Nomadesk saw a 40% growth in turnover in 2012 - ended first quarter of 2013 with a profit
Belgian technology firm Nomadesk has announced that it is continuing to maintain its growth. The company, which came in 16th place on the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 last year, reported turnover growth of just over 40% in 2012. In addition, the first quarter of 2013 ended with a profit and the outlook remains positive. Nomadesk is not releasing absolute figures for the time being, but the trend is what really matters.

Nomadesk is a textbook example of how to achieve success in a market where the "leader" gives away its product for free.

As the developer of the cloud software of the same name, Nomadesk caters to the growing demand from businesses for a simple and secure solution to share business documents and make them accessible from mobile devices.

Nomadesk focuses on indirect sales through regional resellers and strategic partners, building commercial partnerships with companies like French telecom operator SFR (which has launched SFR Sync), and US-based RES Software (which launched RES HyperDrive in the middle of last year, based on the Nomadesk technology).

The key lies in our indirect product strategy, which enables us to whitelabel the Nomadesk software and install it in private data centres. The worldwide success of cloud services such as Dropbox, reinforced by the BYOD trend, ensures that businesses and providers are looking for similar solutions. However, the European privacy framework calls for caution, which means that 'Private Cloud' installations are gaining ground. Fortunately, our Nomadesk technology supports that.
