FOSTER CITY, Calif., Jan. 28, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —   Arena Solutions, the pioneer of cloud-based product lifecycle management (PLM) applications, today announced strong year-over-year growth from Q4 2013 to Q4 2014, with subscriptions increasing by 38%, capping off another record year for the company.

For the entire fiscal year 2014, new customer subscriptions grew by 76% year over year.

Arena's continued investment in the expansion of its product offering, especially over the past 18 months, helped drive this increase, with new deal size growing to record levels and a net retention rate for FY 2014 of 112 percent (net retention rate reflects annual customer renewals, less cancellations, plus expansion). A sampling of Arena's new products over the last 18 months includes:

  • Arena DataExtract: Enables customers to extract all process data to a standard, flat file format, which can be analyzed downstream using a variety of customer analytic tools, from relatively simple spreadsheet applications to highly sophisticated business intelligence and analytics platforms;
  • Arena Scribe: Provides customers an easy-to-use collaboration platform that delivers a real-time commenting page available on any Arena Item, Change, Request, Supplier, Supplier Item, File, Project or Quality process, all presented in a familiar 'social' user experience;
  • Arena Quality: Enables all stakeholders, including the extended supply chain, to participate in the quality process, which is embedded in the PLM solution and is tied directly to the product record;
  • Arena Demand: Allows manufacturers to forecast visibility into their parts inventory and calculate aggregated component needs across their entire product portfolio, letting them better negotiate with their suppliers and contract manufacturers;
  • Arena Projects: Connects the project schedule directly to the product record to increase transparency and accountability for new product introductions, quality improvement processes and cost reduction projects;
  • Arena API: Expands the information value chain captured in Arena PLM by allowing customers to easily integrate their enterprise application infrastructure with Arena PLM; and
  • Arena Exchange: Offers OEMs a secure, flexible and traceable environment for collaboration with multiple users at different supplier levels throughout their global supply chain, with no incremental licensing or provisioning charges except for the original initiator.

"We've introduced powerful new features over the past 18 months.  Our record growth again confirms customer validation of Arena's expanding footprint which seamlessly integrates to enterprise business systems. Our PLM solution accelerates NPI by harnessing the collaborative efforts of internal teams and supply chains alike." said Craig Livingston, CEO of Arena. "Not too many years ago our high value feature-set resonated best with the SMB market.  Now that we're beyond feature-parity and still the most affordable, the global enterprise market is responding."

  • 3D Robotics is the premiere advanced drone, UAV, multicopter, autopilot and autonomous vehicle control company in the world.
  • Aerohive Networks provides a mobility platform that utilizes the cloud and a distributed, controller-less architecture to deliver unified, intelligent, simplified networks that can be cost-effectively deployed.
