Delcam has set a new quarterly sales record in the first quarter of 2007 with total sales of £7.9 million.
This beat the previous quarterly record, set in the final quarter of 2006, by almost 8 per cent and showed an increase of over 15 per cent compared to sales in the first quarter last year. This latest achievement follows record annual sales by the company in 2006.
“The sales for the first quarter are in line with our budget. With the addition of the PartMaker and Crispin families of software to our product range during last year, it would have been disappointing if we had not shown significant growth over our 2006 first quarter," said managing director Hugh Humphreys. "More significant is the increase in sales compared to the final quarter of last year. Our final quarter is almost always the best for sales and the 2006 figures included PartMaker sales for the whole period and Crispin sales for part of the time.”
The record overall sales total showed particularly strong growth in the revenue from maintenance contracts. “We have continued to increase our investment in research and development to ensure that our software will provide even greater benefits to our customers,” explained Mr. Humphreys. “The increase in our revenues from maintenance confirms the high value that our customers place in our new software releases and in our support services.”
