NEWBURY, England, January 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Cognito, the Mobile Workforce Management specialist, today announced that it has closed its financial year with a record signing of 4,100 subscribers, the most successful year in the company's history. The company's success has continued into the new financial year, with the addition of a further 1,600 users so far taking the total number of subscribers beyond 20,000.

Cognito has also achieved Microsoft Gold Partnership status and has been elevated to a Motorola PartnerSelect Premier Solution Partner. Its success was also reflected in a number of key customer wins and extended deployments across a spectrum of industry sectors including ao, Alpha Heating, GSH Group, Lorne Stewart and Scottish Borders Housing Association.

Commenting on the results, John Pocock, Cognito's Chairman, stated: Companies are increasingly seeing mobility as a vital strategic element for success: with fuel prices in fluctuation and an uncertain economy, finding ways to improve the efficiency and potential of the mobile workforce is essential for organisations looking to improve their bottom line. Thanks to our ability to offer a full end-to-end solution including software, infrastructure, consultancy and implementation, such companies continue to approach us for expertise. He continued: Cognito has made important steps this year towards being the supplier of choice for all mobile data applications, signing a record number of new customers and passing the 20,000 subscriber mark. The company has continued to develop its expertise in complex mobile data system implementations and our customers are taking advantage by implementing increasingly sophisticated solutions for large numbers of users.

Cognito's net profit registered a 110% increase on last year, pushing annual turnover above target to just under GBP9 million with the consultancy arm of the company performing especially well. These strategic consultancy relationships with organisations such as Addison Lee have been keystones in Cognito's 2008 success.
