Paragon Software Systems has experienced strong growth in the first half of 2016. The company has seen increasing demand for its routing and scheduling solutions both in the UK and internationally as transport operators look to reduce costs, improve service levels and boost operational performance. This has resulted in a 70 per cent increase in the number of organisations that have purchased Paragon software compared to the same period last year, with 50 per cent of the sales revenue coming from new customers.
“The global marketplace remains hugely challenging, but at this time of economic uncertainty we are seeing the uptake in our products increase as businesses look to become more efficient and competitive,” explains William Salter, Managing Director of Paragon Software Systems. “Our customer focused approach combined with an expanding international footprint means we are ideally-placed to deliver solutions to a growing number of domestic and multinational organisations worldwide.”
Earlier this year, Paragon set up a wholly owned subsidiary in Shanghai to better take advantage of opportunities within China, meanwhile the company has boosted its presence in both the UK and United States with a number of new R&D, customer support and business development appointments. Paragon is also using the Technology Centre, opened in 2015 at its head office in Dorking, to engage customers in the early stage of their decision making process with business modelling and demonstrations in a virtual transport office environment. This is enabling the Paragon team to share its expertise, helping existing users make best use of their routing and scheduling software and providing proof of concept to incoming customers.
“Paragon is the partner of choice for transport operations worldwide. Customers from leading logistics, distribution, retail and grocery businesses currently use 3,400 routing and scheduling systems installed in more than 1,100 client sites globally. We are committed to providing exceptional support, regularly going the extra mile, to deliver on our promise and help customers achieve measurable success,” says Salter.
