UpOnline has been helping healthcare professionals for over a decade. Starting as an advanced website design and online database management provider, UpOnline developed services and tools to address the online marketing needs of customers using software-as-a-service platform, now better known to most as cloud-based services.
UpOnline's tools for email deployment and tracking, surveys, and contests, were originally available as self-serve tools for our own customers, and shortly thereafter to businesses of all sizes. In 2008, UpOnline started developing additional tools to serve another growing industry, online fundraising. Since 2009, UpOnline has helped raise almost a quarter million dollars in runs of our services and secured contracts for additional online fundraising events. All without a dedicated sales force in this market.
Full-service consulting and dedicated client representatives arose as a way to package UpOnline's tools with best practices and experience to maximize results for various industries. As we began to receive more and more healthcare professional referrals we developed a package specifically for that industry.
UpOnline continues to evolve our services in a constantly-changing environment to meet our clients' needs and help them capitalize on emerging technologies. Our multi-industry approach has allowed us to grow in all economic climates and take advantage of opportunities as they arise. Most of our new business comes from referrals from our existing clients. Our service business model ensures a ongoing flow of revenue from existing clients which funds ongoing development and service enhancements.
