Soonr Announces 112 Percent Growth in the European Region
Demand for Secure File Sharing and Collaboration Drives Record Q2 Results
CAMPBELL, Calif. – September 10, 2014 – Soonr, a leading provider of secure file sharing and collaboration services for business, today announced record results for Q2 2014, marking significant international growth. Revenues, specifically in the European region grew by 112% compared to the same period last year, also representing a 51% growth in the number of business accounts and reflecting continued expansion in Europe.
“The demand for secure file sharing and collaboration is rapidly growing throughout Europe as it becomes the new paradigm in business productivity,” said Ahmet Tuncay, CEO, Soonr. “Soonr is perfectly positioned to capitalize on this trend with one of the most secure, enterprise-class file sharing solutions on the market designed to support the growing collaboration needs of businesses around the world. Our continued growth in Europe underscores the value that our solution continues bring to customers.”
Having operated geo-redundant and local data centers in Europe since 2007, Soonr has long been a leading file sharing service provider for businesses in the region with a large and growing ecosystem of partners and distributors that deliver Soonr Workplace for its ease of use, rapid deployment, and security. Soonr’s European customers not only cover a wide range of countries, but can also be found in multiple industries and sizes. Two examples are Copenhagen-based LITEHAUZ, a leading environmental consultancy that specializes in the unique needs of the maritime industry, and Placera Personal, a Stockholm-based staffing firm.
“What has impressed me most about Soonr Workplace is the system’s availability and ease of use,” said Svend Boes Overgaard, senior environmental consultant, LITEHAUZ. “Soonr is very reliable. It’s consistently faster than email and much more secure. It delivers everything we needed in a file sharing solution – availability, security, control, stability and performance giving us greater productivity as a team and as a company. Plus, it gives me true peace of mind knowing that our data is secure and protected with the ability to recover it at any time.”
“We wanted a simple solution that could be hosted outside the organization,” said Pär Ola Wiberg, Vice CEO, Placera Personal. “We don’t have the time or staff to manage an internal server, so a cloud-based solution was clearly our best option. Some of us were familiar with Dropbox but also knew it had limitations in respect to security and control. What we needed was a simple yet feature-rich cloud-based file sharing solution for our company and Soonr Workplace Enterprise edition delivered. It’s user friendly and fits nicely into our overall business process.”
Embraced by users and endorsed by IT, more than 150,000 businesses trust Soonr for their secure file sharing and collaboration needs. Soonr Workplace empowers mobile teams and organizations to do business faster from any device anywhere.
