Lilly Software Announces Increased Sales for First Half of 2004
Hampton, NH (USA), July 22, 2004—Lilly Software Associates, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise and supply chain solutions for manufacturers and distributors worldwide, has announced that new licenses and total sales are both ahead for the first half of 2004, over the same period a year ago. This is particularly good news given the recent state of the economy, and the fact that the comparable period last year was also strong for the company.
“We are very pleased with these increases, especially since the numbers for these same periods last year were so positive,” says Charlie Allieri, Vice President, Marketing, Lilly Software Associates. “While the industry trend has been for customers to postpone software purchases due to renewed economic concerns, it seems that our Lean customers’ results have aided in their overcoming those concerns, prompting many of them to proceed with us rather than wait.”
While visiting Lilly’s corporate headquarters this week, New Hampshire Governor Craig Benson congratulated the company on its ongoing success. “I’m glad to see Lilly Software doing so well, especially in light of the recent slow economy,” the Governor said. “New Hampshire has again been voted one of the best places in the country to live and I’m very optimistic about our economic future. As a leading New Hampshire company, your success is a big part of the reason why, and it’s certainly good news for New Hampshire employees.”
