“In the third quarter of fiscal 2018 we were delighted to add another IDN to our client list as well as expand within our base of hospital networks as we signed additional contracts for point-of-use implementation within our customer base. In constant currency, revenue rose 2% in the quarter, and bookings were strong. We have continued to reduce operating expenses to enable more of our revenue to fall to the bottom line. Even before adjusting for currency, our operating expenses as a percent of revenue continue to drop and our YTD operating earnings are up 32% or 53% after adjusting for currency swings,” said Peter Brereton, President and CEO of TECSYS Inc. “The pipeline looks good, our backlog remains strong, and the fourth quarter is off to a very strong start with the signing of a large new enterprise IDN contract and several base account projects.”
