Crawford Technologies, a market leader in the output management, document archive and accessible document markets, saw revenues grow by 46% during 2011 despite a worldwide recession. With the company’s fiscal year ending September, 2011, there are no signs of slowdown as the company approaches the end of its first quarter of 2012.
“Incredibly, 2011 is the best financial year we’ve ever experienced having record growth at a time when so many companies around the world are struggling,” said Ernie Crawford, President of Crawford Technologies. “The credit goes entirely to our amazing team of talented, innovative and hardworking employees.”
Crawford Technologies has been listed by PROFIT Magazine as one of Canada’s fastest growing companies for the past two years.
In April, Xplor International recognized CrawfordTech’s with an honorable mention for Innovator of the Year Award for the PRO Production Manager product. PRO Production Manager offers customers an affordable automated document factory system and the success of this product accounted for a significant portion of CrawfordTech’s 2011 growth.
In 2011 CrawfordTech opened its fourth office in Fort Collins, Colorado to support its new Archive Management Solutions (AMS) division. This division focuses on software for archiving computer reports and transactional documents in Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems such as EMC’s Documentum product. This division immediately showed profit and contributed significantly to the company’s growth in 2011.
CrawfordTech formed its Competitive Upgrade Team in 2011 to help transition 1,400 customers from competitive software to the more flexible and capable CrawfordTech solutions. This initiative will triple CrawfordTech’s customer base by the end of 2012.
