We have succeeded in meeting these impressive results thanks to our strong increase in revenues resulting from our wide range of products and solutions, our extensive geographic presence and as a result of our increased efficiency. Our strategy to offer customers comprehensive solutions was very successful with several very significant sales. Orad’s solutions’ offering brings added value to the customer by simplifying his workflow, while offering a one stop shop for the entire solution. Our servers took the forefront this year, penetrating new markets. We are seeing increased interest from existing and new customers, and given the size of the potential market, we are aiming to increase our market share. Our strategy to strengthen our presence in the North American market in 2014 proved successful, doubling our bookings compared to 2013.

 

Outlook:

“I am confident that Orad will continue in 2015 in the same direction as we continue to invest in cutting edge new technologies and increase our presence in existing and new markets,” said Sharir.
