Sydney-based Cloud provider, Bulletproof (ASX:BPF), has advised the market that professional services revenues have been flat toward the end of the last half of the financial year.

The company released its FY16 results guidance and trading update which shows full year revenues are expected to be in line with expectations at $47 million, a 67 per cent increase on FY15.

Recurring revenue sources are expected to contribute approximately 80 per cent of total revenue.

The company said revenue from services and consulting were strong in the first half of the year but cited “Weaker than usual seasonal behaviour” and project delays in New Zealand as causes for the flat revenue in the last half of the of FY16.

Bulletproof acquired New Zealand-based Cloud Provider, Cloud House, in February 2016 to expand its New Zealand operations.

This financial year has also seen the company invest in application product development but revenue from these is only at a trickle and had not met expectations. These revenues are expected to gain momentum in the next financial year.

The company said that during the period of of lower activity and revenue, utilisation levels of the professional services engineering team dropped and this impacted profit.

However, the company added it had significant customer wins in the same period and this would see revenue increase in the first part of FY17.

The company has positive cash flow, reporting $4.6 million in the bank.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
