Gross Margin decreased to 53% in the first quarter compared to 54% for the same quarter in 2018.

“We are very pleased to see such strong financial results so early in 2019. Q1 2019 EBITDA is a $925,000 improvement over Q4 2018. This rapid one quarter improvement comes from a combination of significant revenue growth and cost management initiatives. The speed and magnitude of this change speaks to the strength and flexibility of the company and taking advantage of our recent investments in new products,” said Cameron Watt, President & Chief Executive Officer.
“In addition to securing new clients, we continue to focus on creating new and innovative technology as seen in our latest patent filing we submitted in April. We are feeling very positive about our future as a leader in providing artificial intelligence (AI) solutions in the customer experience management space,” said Watt.
