Management Commentary

“While Q3 was a bit challenging with respect to the closing of new enterprise opportunities, we grew recurring revenue, our core metric, through execution of our expansion strategy and the further development of our partner network,” said CEO Tim Harvie. “Our sales pipeline continues to grow steadily; we have multiple expansion opportunities within our installed customer base that we anticipate completing in calendar 2019, and we are in discussions with several Fortune 100 companies for initial deployments. We look forward to updating investors on these opportunities as they continue to develop.”

Business Outlook

TrackX has remained focused on the continued execution of its core strategies.  The Company’s land and expand strategy has seen growth in both our solution’s capabilities and the number of locations for many existing customers. Expansion within our existing client base during the quarter and additional deployments beyond include:

  • Global household appliance manufacturer: we completed 2 additional implementations of GAME for Supply Chain Management (SCM), bringing the total to 7 implementations to date and four additional sites are planned through the remainder of calendar year 2019.
     
  • Carvana:  We have continued to expand at a national level, and in Q3 completed an enterprise-wide update to our new GAME for Automotive solution;
     
  • The world’s second largest processor and marketer of beef, pork and poultry: we implemented three additional locations for a total of 16, and three additional locations are planned to be completed prior to the end of fiscal 2019;
     
  • Port of Oakland: renewed its GAME platform license for an additional three years to manage access, security and related operations within the Port; and,
     
  • Major U.S.-based baked goods manufacturer: expanded their GAME for SCM to their second location during the quarter and committed to deploy at their third location within calendar year 2019. 

With expansion commitments from existing customers alone, we are on target to more than double the total number of implementations in fiscal 2019 over fiscal 2018.  And with more implementations, we anticipate recurring revenues to ramp significantly as more assets, locations and processes are managed by the TrackX solution.

Our focus areas remain returnable asset tracking, high value asset tracking (i.e. IT asset tracking) and supply chain management. Significant pipeline activity in each of these segments is anticipated to drive additional revenue growth over the subsequent quarters. While Q3 was a slow quarter with respect to the closing of new customer engagements, much progress has been made in progressing these large enterprise opportunities through the sales process. It is anticipated that the result of these efforts will be realized over the upcoming months.

TrackX will also continue to expand and leverage its partner network. Partners not only provide implementation resources to meet increased demand, but they also have access to large potential customer bases.  Over the past quarter, relationships with Amazon Web Services, Barcodes, Impinj and Barcoding have resulted in numerous enterprise opportunities. As the Company converts these opportunities into customer implementations, the Company anticipates continued growth in higher margin recurring SaaS revenue as a percentage of total revenue.
