    “We are actively transforming Tecsys into a global SaaS software company.  Our acquisitions are successfully integrating and we are winning in Europe, in North America and across all of our verticals.  We are pleased to continue this excellent momentum of delivering another strong quarter of financial results. We are experiencing strong SaaS bookings for  new customers and we are starting to see SaaS bookings from our existing customers that have made the decision to migrate to SaaS.  This not only creates added recurring revenue but also increases our ability to provide world-class value to those customers.  All verticals contributed nicely to the results, with new hospital networks joining us, an existing network expanding very significantly and some great wins in complex distribution” said Peter Brereton, President and CEO of Tecsys Inc. “We continue to successfully drive operational efficiencies, focus on long-term profitable growth, and deliver superior returns to our shareholders.”

    Mark Bentler, Chief Financial Officer of Tecsys Inc., added, “We are pleased with another record setting bookings and revenue quarter and continued strength in SaaS results.  Our year to date operating results are ahead of our plan.  We continue to transition our revenue base away from a perpetual license model and towards a higher-quality, stable, recurring SaaS licensing model.  This will have an impact on operating results in the intermediate term.  We believe that this accelerated transition to SaaS will provide an excellent outcome for both customers and shareholders.”
