Jack Abuhoff, CEO, said, "We're pleased to be reporting a strong growth quarter. As a result of strong first-half bookings and late-stage pipeline opportunities, we anticipate continuing to achieve 20% or more year over year growth in the remaining quarters of the year. Moreover, we expect growth to accelerate in the second half of 2021 over the first half of 2021 with continued acceleration in 2022 driven by expansions in business from new and recently-won customers and pipeline growth as our expanding salesforce becomes fully productive.

"Operationally, we are executing very well. We have reduced structural costs by $6 million since the end of 2019 and this quarter our incremental revenues provided 78% gross margin reflecting the operating leverage in our business, allowing us to aggressively invest internally generated cash flow in short payback sales and marketing as well as product enhancement initiatives that we anticipate will lead to continued growth.

"We believe we are proving to be an indispensable partner to organizations - from Silicon Valley big tech to Fortune 500s to venture-funded AI start-ups - which seek to embrace artificial intelligence to modernize or streamline processes or to deliver fundamentally new experiences. We believe that AI implementations will significantly increase over the next several years, providing us with an exciting strategic path."
