2009 Meeting the Challenge of a Difficult Business Evnvironment

LAGUNA NIGUEL, CA. January 31, 2010. During 2009, Blueridge Software, Inc. continued to grow its customer base and reach in the marketplace in spite of a very adverse business environment.

“The business climate was more challenging than many of us have experienced in our lifetimes,” said Blueridge President Stan Littley. “Corporations cut back because of the financial crisis, and as tax revenues dropped, there were particularly sharp cutbacks in state and local government expenditures.

“Fortunately, the difficult business environment did not have a material impact on our performance,” Littley continued. “Recurring revenues increased over the previous year, and we continued to expand our customer base in a wide range of sectors, including health care, financial institutions, education, and non-profits, among others.

“We expect that the business climate will continue to be less than optimum in the coming year. But we are positioned well. Increasingly, businesses realize that more effective management of their contracts can eliminate unnecessary costs, reduce waste, and help protect their bottom line. During 2010, we will continue to focus on offering affordable Contract Assistant products that meet this need and backing up those products with excellent customer service,” he concluded.
