30 May 2017

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.
