Services revenue increased 66% for the six-month period ended December 31, 2004 versus the same period in 2003.
?Our web-based solution, NETtime® has continued to gain momentum as evidenced by the revenue growth of 97% over the same period last year. A large part of this growth results from our NETtime private branding and co-branding strategy. Even with recent investments in both hardware and software to support this growth at the AT&T data center which hosts NETtime, our hosting costs increased minimally over the prior year quarter, supporting the fact that the hosted model is both profitable and scalable.? added Bednarik.
?We continue to make significant investments in our sales and marketing programs and new product development. In the current quarter we doubled our spending in advertising and trade shows versus the prior year?s quarter. We also incurred significant development costs on our new proprietary hardware device that we plan to deliver in fiscal Q4. We anticipate that we will experience an increase in our gross margin of 5% to7% after we deliver this new device in quantity to the market.?
?Our enterprise sales team secured the following key customers in fiscal Q2; Case Foods, Boston University, U.S. Navy ? Crane, Davenport Realty Trust and Olshan Hotels,? continued Bednarik.
