OTTAWA, May 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ProntoForms Corporation (TSX-V:PFM), the global leader in smart mobile forms for enterprise, today announced its first quarter (Q1) financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2018.


“ProntoForms demonstrated continued momentum in Q1 with 5% sequential growth in recurring revenue following on the heels of 6% sequential growth in the fourth quarter. The company has commenced reporting US Dollar Annual Recurring Revenue base (“ARR”) at the end of each period as a key performance indicator. The increase in Q1 ARR was 5.9% continuing the growth trend going into Q2,” said Alvaro Pombo, CEO of ProntoForms. “We have proven that our platform is built for the enterprise, with the scalability, security, and cloud integrations that major global enterprises require. Our recurring revenue base now includes 11 customers that contribute more than $100,000 of ARR, which is up from 4 such customers at the end of Q1 last year. These same customers represent 19% of our recurring revenue base, up from 9% in Q1 of last year. This growth comes from both new enterprise customers and significant expansion from existing customers. Our growing roster of channel partners is also bringing us to opportunities where enterprise grade cloud-based mobile workflows are needed.”
