Revenue up 13% - SaaS working wonders for Aussie tech giant

30 May 17

TechnologyOne, an Australian enterprise software company, has released its financial results for the half year ending in 31 March 2017.

Licence Fees are up 30% to $24.1 million, and Profit Before Tax (PBT) up 10% to $10.3 million.

With 199 TechnologyOne Cloud customers, the company claims that the Annual Contract Value (ACV) is now at $19.9 million (recurring each year), an increase of over 93% from last year’s figure of $10.3 million.

The company claims their TechnologyOne Cloud platform contributed a $937k profit in the half, compared to a $922k loss this time last year. This growth is due to the mass production of Software as a Service (SaaS) architecture.
