BWise continues to set industry standards of excellence for GRC in a wide range of sectors worldwide including financial, energy, semi-conductor and government. Continued market growth and development position BWise for a record year in 2007 and beyond. BWise reports significant wins in the United States with exceptional growth percentages for that market. Further wins include renowned customers in the Nordic region, the Benelux, France, Germany, Switzerland and China.
“At BWise, we shape our success by that of our customers,” stated Robert Pijselman, CEO of BWise. “A look at the Web TV series on our site, for example, gives a glimpse into the benefits that our solution has delivered through our market-collaborative approach to GRC. We are enormously pleased with our continued expansion and increasing market adoption that validates our ability to deliver results. In particular, multiple strategic deals in the U.S. GRC market have tripled BWise U.S. revenue. This now positions BWise well into a leading U.S. market position, after being the European leader for several years already. As the market continues to evolve and converge across the entire GRC, regulatory and business process environments, we expect BWise’s differentiation through our roots of process management to continue to shine through.”
