2012 Business Highlights
- Signed new customers across several industries in the fourth quarter, such as American Standard, Guardian Analytics, O'Reilly Automotive, Oman Air, Panduit, Stramit Building Products, and Volvo Group Trucks, among others.

- Filed six new patents, introduced Rebate Optimizer as a new product, and released new versions of our big data applications for pricing and sales effectiveness.
- Announced participation in Microsoft Dynamics ISV Partnership Program to provide Microsoft Dynamics CRM customers with actionable, real-time customer insights that can improve sales performance.
- Achieved new product certifications from SAP for integration of PROS solutions into SAP ERP and SAP CRM, providing the most complete and seamless integration experience in SAP. Approximately two-thirds of PROS new B2B customers signed in 2012 run SAP, and more than half of PROS B2B customers overall run SAP.
- Increased annual headcount by 31% to approximately 700 people, reflecting investments made across the company in support of our long-term growth.
Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Charles Murphy stated, “Our strong performance was directly attributable to the investments we have made to diversify our business, expand our go-to-market initiatives and increase awareness for our solutions, resulting in 22% revenue growth for the full year and very strong backlog entering 2013. We are confident in our ability to grow full year 2013 revenue approximately 22% to 23%. We plan to accelerate our investments in order to capture the significant opportunity we see in front of us and believe we can drive growth of 20% or greater for the next several years while delivering solid profitability.”
