Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - November 29, 2018) - BeWhere Holdings Inc. (TSXV: BEW) (OTCQB: BEWFF) ("BeWhere" or the "Company"), an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) provider of asset tracking and connected sensors solutions, is pleased to announce its financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2018.
Owen Moore, CEO and Co-Founder, stated, "We are very pleased with the results of our new M-IoT solutions. To date, the Company has signed agreements or received purchase orders in excess of 53,000 units in North America since the launch; which generates both one-time and recurring revenues. These purchase orders encompass repeat orders from existing channels and new distribution partners. Additionally, we look forward to expanding the offering into the European market in the coming months".
Chris Panczuk, COO and Co-Founder, stated, "The Company, in its first full quarter since the launch of its new M-IoT solutions, had some cost over-runs related to meeting deadlines for some shipments; which had a minor impact of gross profit. BeWhere has now increased visibility into its pipe-line which enables volume purchases with component suppliers and should result in improved margins. Moreover, the hardware sales drive recurring revenue growth, as devices are deployed in the field, and should have a positive impact on margins going forward."
