Clue reports robust growth in Q1/22 as demand for digitalising investigations grows

UK-based SaaS company attributes strong quarterly momentum to a growing demand for case management and intelligence tools to digitalise investigations.

BRISTOL: Clue, the investigation, case management and intelligence platform used globally by governments, police, private and non-profit sectors, has today (April 22) announced significant growth results for the first quarter of 2022.

The strong results speak to the widening market opportunity for investigative technology that facilitates integrity, transparency and accountability across industries. Clue enables organisations to more effectively counter threats including fraud, organised crime, corruption, terrorism and environmental crime.

Clue has reported growth at a CAGR of 90% and has achieved a net revenue retention rate of more than 100%. Following a significant growth investment, the company has welcomed on board seven new customers, increased the size of its team by 17% and expanded its product offering in Q1.

Clare Elford, CEO of Clue, said: “Our first-quarter growth is testament to the work of our new and existing client partners who are actively driving integrity across their respective sectors.”

“Legacy systems and spreadsheets are no longer sufficient to extract value from large volumes of complex data that investigations are increasingly reliant upon. Unified digital solutions offer powerful new opportunities in case management, intelligence and collaboration.”

“Clue is committed to supporting the digital transformation of investigations, case management and intelligence and is proud to be playing a valuable supporting role in the incredibly important work of our customers to prevent harm and seek justice. We are investing in the continued development of the Clue platform so that it better serves our customers in making a positive difference.”
