In the public sector, the French State Modernization Agency (DGME) has continued to expand their citizen-centric service deployment and have ordered additional licenses from Alphinat in order to do so.
Alphinat has also pursued Cloud computing validations with major players in the industry in the USA as well as in Europe. The company is progressing in discussions with global partners for strategic initiatives that could lead to global distribution and sales.

Furthermore, Alphinat has made strong headway into partnerships for specific vertical markets with companies that have an established and captive client base. Management believe that these partnerships will reduce the SmartGuide sales cycle while multiplying points of contacts with potential clients.
For the quarter under review, the company recorded revenue and deferred revenue for a total amount of $471,208 (Revenue: $209,388 and Deferred revenue: $261,820).
For the 3-month period ended February 29, 2012, the Company recorded total revenue of $209,388 compared to $99,544 for the same period in 2011.

Operating expenses decreased from $269,343 for the 3-month period ended February 28, 2011 to $255,175 for the 3-month period ended February 29, 2012. This variation is due mainly to the decrease in stock-based compensations.

At Alphinat, we are driven by the passion to make application development easy for everyone. It always struck us as odd that the people with the vision of how a finished application should look and behave would only be involved at the start of the process. After all, what better way to ensure a favourable outcome than to provide those closest to an application’s end-users with a vested interest in its success throughout its development?
That’s why we bring you new ways to empower the right people at the right time in the application development process. At the same time, we’re constantly working to reduce the need to code in order to make application development and maintenance simpler and less error-prone.
So whether you choose to develop your applications with the help of our low-code platform SmartGuide®, kickstart your project using one of our pre-built apps or engage us or one of our partners to do the work for you, we’re here to help you deploy better applications in record time. Visit http://www.alphinat.com for more information. We look forward to hearing from you.
