SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire -06/18/12)- ServiceSource® (SREV), the global leader in Service Revenue Management (SRM), today announced that it has helped customer, Good Technology, the leading provider of secure and managed enterprise mobility and collaboration tools for a range of mobile devices, increase its renewal of recurring service revenue, maintenance and support contracts to over 90 percent in the past year.
Good Technology provides enterprise-grade mobile security solutions to half of the Fortune 100 and to other enterprise customers -- in over 90 countries operating on over 200 different mobile carriers. The boom in mobile enterprise computing was spurred by the proliferation of mobile devices and explosive growth of 'bring your own device' (BYOD) environments and has accelerated the demand for Good Technology's award-winning solutions.
"Good Technology has seen business surge as a result of the growing use of the iPhone, Android, iPad and other smartphones in the enterprise. The increased demand for our mobile security solutions sharpened Good's focus on product innovation, pushing service contract renewals to the back burner," said Brian Carr, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales at Good Technology. "We needed a best-in-class partner that could collect and analyze customer data and, at the same time, renew the opportunities. We partnered with ServiceSource to better leverage customer intelligence, gain deeper insight into our installed base and increase recurring renewal rates of maintenance and support contracts."
Good Technology customers purchase support when they buy Good for Enterprise™, the company's secure mobile device management (MDM) solution and collaboration suite. Good's support services help ensure rapid answers to customers' product and service questions, as well as prompt delivery of product upgrades via access to Good's download site. The company's rapid growth was making it difficult to have visibility into the service renewal dates for service contracts that need to be renewed each year. Good Technology leveraged the ServiceSource service revenue management solution to both improve installed base intelligence and predictability for its surging maintenance service business, which helped increased customer-support visibility and overall revenue renewal.
ServiceSource helped Good better organize and maintain its installed base data. The ServiceSource Analytics Cloud® gave Good a real-time view of opportunities, pipeline, and renewal rates, as well as customer, asset and contract data. Extensive reporting capabilities provide unprecedented business intelligence, forecasting capability, and control over the service contract business.
"Good Technology is a world leader in mobile security and exactly the type of high-growth, tech-enabled company with whom we like to do business," said Mike Smerklo, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, ServiceSource. "The results achieved through this partnership are exciting and will enable Good to fund and fuel the next mobile security innovation."
