FatWire Prevails, Sees 50% Increase in Licence Bookings in Q3FatWire (news, site) is the most recent company to join the circle of bad economy repercussion evaders (BERE?).

The Web Experience Management Provider reported a 50% Increase in License Bookings in Q3, 2009, along with fourteen new customers including Amadeus, Bank of Western Australia, and Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The secret so their success? Let's take a look:


Latin America = $

Nothing brings in more money like more awareness. FatWire banked on this when it extended its global presence in Q3 by opening a new Latin American office in Brazil. Through this office FatWire plans to serve new and existing customers including iG and Grupo Santander.

In the extension vein, FatWire also launched an enhanced Global Partner Program, as well as a Customer Rescue Program designed to help legacy Vignette and Interwoven customers move platforms.

New Goods

Over the last year, FatWire has kicked out new capabilities across its product suite for enabling a certain type of web presence. That presence aims to drive marketing, customer, and cost efficiency success specifically.

Recent releases include:

“It’s been a busy time at FatWire and we are thrilled to continue to expand our geographic, customer and partner footprints,” said Yogesh Gupta, FatWire’s president and CEO. “It is great to see the economy picking up speed and to see the continued escalation of demand for FatWire’s offerings.”

Back to all that moving platforms business: FatWire has extended its Customer Rescue Program for Vignette and Interwoven customers through December 31, 2009. The program "rescues" customers by speeding up the upgrade path to FatWire Content Server for legacy WCM customers via discounts, tools and services designed to ensure a smooth transition.
