Matthew L. Chretien, President and CEO of Intellinetics, stated, “I am more than pleased at the progress we have made over the past year, particularly the last half of the year. I am convinced that 2015 is the year we will show significant financial progress in both material growth and profitability.
“It is our goal to become a meaningful provider to the nearly $6 billion ECM market. We now have a focused strategy, along with the necessary resources, to significantly advance our IntelliCloud program. Our fourth quarter results – and the 72% increase in quarter-over-quarter revenues – show me that we are solidly moving in the right direction.
“Two new channel managers, one for OED and one for ECM business segments, are already producing results. The early positive impact on performance of our channel and partner-focused strategy is evidenced by the addition of 13 new channel partners in Q4.”
Chretien continued, “Partner-driven direct sales were a strong revenue contributor in Q4 due to a faster ramp-up with the advantage of proprietary integration that delivers the unique value of turnkey integration to customers’ existing installation base. These contributions were meaningful while our new and expanding OED / ECM partner network began to build sales funnels based upon Intellinetics solutions they now sell.”
