“We are pleased to report that our Annual Recurring Revenue Base (ARR) increased by 4.7% to $17.9 million.

Mr. Pombo continued, “In Q1 we saw steady growth in bookings, continued enterprise expansion, increased customer term commitment, and further investment in both our key verticals and sales team. Our strengthened balance sheet and revenue base give us leverage to increase adoption and usage of our powerful mobile solution by frontline workers in our key verticals.”

Terence Matthews, Chairman of ProntoForms said, “The addition of Scott Berg, former CEO of ServiceMax and current Managing Director at 10X CEO, strengthens our board and adds more enterprise field automation go-to-market knowledge.”
