“We are pleased to report that our Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) base grew 30% year-to-year to reach $15.03 million by September 30, 2019. Recurring revenue continued to grow reaching $3.5 million in Q3, representing a 6% increase over Q2 2019 and 26% over Q3 2018. Our accelerating growth continues to be driven by enterprise expansion; accounts with more than $100K of ARR now represent 35% of our base, up from 24% a year ago,” said Alvaro Pombo, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of ProntoForms.
