OTTAWA, May 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ProntoForms Corporation (TSXV: PFM), the global leader in smart mobile forms for enterprise, announced today its first quarter (Q1) financial results for the period ended March 31, 2019.

“We are pleased to report that Q1 was another strong quarter with solid recurring revenue growth, continued reduction in losses and more enterprise expansion. Recurring revenue grew by 7% sequentially following 6% sequential growth in Q4 2018. This growth came through both direct sales engagements and partners.” said Alvaro Pombo, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of ProntoForms. “Our Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) Base grew 26% over the last year to reach $13.1 million at March 31, 2019. Customers with more than $100,000 of ARR each represented 28% of that base—up from 20% a year ago.”

Mr. Pombo continued, “Our ongoing investment into our low-code app development platform is proving to be a core accelerator in our enterprise expansion strategy. We’ve seen multiple customers rapidly deploy the solution into different divisions and geographies. Early success, with clear and quantifiable ROI in one group, drives adoption in other divisions looking to emulate that success.”
