Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SECAUCUS, N.J. - Aug 14, 2017 - The total turnover achieved by the Retarus Group rose to $49.9 million for the fiscal year (FY) 2017, which concluded on May 31, 2017.* The company grew its Messaging Services business by 16.7 percent in comparison with the previous year. The positive performance of the business is in part due to continued strong adoption of Retarus’ cloud fax services in the Enterprise space, and the ongoing success of the partner community. The successful business with large corporations and the consistent expansion of the company’s international business units were also strong drivers for growth.
In the U.S., turnover rose by 43.5 percent compared to the previous business year. This strong growth played a significant part in necessitating the expansion of the Secaucus, New Jersey, and Boston offices as well as the opening of a new site in Atlanta, Georgia. During the coming fiscal year, a new data center is planned to be brought into operation in Secaucus, New Jersey to accommodate business growth and deliver on increasing customer expectations. The new facility has been built locally using top-notch infrastructure to provide improved stability to the customers and ensure faster reaction time for service. In the APAC region, the group has continued to strengthen its position on the market. The acquisition of several flagship customers boosted turnover for FY 2017 by 69.2 percent in the region. In Europe, Retarus built on the successes of previous years by growing its business with large corporations and significantly developing its relationship with existing customers. This enabled the company to achieve an above-average increase of ten percent in turnover. On the contrary, according to a study by the European IT Observatory (EITO), turnover in the global ITC sector rose by only 2.1 percent.
Increased security requirements and digital transformation drive growth
These positive business results underline the success of the Retarus team and the trust that our customers have shown in us. Over the past fiscal year, we have intensified our impact on the global market through our innovative capabilities.
Over the past fiscal year, Retarus continued to strengthen its position as a leader in the Enterprise cloud fax space.
