Our recurring business (ARR) is approximately $7.50 million at the end of the quarter with ARCTM representing approximately 73% of this figure. As a result, our gross margins were positively impacted, growing to 81% this quarter, up from 75% in Q2 2018.” Mr. O’Neill continued, “Our new ARCTM sales of $0.92 million and professional services sales of $0.42 million in the quarter resulted in an increase to the subscription and professional services backlog to $1.18 million and $0.83 million, respectively. We expect the bulk of this backlog will translate to revenue in the coming one to two quarters.”
Operational Highlights for Q2:
- Partnership with MasterCard: During the quarter, VersaPay successfully completed a deal with MasterCard, a leading global payments leader, to partner together to introduce a Virtual Card Receivables Service. This Virtual Card Receivables Service will aggregate information from MasterCard Issuers related to Virtual Card payments by their corporate customers and compile it into one comprehensive file, available in a digital format that is preferred by suppliers. The solution eliminates the manual process of reconciling incoming payment information. This joint initiative will improve the experience of accepting virtual credit cards for businesses across the US, Canada, and around the globe.
- Strong quarter for ARC™ sales: 15 new ARCTM wins during the quarter that represented over $0.92 million in new ARCTM ARR, with about 34% of sales coming through channel partners.
