(AUSTIN, TEXAS, Aug 13, 2019) – GTY Technology Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: GTYH) (“GTY”), a leading provider of SaaS/Cloud solutions for the public sector, reports that their subsidiary, Bonfire Interactive Ltd. (“Bonfire”), achieved a record-breaking number of new clients for second quarter of FY2019.
“Bonfire’s Q2 client acquisitions include a range of public agencies, from notable local governments to transportation authorities,” said Stephen Rohleder, President, CEO and Chairman of GTY. “These new clients have embraced Bonfire’s distinct offering, through the Company’s recently launched industry-specific procurement packages, and helped deliver Bonfire’s most successful quarter.”
GTY’s Bonfire has experienced a three-year revenue growth rate of 1,112% and a client retention rate of 98%. The total addressable market for Bonfire alone is an estimated $3 Billion in North America, providing opportunity to continue on the exponential growth path the Company has experienced to date.
“The majority of Bonfire prospects make up a greenfield market. Most are moving off of legacy bidding portals, Excel, and even paper - so it’s exciting to announce new client wins like this to demonstrate the transformative leadership emerging in the field,” said Corry Flatt, CEO at Bonfire.
Bonfire represents the e-procurement function within the GTY family of software as a service (SaaS) companies. The 32 client acquisitions for Bonfire in Q2 FY2019 include 2 large state agencies (State of Illinois and the Delaware Department of Transportation), 11 municipalities (including City of Cincinnati and City of Seattle), 10 educational institutions, and 9 Special Districts/Commercial clients (including Greater Toronto Airport Authority and Cancer Treatment Centers of America).
