REDWOOD CITY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Citrine Informatics, the leading AI and smart data management software platform for materials and chemicals, announced a record quarter for new customers and renewals, new strategic partnerships, and the launch of an executive webinar series in the first quarter of 2021.
Citrine delivered a record Q1 in key company performance metrics including total bookings, orders, upsells & conversions. Total Q1 booking value was particularly strong, where performance exceeded Q4’s record bookings by over 100%.
The company’s strong results spanned all of its primary markets including the EU, North America, and Japan. Strong Q1 growth was bolstered by upsells and renewals from large customers across industry segments, including formulations, additive manufacturing, and specialty chemicals. Q1 total orders exceeded the previous record set in Q4 2020 by 50%.
“We’re excited to play a key role in the industry as both a software provider and a driving force for innovation,” said Greg Mulholland, Citrine’s CEO. “In addition to ongoing interest from new customers, the value our platform delivers in bringing the next generation of performant and sustainable materials to market was reflected in our strong upsell and renewal performance.”
Citrine partnered with multiple go-to-market, technology, and implementation partners on new Q1 deals. In February, it announced a strategic partnership with Siemens that integrates Siemens’ Opcenter Research Development & Laboratory management system and Simcenter product simulation software with the Citrine Platform. “Simplifying our customers’ ability to deploy materials informatics means playing a key role in fostering a digital ecosystem in the materials and chemicals industry.” said Mike Smocer, Citrine’s VP of Global Sales. ”We are seeing tangible results from our efforts to partner with leaders who can help our customers with adoption, change management, and technology integration.”
