Peter Brereton, President and CEO of TECSYS Inc., commented on the results: "We believe that we have the best supply chain execution suite on the market today and the market is beginning to agree with us. Q1, 2013 was a great quarter. Momentum from Q3 and Q4, 2012 continued in this quarter with a substantial revenue increase compared to last year for both of our products and services, driving gross profit up by 38% and resulting in a ten cent EPS. Our ability to capture major accounts, particularly in the past five years, has significantly improved and solidified our recurring revenue stream. Among the many agreements, this quarter included the signing of a major contract with an existing customer, a Fortune 500 manufacturer and distributor, which contributed to this quarter's growth and profitability. Furthermore, our investment in our services infrastructure is starting to pay off; we were able to increase delivery to our clients and complete the deployment of nineteen customer sites contributing to a 12% increase in services revenue in Q1."

During the quarter, the Company signed a significant number of agreements with existing and new clients including:

  • Three in the healthcare sector
  • Fifteen in general high-volume distribution
  • Thirteen in the SMB sector
