"We continue to see traction on our SaaS business model, as we add new customers as well as expand within existing customers since we launched our recurring revenue model in 2018. Our pipeline remains above $9 million and we have made significant progress working with these enterprise opportunities to convert them into strong long term revenue accounts moving ahead," said Andrew T. Duncan, CEO of Boardwalktech. "This quarter's sequential growth highlights the strength of our recurring revenue business model that is driving high margin, sticky revenue for Boardwalktech. As we focus on moving into the new calendar year, we are enthusiastic about the prospective opportunities that are in front of us, and while they typically have a long sales cycle, we are confident that we are now at the tail end and will see strong conversions in the months ahead."
