Nitro’s Top Three 2019 Milestones

2019 was an amazing year—our best yet! The holidays are right around the corner and now seemed like the perfect time to stop and celebrate a great year for Nitro. In 2019 alone, we achieved numerous milestones, from listing on the ASX, to launching the latest version of the Nitro Productivity Suite, to moving to three new offices to accommodate our growing team of Nitronauts 

While 2019 has certainly been a banner year for Nitro, we’re just getting started. Check out the highlights from this past year below. 

1. Nitro became a public company on the Australian Securites Exchange (ASX)

When Nitro was founded nearly 15 years ago, we had a simple vision: we wanted to make document productivity easy, powerful, affordable, and available to all. Flashforward, Nitro serves millions of users every month, counts thousands of businesses, government agencies and educational institutions as its customers, and has been deployed at scale at some of the world’s largest and best-known companies. 

And on December 11 in Sydney, Nitro became a public company on the ASX as ‘NTO’! We still can’t contain our excitement about such an important milestone on Nitro’s journey. The entire Nitro team around the world were part of this momentous occasion. Thank you to all our Nitronauts, customers, partners, and friends for making this possible.  

“While we couldn’t be any prouder of what we’ve accomplished together so far, we know there is a lot more still to achieve and we intend to deliver on our promise to transform the way the world works with documents”. Sam Chandler, Nitro CEOand Founder 

We can’t wait for the next 15 years!

2. Launching our latest version of the Nitro Productivity Suite

On September 24, we announced the 2019 release of the Nitro Productivity Suite to bring PDF productivity, unlimited eSigning, and document workflow analytics to more of our customers than ever before. This release is a milestone in our mission to enable 100% digital document workflows.  

Most knowledge workers use PDF documents and interact with forms and signing workflows every day, and yet only 15% of those employees traditionally can collaborate on, edit, or eSign those documents. Our latest release gives customers even more of what they love because we made it better than ever with their input. With dozens of new features and enhancements, this release has something for everyone.   

For end-users, we’ve streamlined some of their most common workflows to involve fewer steps, made OCR performance faster than ever, and significantly improved the eSigning experience. For IT, we’ve made it easier to manage and deploy the Nitro Productivity Suite through improved license management and SSO, and we also added critical security features like two-factor authentication for eSigning. Our latest offering has everything from productivity tools to workflow capabilities to category-leading analytics.   

We’re incredibly humbled that over 10,000 businesses—including 65% of the 2019 Fortune 500—have chosen to partner with us on their digital transformation journey. 

3. Three new office moves: new global HQ in San Francisco, new Dublin and London office

In 2019 we had a big focus on expanding our team internationally. This year alone we moved into three new offices to accommodate our growing team; new Nitro global HQ in San Francisco, new Dublin EMEA HQ as well as a new London office. We are now experts in moving! 

It’s inspiring to see the progress since opening these offices. We established our first Dublin office in 2013 with just three employees and have since rapidly expanded. In 2014, we committed to creating 50 new roles in Dublin within the first two years of operation and now we employ more than 70 people in our Dublin home.  

It’s been very exciting to see many new Nitronauts jump on board with us and share the passion for Nitro’s mission.   

We are proud of everything we’ve achieved in 2019, but Nitro is just getting started. In the years ahead, we will be focused on long-term growth, driving us to be even more efficient and leverage what makes Nitro unique to create new businesses and continue to expand.
