SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwired - Mar 30, 2016) - MasterControl Inc., (MasterControl) a leading global provider of enterprise quality management software (EQMS) and quality consulting services for regulated businesses, today announced that 2015 was a record-setting year.

MasterControl secured a 19 percent increase in sales across the enterprise and small and medium business (SMB) markets, which marks the seventh consecutive year of double-digit annual growth for the company. MasterControl reports an extremely high customer retention rate of 97 percent, which exceeds enterprise software standards.

In addition to enhanced relationships with several large enterprise customers, MasterControl addressed the SMB space by offering its Spark™ quality management software solution. This allowed MasterControl to achieve significant market expansion, particularly with small life science and other regulated manufacturers. Company leaders also emphasize how MasterControl's strong relationships with global regulatory bodies continue to instill buyer confidence, which contributes to consistent annual growth.
