"We were pleased to see that we grew recurring revenue by 19% this quarter as it is a key driver to value creation," said Peter Brereton, President and CEO of TECSYS Inc. "Our services revenue grew by 25% primarily as a result of the strong backlog at the beginning of the quarter. We were also able to leverage our services organization, improving gross margin to 45% compared to 35% in the corresponding quarter of last year. While this was not a high growth quarter from a revenue standpoint, we were in the final stages of a product build cycle for which we have firm orders for our next generation product line.".
"We have significantly ramped up our investment in Sales & Marketing over the last 18 months. We are satisfied with the progress being made with the larger team and expect to see this starting to impact our top line in the coming months. Our backlog hit a new record and we have signed our largest IDN in our history during the quarter after signing another marquee name in Q2. This type of client represents great opportunity for further expansion of the business relationship," Mr. Brereton added.
