Amadeus Consulting's total revenues increased by 30 percent in 2010 compared to 2009. The company saw notable sales growth from key technology deals that included:
- Providing the integrated technology powering Denver and Chicago B-cycle's bike-sharing programs, including the kiosk interface, customer Web services, Web-based administrative tool and iPhone™ application.
- Beginning the first phase of a three-phase project to develop a database-driven Web portal to benchmark airport performance for the Transportation Research Board (TRB) of the National Academies.
- Developing a Microsoft® Silverlight® Web-based application for city employees to update and manage traffic signals remotely through the Web for All Traffic Solutions (ATS).
- The development of dozens of mobile applications across all platforms by the company’s award-winning mobile team.
"Organizations of all sizes know that when a comprehensive technology solution is required, they can count on Amadeus Consulting to deliver results,” said Jay Millard, chief marketing officer for Amadeus Consulting. "I attribute our success this year directly to this total solution approach. We make sure that we cultivate a deep skill base across diverse technologies in our organization to meet the complex challenges facing businesses today.”
Amadeus Consulting furthered its customer support efforts by rolling out 24 x 7 software maintenance, a feature not often offered by comparable software providers.
Amadeus Consulting expanded its software development portfolio by developing two platforms that give customers affordable, user-controlled tools that optimize their Web environment. The e-commerce platform includes search engine optimization, supports large inventories and all payment types, and can be deployed in less than four weeks. The Virtuoso Website builder platform comes with website hosting and customer support 24 hours a day, seven days a week for less than half the annual cost of a full-time employee. Both platforms allow medium-sized companies to launch full-featured websites without setting aside a large budget or using their own internal resources.
Amadeus Consulting anticipated demand and expanded its workforce accordingly in the areas of search visibility, including SEO, Web analytics and conversion rate optimization, user experience development to simplify the roll-out of new applications, and mobile application development for Android™, iPhone™, Windows® Phone 7 and iPad™. To round out the team's experience, the company hired a PMI-certified project manager to drive process performance into each technology project it undertakes to continue to come in on-time and on-budget.
"Everyone can agree that 2010 was a tough year for businesses overall, and our momentum attests to our commitment to provide our customers smart, cost-effective technology that makes their business more profitable and competitive," said Lisa Calkins, chief executive officer for Amadeus Consulting. "We will continue to deliver the most up-to-date solutions and provide unmatched customer service into 2011 and beyond."
