Gordon McArthur, CEO said: “Momentum has continued into the second half of the year.
“The business has grown considerably over the last six months, in terms of offering and customer base but also in addressable market, due to the successes we have had in new areas of the financial services market.
“These factors combined with the continued growth in our committed recurring revenues and size of our new business pipeline, provide us with confidence in our continued success.”
