Venzee strongly positioned to achieve annual sales and revenue objectives with more than 790 Mesh Connectors™ sold and a 40% quarterly increase in active pipeline sales opportunities
Vancouver, BC – Venzee Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: VENZ | OTCQB: VENZF) (“Venzee” or the “Company“), the leading artificial intelligence (AI) platform for product data, is pleased to announce that the Company exceeded quarterly Key Performance Indicator (KPI) targets for the second quarter of 2021.
Entering 2021, the Company published a set of KPIs to indicate overall performance improvement in critical operational areas. As a Software as a Service platform, the Company tracks and communicates customer churn, available retail channels, pipeline expansion, revenue growth, and sold Mesh Connectors™, which Venzee sells to clients to automate and accelerate the transfer of product data from brands to retailers.
For the second consecutive quarter, the Company exceeded all of its KPI targets and, according to COO Peter Montross, the Company is, “on track to achieve its ambitious goal of more than 2,000 sold Mesh Connectors™ and $195,000 in monthly recurring revenue by the end of 2021 — in line with an approximate 6-month lag in revenue recognition following the Company’s SaaS-based monthly-recurring revenue model.”
Overall, Venzee continues to exceed all of its quarterly KPI targets. The Company sold more than 790 Mesh Connectors™ as of the end of Q2 2021, a 17% increase from the 675 Mesh Connectors™ sold as of the end of Q1 2021.
Churn, or the number of clients that have discontinued use of the platform, remains at zero.
Sales pipeline growth remains strong with more than 7,000 active sales opportunities — a 40% increase from the end of Q2 2021. As a competitive advantage, Venzee continues to expand the number of retail channels available to clients, increasing its inventory from 405 retail channels in Q1 to 412 available retail channels in Q2.
“Venzee’s rapid growth this quarter positioned us to once again exceed quarterly KPI targets and keep the Company on track against our aggressive year-end goal of 2,000 sold Mesh Connectors™,” said John Sexton Abrams, CEO of Venzee Technologies. “Venzee is gaining undeniable traction in the market and clients continue to see positive results after implementing our advanced technology platform. We anticipate strong additional growth in our sales pipeline across all our target personas, which bodes well for achieving our 2021 goals. We will continue to deploy the necessary resources to ensure Company growth targets are met or exceeded.”
