Vancouver, BC – Venzee Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: VENZ) (the “Corporation” or “Venzee”), has added additional revenue-generating retail channels to its platform – outpacing internal growth targets and meeting client demand for digital integration across the valuable “last-mile” of global retail.
According to Venzee CEO John Abrams, “We completed our pivot to a partner-driven selling model in the first half of the year and immediately began to see higher client demand for retail channels. Because Venzee generates revenue through retail channels available on its platform, our ability to quickly satisfy channel demand from clients ensures we remain on pace to meet our revenue goals for the back-half of 2020.”
In July, the Company began monthly reporting metrics indicating the number of revenue-generating retail channels available to clients through its SaaS Platform.
In addition, the Company began to indicate “Pipeline Velocity” – the speed at which it is able to make available new retail channels from which it derives revenue, attracts new clients, and generates retailer engagement.
In its August report, the Company again indicates strong growth of its key metrics with rapid Retail Channel growth indicating good operational improvement and continued client demand.
Retail Channel Availability – Monthly Metrics
- July Retail Channel Availability – the number of unique retail channels available to clients using the Venzee platform solution – was 178.
- Between July 15 and August 15, the Company added 63 additional Retail Channels to its platform – a 25% improvement over the previous month – indicating improved operational efficiency when it comes to adding revenue-generating channels to its platform.
- On August 15, Retail Channels Available through the Company’s platform totaled 263 or 87% of the Company’s 2020 year-end operational goal for available channels.
Peter Montross, EVP Commercial Operations for Venzee, said, “Because our clients face growing pressure to deliver more digital information to more retailers, our ability to rapidly add revenue-generating retail channels to our platform directly ties to our revenue growth. I am very pleased with how quickly our operations team has responded to client demand for more channels in support of our revenue goals.”
The Venzee Retail Solution bridges the data gap between brands and their retailers.
