This performance allows the company to remain focused on its plan for the future,” said Cameron Watt, President and Chief Executive Officer.
“We now have visibility into the results of our continued investment in product development, in particular, our ability to secure long-term sustainable recurring revenue. While our focus on increasing recurring revenue from software license & user fees will continue, we will also focus on increasing our recurring revenue across the entire business. Each of our offerings is positioned for long-term relationships with the clients we serve. We retained over 96% of the client revenue from 2015 through 2016. Because of a strong history with our client base, our goal is to extend the customer tenure timeframe even longer through an improved product suite. In 2017 will see an increased investment against sales and marketing efforts to ensure that we can take full advantage of the competitive position that we now find ourselves in,” said Watt.
