Vancouver, BC, October 21, 2008 – Colligo Networks Inc., a leader in desktop collaboration solutions, reported a new record for sales in the third quarter of 2008. Third quarter sales increased 144 percent over Q3 2007 with year-to-date revenues increasing 108 percent compared to the first three quarters of 2007. The company achieved its fourth consecutive quarter of growth driven by a 192% increase in Colligo for SharePoint sales quarter over quarter of last year, and a 237% increase year over year.
“Colligo continues to achieve milestones not only in product sales, but in market acceptance and media recognition of our industry leading desktop collaboration solutions,” said Barry Jinks, President and CEO, Colligo Networks. “With the success of our third quarter, our customer base is reading like a who’s who of the Fortune 1000 and we are delighted that these respected organizations are making their operations more efficient and effective by utilizing our desktop technology.
