OAKLAND, Calif., February 17, 2021 — Riffyn, provider of the industry's most widely adopted cloud system for intelligent process design, closed another record-breaking year. In 2020, for the fourth year in a row, the company doubled its annual recurring revenue and customer base across the biopharmaceutical, material, renewable energy, healthcare, and food industries.

As the biopharma industry urgently responded to COVID-19, it also accelerated its transformation of aging IT infrastructure, particularly in cloud computing (46% of projected IT spending in 2021). Riffyn’s cloud software for intelligent process development, Riffyn Nexus™, supports such digital transformation at 3 of the top 6 largest biopharma companies and 3 of the top 5 largest industrial biotech companies.

Riffyn's business achievements for 2020:

  • Expanded enterprise adoption: 64% percent of Riffyn's new revenue came from the top 50 life sciences companies in the world.

  • Sustained customer growth: Riffyn customers expanded their deployment scale by 154% in 2020 while doubling its customer base.

  • Demand surged from biotech startups: Riffyn's startup customer base increased by over 700%, particularly in organizations advancing products through scale-up to manufacturing.

"One of the major selling points for us was that Riffyn Nexus does not try to do everything and lock out other software companies," said Doug Friedman, CEO of BioMADE. "It does what it does extremely well and will allow us to plug into a diverse software ecosystem."
