What else did intelliHR say today

intelliHR says major customer acquisitions in the US have contributed to 50% of its subscriber growth in the first half.

The company pointed to the acquisition of a leading sales solutions provider OSL Retail Services as especially significant. That account has provided intelliHR with a 2- year contract with a minimum commitment of $335,000. Further subscriber growth and upgrade to premium plans are expected. 

Subscriber numbers on its platform have increased 148% year-on-year, and doubled in first 5 months of FY21 with a total of 28,779 subscribers.

As a result, the company’s contractual annual recurring revenue (ARR) increased to $2.8 million, which it expects to grow even further in this half. This represents a new record ARR acquisition for the company, which is up 159% year-on-year from H1 FY20.

Commenting on the achievements, intelliHR managing director Rob Bromage said:

intelliHR has always been built to be a global HR platform, and our ambition from the outset was to build a global business. It is tremendous validation of our team’s commitment to this vision that approximately 40% of our subscribers are now located outside Australia, and that 4 enterprise customers from across the globe have been added in the last 6 months alone.
