Annual revenue increased globally by 17% year-over-year, with Yorktel's Telehealth vertical growing 77% and EMEA region spiking 50% compared to 2013. Also of note, is that 50% of the company's revenue is now generated from recurring managed services contracts.
"Last year, we announced that Yorktel would be focusing more on the enterprise, in response to a global demand for applications specific to vertical markets such as healthcare and financial services," said Ron Gaboury, Yorktel CEO. "I am proud to say that this strategy is working, as these numbers clearly indicate.
"This success reflects our team's ability to adapt, overcome and enthusiastically attack new challenges with tenacity and vigor."
Other milestone achievements in 2014 include Yorktel's acquisition of MultiSense and Expedite VCS, securing ISO 27001 Certification, opening new offices in France and North Carolina, and welcoming seasoned industry leaders like Pete McLain and John Tisdale, who assumed the roles of Vice President for Enterprise Telehealth, and Senior Program Manager, Public Sector, respectively.
