Year after year, Creatio delivers world-class 50% revenue growth, significantly increasing its global customer base and partner network.

The power and agility of the platform combined with the team’s relentless dedication have allowed them to deliver remarkable ROI and time to value for their customers,” said Rajeev Dham, Managing Director at Sapphire Ventures.

“We couldn’t be more impressed with the company’s growth and the impact that Creatio’s platform brings to its customer community. Creatio addresses the complexity and inflexibility of traditional software vendors and enables organizations to seamlessly replace legacy technologies, delivering market-leading ROI,” said Sean Cantwell, Managing Partner at Volition Capital.
