Provenir, a global leader in AI-powered risk decisioning software, today announced record growth in 2021, achieving a 194 percent increase in new customers and a 55 percent increase in Software-as-a-Service revenue year over year.
Provenir also continued its global expansion in response to increased demand for its products and services. In 2021, the company moved into new markets, including Germany, Austria, Switzerland (DACH), Turkey, the Middle East, the Balkans, and Africa, and expanded its presence in Latin America and Asia, bringing the total number of countries served to nearly 50.
