SaaS companies need to use Qovery because it simplifies the process of deploying and managing cloud infrastructure and applications. With Qovery, SaaS companies can easily and quickly deploy their applications, saving time and resources and allowing them to focus on what they do best. Qovery also offers a range of automation tools and features, such as Preview Environments, RBAC, Container, Cronjob, and Lifecycle Job, which give SaaS companies more control over their deployments and make it easier to manage their applications. In addition, Qovery's user-friendly interface and excellent customer support make it easy for SaaS companies to get up and running with minimal hassle. Overall, Qovery offers SaaS companies a reliable and efficient way to manage their cloud infrastructure and applications.

50 new users per day on average.. 100% inbound, and still no sales!

Qovery has experienced impressive growth in terms of user acquisition this year, with an average of 40-70 new users per day through inbound channels. This demonstrates the strong demand for our platform and the value it provides to businesses in the cloud infrastructure and automation space.

Importantly, all of the sales we drive are through product-led growth, meaning that we rely on the quality and usefulness of our product to attract and retain customers. This approach has allowed us to scale rapidly and build a loyal user base without needing a traditional sales team.

Despite this impressive growth, we have not yet added a sales team to our organization. Instead, we are focused on continuing to improve and innovate our product, with the goal of delivering the best possible experience for our users. With a strong product and a growing user base, we are well-positioned for continued success in the future.

30 features released

Our team has also been hard at work this year, releasing more than 30 new features, including Preview Environments, RBAC, Container, Cronjob, Terraform, and Lifecycle Job. These updates have helped our customers even further by giving them more control over their deployments and making it even easier to manage their applications.

Qovery V3... Users' obsession UI delivered

We're also thrilled to announce the release of our new web interface, Qovery V3, which is now available in open-source. Written in React and built with an obsession for providing the best user experience possible, Qovery V3 is a major step forward for our platform. We want to extend a heartfelt thank you to our users and contributors for their valuable feedback, which has helped us create a product that meets the needs of our customers.

Our Users have spoken. Our Users Love us

In addition to these achievements, we are also proud to announce that we have been named a G2 High Performer in the category of Cloud and Infrastructure Automation platforms for four consecutive years. This recognition is a testament to the love and support of our users, and we are grateful for their continued trust in our platform.
