On the occasion of the second quarter results announcement, Asif Khader, Managing Director, Cranes Software International Limited, said: “Cranes Software continues to witness a demand pattern that is growing exponentially as is reflected by our increased clientele and the strong financial performance declared by the Company for the current quarter under review. This quarter can be most appropriately summed as one of consolidation from the previous quarter where the Company had announced several product launches and four independent acquisitions in the data analytics space. Accordingly, revenues expanded 38 per cent while PAT was up 30per cent Q-o-Q, with operating margins of 55 per cent.”

“Although so much is being written about the sub prime woes and speculative economic slowdown in the United States, the business of data analytics and engineering simulation is increasingly becoming the oxygen for other industries to rely on, not only to differentiate themselves but also capture maximum market share by judiciously utilizing the abundant information available to support business decisions. In this regard, Cranes is cementing its presence across the globe with high focus on the European and American markets. Going forward, we expect to continue growing at a robust pace thereby evolving into a global top tier analytics driven Products and Solutions Company,” he added.
