Burlington-based Web publishing software firm Acquia said Wednesday it received $45.3 million in revenue in 2012, more than doubling its top line from the previous year.

Acquia also said it has doubled its employee count in the past 15 months, and now has about 340 employees globally, with half of them in Burlington.

That's up from the 260 employees Acquia had in late November, when the firm raised $30 million in funding.

The company provides tools and support for enterprises using the open-source Drupal Web publishing platform. Drupal has surged in popularity among enterprises in recent years due to the potential for cost savings and the flexibility of design.
Acquia previously reported receiving $21.8 million in revenue in 2011. Those revenue results had made Acquia the fastest-growing software company on the 2012 Inc. 500 list, and the eighth fastest-growing company on the list overall.

The firm says it now has more than 3,800 customers, up from about 2,000 at the end of 2011. New customers include Georgetown University, Olympus Corporation of the Americas and Polycom.

Acquia is "enabling our customers to build disruptive digital businesses in an open source way," co-founder and CTO Dries Buytaert said in a news release announcing the revenue growth Wednesday.

Key customer sectors include media and entertainment (NBC, Warner Music Group), high-tech (eBay, Twitter), health care (Humana) and higher-education (Stanford University).

Best Places to work 2013
BOSTON - The Boston Business Journal has named Acquia one of the Best Places to Work in Massachusetts in its eleventh annual regional awards program. The honor recognizes Acquia’s achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture.

Acquia was one of over 400 companies to qualify for consideration based on a two-stage nomination process and the results of employee-satisfaction surveys taken throughout March & April.

“Our Best Places to Work event will again recognize the importance of cultivating a great workplace culture as a competitive advantage," said Chris McIntosh, publisher of the Boston Business Journal. "Companies on our list can be justifiably proud of creating a high level of workplace satisfaction during an economy where traditional rewards like big raises and bonuses aren't as easy to give. In good times and in bad, our results validate how the creation of the right corporate culture can create powerful business advantages. Employees are proud to work for companies that are about more than just business.”

The survey project was launched in January by the Boston Business Journal in conjunction with market research firm Quantum Workplace of Omaha, NE. Companies were evaluated on the results of more than 18,000 employee-satisfaction surveys. Employees answered questionnaires that addressed such factors as their pride in the company, company encouragement, support and recognition of achievement and relationships with co-workers and supervisors. The results were analyzed and scored by assigning points to each question.

80 companies total … the top 25 companies in three size categories plus the top 5 in a new category called “PR/Communications” will be awarded during a lively cocktail reception on June 13th at the iconic CitiCenter /Wang Theatre and profiled in a special supplement of the Boston Business Journal on June 14th.

De ondersteuning die wij hebben gekregen van Acquia was erg goed, snel en efficiënt. Ze voegen steeds weer nieuwe services en tools toe, dus wat je koopt is niet statisch, maar groeit in waarde. Met maar drie mensen in onze afdeling internettechnologie heeft Acquia ervoor gezorgd dat we veel meer met Drupal kunnen dan anders mogelijk was geweest.
