- Profit from operations was $311K in Q4 2015, compared to $757K in Q4 2014.
- Profit from operations was reduced by $270K of one-time costs due to the elimination of redundant management positions as various operating units were integrated into a single operating unit.

- Go-lives at 23 customers' sites, most notably: two health systems, one third party logistics provider, two sites for a Fortune 300 imaging manufacturer and five new hospital sites with Logi-D products.
"Our fiscal 2015 results demonstrate the inherent growth potential of our innovative solutions as revenue rose substantially and order bookings doubled over the prior year," said Peter Brereton, President and CEO of TECSYS Inc. "New order bookings in the fourth quarter were up almost 80% from last year’s fourth quarter and included a significant SAAS agreement. These record bookings impacted the quarter with significant travel and incentive expense while roughly 70% of the related revenues are future. We continued to invest for growth in areas such as marketing and R&D as well as the launch of an additional sales team, allowing one team to concentrate on Healthcare while the other concentrates on Complex Distribution. We begin 2016 in an excellent financial and competitive position and I look forward to updating you on our progress throughout the year."
