Whatfix launches new data centres in Europe
Addressing the growing demands in the European market, Whatfix opened data centres in Frankfurt, Germany and Oslo, Norway. For Whatfix the European region is a key market overseas as it contributes around 20% of total revenue.
The launch of new data centres in the European region has come after Whatfix had a successful growth year 2021. Whatfix achieved 76% revenue growth Y-o-Y moving into 2021.
While, new customer wins helped Whatfix increase its new business revenue by 85% in 2021, the expansion of its existing business revenue increased by 250%. Among the new customer wins, several new enterprise customers have deployed Whatfix for employees and customers.
This indicates significant growth in the number of accounts along with more usage of Whatfix’s digital adoption platform across multiple applications.
“Our success in 2021 shows that Whatfix and our solutions are optimized for an era defined by change and uncertainty,” said Khadim Batti, CEO and Co-Founder of Whatfix.
“With a comprehensive brand refresh, and a strengthened product roadmap, we’re eager to continue our culture of excellence, innovation, and customer-first focus to drive more positive outcomes for our stakeholders in 2022,” added Batti.
Whatfix’s customer-centricity has resulted in a best-in-class net revenue retention rate (NRR) at 132% in the enterprise customers segment in 2021.
Microsoft, Westland Insurance Group, Allstate Insurance Group, Datacom Group, The Netherlands Red Cross, Coca-Cola Beverages Africa, Geodis, Telenor, Ayr Farmers Mutual Insurance Company and Aggreko are among the many customers of Whatfix.
