Revenue (excl. EU projects)
Revenue grew with € 347k or 3,6% to € 9.842k (H1 2015: € 9.495k), including a currency effect of € 250k. SaaS revenue grew with € 327k or 7,2% to € 4.812k (H1 2015: € 4.485k), including a currency effect of € 99k. Consultancy revenue grew with € 69k or 2,2% to € 3.202k (H1 2015: € 3.133k), including a currency effect of € 48k.
The following highlights the developments in our four business lines:
Business Integration: we continue to see a strong demand for our offering particularly in the Netherlands and in the US. Conversion of existing license based customers into our SaaS offering drives our growth rate beyond market growth rate in the Netherlands. In the first six months, our Business Integration revenue increased with 22,5% to € 5.502k (H1 2015: € 4.490k), fuelled by 48% higher consultancy revenue at € 1.306k (H1 2015: 881k) and 41,5% higher SaaS revenue at € 2.411k (H1 2015: € 1.703k).
E-commerce: our E-commerce proposition delivers webshop back-end solutions with full back office integrations. Our customers are typically large telecommunications companies such T-Mobile. In the first half year KPN decided to consolidate certain of its labels as a result of which TIE Kinetix lost KPN-Hi and KPN-Telfort as a customer. Our E-commerce revenue declined with 49,4% to € 889k (H1 2015: € 1.756k).
Demand Generation: in the US we experience a reduction in customer win rate as the competition seems better positioned to engage in bespoke development. New implementations in Europe are the fundament under growth of our Demand Generation business. In the first six months, our Demand Generation revenue increased with 5,9% to € 2.230k (H1 2015 € 2.105k).
Business Analytics: in order to stimulate customers moving to cloud based solutions, Google has suspended the availability of the Google Search Appliance in the license model. Even though this has slowed down the growth of our Analytics business, we are still able to book a 30,9% growth to € 1.807k (H1 2015: € 1.380k).
Jan Sundelin (CEO) said: “We are happy to see growth numbers of our SaaS revenue, replacing the loss of customer KPN at the end of FY 2015. With the EC matters contained we have been able to focus on improving our operations and focusing on our core business: delivering excellent SaaS propositions in the supply chain. We have focused our development team towards our new product FLOW, launched at our AGM end of March. With FLOW, TIE Kinetix will be able to bring together the functionality from all its business lines and platforms into one single offering. We expect significant upsell and cross sell opportunities in our current customer base which today only consist of customers served with products from one single business line platform.”
