Management Commentary "We are pleased with the strong results for the third quarter. Significant operational progress, healthy bookings and a strong pipeline of new business provide us with confidence in our strategy and good visibility moving forward. Specifically, investments to address increased market demand in the workforce management market by enhancing our Mobility, Shift Planning and Cloud offerings are paying off. We are seeing traction in new verticals while successful deployments in traditional industries such as Telecommunication and Utilities continue to support our value proposition and highlight the strength of our market position. Growing market demand in the Americas - including Latin America - and Russia have more than offset any weakness we've seen in Europe. Our market position has again been supported by industry analysts and independent market research. For the second year in a row, we were ranked as Leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Field Service Management report and we continue to drive the workforce management and enterprise mobility market from a leadership position," said Dr. Moshe BenBassat, ClickSoftware's Chairman and CEO. "As we look forward to the fourth quarter and beyond, we will continue to differentiate ourselves through innovative product offerings that allow service providers to better optimize their workforce and reduce inefficiencies. As our investments continue to bear fruit, we look forward to taking the company to the next level by potentially reaching, then surpassing, the $100 million sales mark," Dr. BenBassat concluded. Outlook The Company reiterates the previously provided full year 2012 guidance of revenues in the range of $98 to $103 million, representing about 13% to 18% growth over 2011.
