Management Commentary

“We continue to execute against our strategy and gain operating leverage from our software platform, evidenced by delivering revenue growth over last year and positive earnings this quarter,” said Donovan Jones, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We had a solid quarter in both EMEA and the Americas. We entered into a contract with an international, tier-one service provider with tens of millions of users and completed customization services to enable the service provider to deploy our software in the coming quarters. We continue to see increased deployment of our SDK/API in the contact center vertical – we now have six of the top ten contact center solution providers deploying our software. The effort we have made through digital marketing is increasing our funnel, driving business development opportunities and software sales. Our cloud-based subscription platforms are growing with small businesses, and with the launch of our collaboration product in the coming quarters, this customer growth will continue to accelerate,” continued Jones.
