“Our performance for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 continues to reflect momentum in the market for Tecsys solutions,” said Peter Brereton, president and CEO of Tecsys Inc. “This is our eighth straight quarter reporting record revenue. The second major COVID wave delayed some deals into our fourth quarter resulting in a significant new business pipeline for the last quarter of our fiscal year.  As that wave subsides, these deals are coming in. We were delighted to sign six new accounts in the quarter, three of which were major accounts that signed small initial orders with some significant growth to come. Our developing partner ecosystem continues to have a solid impact on our pipeline and deal flow.”

Mark Bentler, chief financial officer of Tecsys Inc., added, “We expect to see our SaaS revenue continue on its growth trend and we expect this to come from both expansion and migrations of our base customers as well as from new customer wins. With regard to new customer wins, we are pleased with the addition of two new hospital networks during the quarter.”
