DALLAS, April 11, 2023 – o9 Solutions, a leading enterprise AI software platform provider for transforming planning and decision-making, today reported that its annual recurring revenue (ARR) added in Q1 2023 grew by 51% year-over-year. The growth during the quarter was attributed to new client additions and expansions at existing clients throughout the globe and across a variety of industries as companies increasingly realized the competitive advantage of adopting o9’s AI-powered Digital Brain platform for a range of high-value planning use cases.
During the quarter, o9 also implemented numerous go-lives at well-known brands across a variety of sectors, including softlines, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, consumer electronics, and more. o9’s clients, across a range of digital transformation scopes, benefited from significantly improved time to value by adopting its unique building-block approach to pre-packaged planning functionality and associated implementation workflows. o9 also benefited from enthusiastic adoption of its building-block approach by the system integrator partner ecosystem, adding further scale to digitizing client’s end-to-end planning and decision-making processes.
In late March 2023, o9 Solutions hosted its largest annual aim10x global virtual event. With 11,000-plus registrations, aim10x global is o9’s premier online event where supply chain, procurement, revenue management, IT, and sustainability leaders come together to gain best practices, insights, and inspiration from more than 60 thought leaders, change-makers, and executives who are shaping the future.
