Management Commentary "With strong bookings and a healthy backlog we are reaffirming our guidance for 2012. While the timing of specific contracts impacted our quarterly revenues, we are satisfied with our operational performance in a quarter which sometimes tends to be slower in our business," commented Dr. Moshe BenBassat, ClickSoftware's Chairman and CEO. "Growth opportunities in the workforce management and enterprise mobility markets remain strong, and we continue to invest for future growth. While the impact of increased research and development and sales and marketing expenses will tighten margins in the short-term, we believe they will position us to better meet market demand with competitive solutions in the cloud and mobility markets." "Operationally, the launch of the ClickAppStore last month has further positioned us to capitalize on the rapid growth being seen in the enterprise mobility market. The initial response to our go-to-market strategy, which provides pre-bundled starter packages that can be further expanded by downloading additional Apps, has been well received. We will further enhance our product suite by offering a wider range of starter packages that appeal to specific market segments and deliver an easy to use mobile solution that can be configured by the customer to meet their needs," Dr. BenBassat concluded.
