We have continued to reduce operating expenses to enable more of our revenue to fall to the bottom line.  Even before adjusting for currency, our operating expenses as a percent of revenue continue to drop and our YTD operating earnings are up 32% or 53% after adjusting for currency swings.” said Peter Brereton, President and CEO of TECSYS Inc. “The pipeline looks good, our backlog remains strong, and the fourth quarter is off to a very strong start with the signing of a large new enterprise IDN contract and several base account projects.”
