Continued industry recognition, including awards for Product of the Year, CRM Excellence and Labs Innovation from TMC.
AAA rating from Dun & Bradstreet - for the fourth consecutive year, Confirmit has achieved the highest possible credit score.
"This was another strong year for Confirmit with the addition of CustomerSat, expanding our global reach, and a record breaking quarter for revenue at the end of 2012,"said Henning Hansen, Confirmit President and CEO. "The combination of Confirmit and CustomerSat has been positively embraced by industry analysts, our clients and our employees and I am confident that our customers will continue to see the benefits of the merger in 2013."
