Finnish software firm Digia saw its sales boosted by demand for Microsoft-based ERP projects in its latest quarter of trading.
Revenue climbed 7.5 per cent to €35.5m, while operating profit rocketed 31.6 per cent to €4.1m.
"In the second quarter, net sales were boosted especially by ERP systems based on Microsoft technology and customised industry-independent solutions that we implement for a wide range of customers," Digia CEO Timo Levoranta said.
"In both of these areas, there is an even greater emphasis on the need for data utilisation, such as incorporating analytics features into solutions through integration interfaces."
Levoranta (pictured) labelled Digia the leading ERP provider in the Finish market last year after completing an acquisition in the space.
The CEO said that the solid growth was a sign of how well the firm has adapted to remote working due to the coronavirus.
Looking at the half-year, Digia saw two thirds of sales generated by its services and maintenance business, with the remaining third coming from its project business.
The CEO did however say that there had been a slowdown in some client segments in the first half of the year.
"The exceptional business environment in the first half of the year impacted on customer demand," he said.
"In an uncertain market, customers are typically more careful in evaluating the size of their development projects and project implementation schedules.
"This was evident in the second quarter in the form of project startup delays and a decrease in the volume of development activities among certain customers."
The firm's share price is up by half since the start of 2020.
