Sopheon Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions
In February 2021, Sopheon named Michael Bauer as the first Chief Product Officer. Due to his previous knowledge and expertise, Sopheon expects to develop more intuitive products, deliver more value to their customers, and allow them to scale the company more profitably and with less risk.
Sopheon entered 2020 with the introduction of new programs to assist clients in moving their data sensitive applications managed by Sopheon’s product, Accolade, to the cloud. Softeon introduced a SaaS First program to interest new clients to favor SaaS contracts over the traditional on-premise in perpetuity agreements. The market was very receptive to the offering, resulting in over half of net new clients in 2020 signing SaaS contracts. Softeon also introduced a SaaS Uplift program designed to assist active maintenance-paying clients to transition to the cloud. Softeon's offering reduces costs to the client by removing the need for them to manage Accolade software in their environment. It also enables faster access to new features and capabilities. Four clients converted to SaaS in 2020 as part of the introduction program, validating business case and ROI proposition.
Sopheon Risks and Challenges
Sopheon is a business in the transition from perpetual License and Initial Maintenance to SaaS business. This transformation affects every aspect of the company and all cross-functional operations.
Sopheon Ecosystem, Partners, Resellers and SI
