“TrackX has remained focused on the continued execution of its core strategies,” said CEO Tim Harvie. “The Company’s land and expand strategy and customer success efforts have generated meaningful results. In Q2, the Company expanded its solution footprint both in terms of capabilities and number of locations for many customers including a global household appliance manufacturer, Carvana, a large US baked snack food manufacturer, the world’s second largest processor and marketer of beef, pork and poultry and the Port of Oakland. We will remain focused on driving increased recurring revenue, which was up 25% over the same period last year with significant growth anticipated throughout 2019. This revenue gain will be realized from both the onboarding of new customers and the expansion commitments we have as a result of the successful execution of our land and expand strategy.”

- Port of Oakland extends license for security and compliance solution;
- Announce support for Amazon Managed Blockchain;

With expansion opportunities occurring as planned, TrackX is on target to more than double the total number of implementations in fiscal 2019 over fiscal 2018. As expansion in the accounts continue, we anticipate a substantial increase in recurring revenue run rate at the end of 2019.
Through continued focus on customer success and high quality of customer service, TrackX will continue to improve communication to the market – like the case study with a global household appliance manufacturer - with new use cases and webinars showcasing our clients and their implementations of TrackX solutions. TrackX will leverage our success within existing accounts to target additional enterprise accounts within these respective industries. In doing so, the Company expects to see shorter sales cycles in the closing of new pipeline opportunities, and increased velocity in expansions of existing accounts.
The main areas of focus in 2019 will continue to be returnable asset tracking, high value asset tracking (i.e. IT asset tracking) and supply chain management. Yard management opportunities continue to emerge, but throughout 2019 the Company is seeing an increase in pipeline activity specifically related to high value asset tracking and returnable asset tracking opportunities. Within enterprise accounts, opportunities in these areas typically address a large volume of assets, span multiple locations, generate a rapid ROI, are more readily implemented by our partners, and represent larger revenue opportunities with higher gross margins.
TrackX has continued to invest in its core GAME platform and solution offerings, developing features and updating our product roadmap based upon customer feedback. In Q2 2019 TrackX enabled dozens of new enhancements to workflows, IoT Sensor support, and the configurability of its GAME platform and plans to offer support to new ERP and operational systems.
TrackX will also continue to expand and leverage its partner network. Not only do partners provide implementation resources to meet increased demand, they have access to a very large potential customer base. Through recent joint marketing initiatives and solution webinars in collaboration with partners, the Company generated numerous leads and pipeline opportunities. Throughout the balance of fiscal 2019, the Company has commitments from multiple partners to host additional solution webinars and marketing events. As partner activity continues to increase, new opportunities are generated and TrackX converts them into customer implementations, the Company anticipates significant growth in higher margin recurring SaaS revenue throughout Fiscal 2019.
The Company has also begun to develop relationships with additional partners to expand its solutions into other industries, increase its delivery capacity and to expand upon its IoT sensor support. Over subsequent quarters, the Company anticipates that it will formalize additional partnerships over the subsequent quarters and that these partnerships will further accelerate revenue growth for TrackX.
