Flux Workload Automation Experiences Double-Digit Revenue Growth in First Quarter
Flux, a leading cross-platform workload automation and managed file transfer solution, today announced impressive momentum for the first quarter of 2012, building on the company's successful 2011. Flux transforms IT workload automation and managed file transfer by simplifying the management of complex business processes.
"First quarter ended with 15% sales growth and new customers from around the world. I think our increased marketing efforts are really telling the Flux story. More organizations are finding out what a great return on investment Flux can be," stated Dave Sims, Founder and CEO of Flux.
"We have 80% of the essential enterprise class workload automation features at 20% of the price of many other WLA solutions in the market. Companies of every size appreciate the features set and the simple licensing and pricing structures," continued Sims.
One area of growth for Flux is the media and entertainment (M&E) industry. Transferring, storing, and processing digital assets quickly are vital actions in this fast moving sector. Often, the automation of file transfers requires a central processing solution with access to multiple server endpoints. Flux Workload Automation solved this need for one European media giant by providing a dependable solution to handle business-critical photo file transfers. Flux serves media files to content server endpoints for automatic display to internet publications — without the need for any software installation at each endpoint.
Another Italian media company found Flux to be the perfect solution to faster processing for their video files. When Flux took over the automation, the boost in speed was evident immediately. "Our goal was to increase the file transfer speed for them. Often they are moving 10 GB files or better. Flux performs beautifully and has speeds substantially faster than the file transfer solution previously in place," stated Nick McDonald, Flux Technical Support Manager.
The workload automation solution is in its 12th year and still continues to pick up speed and grow across several industry sectors. Over 60% of Flux installations are in the financial sector. Flux has been rock-solid orchestrating mission critical financial data. With this kind of proven track record and affordability, Flux is poised for continued growth.
Flux has started the second quarter with more interest from the media and entertainment industry and is still running strong in the health, insurance, supply chain and public sectors as well.
