“Achieving record first quarter contract bookings for the second year in a row is a reflection of the increased momentum we have seen in our healthcare bookings in the second half of our last fiscal year, with two new hospital networks signing on this quarter. As well, we have seen great momentum with our cloud offering during the quarter where the total bookings for Cloud services surpassed the amount we booked during the whole fiscal year 2018,” said Peter Brereton, President and CEO of Tecsys Inc. “In June, we hosted a user conference and we are thankful for the strong support of our healthcare customers, which increased by 50% compared to our previous user conference held 20 months prior. This type of conference is a great investment in our customers and our future. Operating expenses remained flat compared to Q1 2018 in spite of our expenses related to our user conference.”
