ViryaNet Limited (OTC QB:VRYAF), a leading provider of software solutions that optimize and allow for the continuous improvement of service processes for mobile workforces, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.

First Quarter 2014 Highlights

  • Quarterly revenues of approximately $2.4 million represented a year-over-year decrease of 18.8% compared to approximately $2.9 million and a sequential decrease of 29.6% compared to approximately $3.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2013.
  • First quarter 2014 net loss of $379,000, or $0.09, in basic and diluted loss per share compared to net income of $243,000, or $0.06, in basic and diluted income per share in the same period of last year and to net income of $832,000, or $0.20 in basic and $0.19 in diluted income per share in the fourth quarter of 2013.
  • A significant increase in total pipeline value year over year (estimated to represent 50% pipeline growth).
  • Technology Evaluation Centers, a leading advocate for the enterprise software purchaser, spotlighted ViryaNet as a strong contender in the field service management market and how service organizations can take advantage of ViryaNet’s solution.

“Our business remains in good shape despite the lack of new licensing revenues in the first quarter,” stated Memy Ish-Shalom, President and Chief Executive Officer of ViryaNet. “Long and unpredictable sales cycles are typical in our business, and while we are not satisfied with our performance in the first quarter, we are increasingly confident in our long-term business model. We have seen significant growth in our deal pipeline, both in terms of the number of deals, as well as their aggregate value. The investments we have made into our business and the unique products and services that ViryaNet now offers should continue to drive our performance and enable us to reach our growth objectives this year and beyond.”

Mr. Ish-Shalom continued, “Industry demand remains robust and the level of interest in our cloud offerings from both new and existing customers continues to increase, affirming our confidence in ViryaNet’s competitive positioning and industry-leading solution. We are excited about the growth prospects we see on the horizon in the global workforce management space as well as the strong demand for the cloud-based offerings we launched at the end of 2013. Our investment in new products designed for smart devices, integrating a business value focus performance management practice into our offering and a cloud-based delivery option, in particular, is opening up access to new vertical markets for mobile workforce solutions, and creating opportunities for us to increase our recurring revenues, with customers of varying sizes. We expect to announce a cloud-based deployment for a large new customer managing hundreds of facilities in the very near term.”

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure.

Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
