"I'm proud of our team as we posted another strong quarter and furthered our goal of increasing our recurring revenue," said David Karp, CEO. "With recurring revenue (subscriptions, support, and maintenance) growing 46% over the same quarter last year, this portion of our business now represents 61% of our overall revenue. Our channel partner program and Bria Teams are driving our subscription revenue. Offering our software through subscriptions allows us to stay engaged with our customers and grow with them as they deploy our communication software and services, resulting in the increased lifetime value of our customers."
"The unified communications market is large and incredibly dynamic, and CounterPath holds a strong position in the softphone category. We excel in areas where customers want to leverage existing networks and where deployments are challenging and require unique features, reliable security, and interoperability. We are focused on certain vertical markets to maximize our applications' value, such as within the health care, retail, call center, and financial markets. We will continue to market our offerings to these higher value verticals over the fiscal year," continued Karp.
"While there remains uncertainty due to the current disruptions to the economy, we have benefitted from work-from-home initiatives undertaken as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic," said Karp. "Our pipeline for the current quarter remains steady, and we expect again to see revenue growth over the comparable period last year."
