2013 Operational Highlights
2013 represented the first full year since the adoption of the "Service as a Solution Model," a significant change from the previous business model which saw the machines being sold outright to customers all across North America. The adoption of the new service model required a significant investment of time and resources in order for management to ensure that the Company is well positioned to build off the foundation established in Fiscal 2013. Customers have responded positively to the change and the Company ended 2013 with 51 machines installed on a service basis as at December 31, 2013, which includes 4 machines installed on a trial basis.
The majority of the activity and revenues to date have been generated from the Toronto area; however, the Company continues to deploy and shift resources to better support our launch into the U.S. market and is reviewing other possible U.S. locations for expansion. Initial results continue to be positive, and we remain confident that this business model will be replicable in many other markets.
"Fiscal 2013 represented a significant year for our business," said Shawn Dym, CEO of Totally Green. "We developed significant relationships with current and prospective customers nationally in the United States and Canada, with the aim of securing contracts to roll out the ORCA solution across their respective platforms in North America. These, as well as other sales efforts, have been very promising and continue to reinforce the Company's decision to adopt the Service as a Solution Model. We've also made a number of improvements to the ORCA system, as well as our overall service offering which will be rolled out in Fiscal 2014 which should further boost our sales efforts to date. We remain committed to the business model and look forward to executing on the foundation built in Fiscal 2013."
