“We are pleased with the growth for the quarter as we head towards record breaking revenues in 2016. In Q3 we continued our significant investment in product development to enable the transition of our acquired and legacy technology platforms to a common standard alongside our newer product lines. While we had planned to be at break-even for the quarter the receivables loss as a result of the ITT Technical Institute bankruptcy pushed us in to a loss position as it made up 100% of the loss in Q3,” said Cameron Watt, President & Chief Executive Officer.
“In order to leverage the strength of our new technology and differentiated product lines we will be significantly increasing our sales and marketing spending to support significant growth in 2017. We will continue to invest in product development as we remain very optimistic about the direction of our product suite and are excited about the future possibilities for the company," said Watt.
