Commenting on the results, Mark Meller, Chairman and CEO of SilverSun, stated, “Despite a slow start, this was an excellent quarter for SilverSun.  We completed the acquisition of Chicago-based Partners in Technology in January. Our subsidiary, SWK Technologies, was named Acumatica Partner of the Year. Our EDI product, MAPADOC, was named Acumatica ISV of the Year, and we continued to make significant inroads with our application hosting and cybersecurity-as-a-service subsidiaries.”

“Our record first quarter revenue reflects the success of various growth initiatives across all our platforms.  One principal corporate objective is to increase our subscription income, and to furthermore increase recurring revenue from all sources as a percentage of our overall revenue.  We continue to achieve in this category, with subscription revenue up 205% and recurring revenue as a percentage of total revenue rising from 39% last year to over 44% this year. We hope to raise this number to over 50% by this time next year.   Recurring revenue is sticky and more predictable, and we continue to move our business towards becoming a more subscription-based technology company.”

“We continue to see significant success with our Sage Partner Success Program, which encourages smaller Sage Software channel partners to contractually align their customers with our sales organization.  This program alone has increased our customer base by over 1800 in the past 12 months.  As a result, our inside sales team, selling product into our installed customer base, including PSP customers, generated record quarterly revenue.”

Meller continued, “The first quarter represents a good starting point for the balance of 2019.  Our sales pipeline is good across all our operations, clients continue to invest in the digital transformation of their businesses, our acquisition and PSP programs are in full gear, and we continue to prune our operations in order to become more efficient and more profitable. All in all, we are extremely optimistic about our prospects for the balance of 2019, and look forward to continuing to deliver positive results for the benefit of all our stakeholders in the coming months and years ahead.”
