Commenting on the results, Mark Meller, Chairman and CEO of SilverSun, stated, “It has only been 6 months since our new team took over the management of our SWK subsidiary. In that short time, we have delivered the two best operating quarters in the history of the company. We have focused our attention on profitability, reducing general and administrative expenses, removing artificial silos, and improving the culture of our dynamic and vital organization. The results speak for themselves.”
Meller continued, “Our growth this quarter, and this year, cuts across most of our business units. Sales of Sage ERP X3 have aggressively picked up after a slow start to 2016. We are seeing a higher level of sales activity in our NetSuite and Acumatica cloud ERP practices. Our MAPADOC EDI solution has just experienced its best quarter ever. Our managed service provider is growing rapidly, and is now by itself generating almost $300,000 in monthly recurring revenue. In addition, our sales pipeline is now deeper, across the board, than it has been in recent memory.”
Meller concluded, “Our primary corporate goal for 2017 is to up-list to NASDAQ. We have already begun conversations with investment bankers about starting the process. I will be conducting a series of roadshows with investors and at conferences in the coming weeks and months to help facilitate this process. In addition, in the coming months we will continue to aggressively fill our sales pipeline, increase our gross margins by improving billable consultant utilization, and increase our operating margins by continuing to rationalize our expenses with our current level of sales. Finally, with our cash position, strong balance sheet, and ever increasing stream of recurring revenue, I am confident that we will be back on the acquisition trail in 2017. We are extremely excited about our future prospects.”
