in the PSA space. It will be exciting to continue to scale up strongly in 2020.”
