ProntoForms Reports Q3 2018 Financial Results

Continues Momentum with 6% Sequential Growth in Recurring Revenue

OTTAWA, Ont. - November 8, 2018 - ProntoForms Corporation (TSXV: PFM), the global leader in smart mobile forms for enterprise, today announced its third quarter (Q3) financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018.


"In the 3rd quarter, we recorded 24% year over year growth in recurring revenue and 6% over Q2.  Our rebounding growth in recurring revenue is a result of strong sales results combined with reduced overall churn and allowed us to make continued progress in reducing our operating loss,” said Alvaro Pombo, CEO of ProntoForms. “We also had higher revenue and margins in our professional services practice, as we worked on new enterprise deployments of ProntoForms.

“The need for our platform continues to grow in large enterprises. IT and the business process owners want low-code solutions that gives them the agility to mobilize field processes with true enterprise grade management, scalability, security, and cloud integrations. Our strategy continues to be focused at engaging larger enterprise accounts, which typically provide longer committed contracts and future expansion opportunities. Our Annual Recurring Revenue (“ARR”) base now includes 14 customers that contribute more than $100,000 of ARR each, representing 24% of the base, up significantly from last year. In addition, we are driving new business with key channel partners that are bringing enterprise opportunities."
