Randy Fowlie, President and CEO of RDM, stated: "We are pleased with the solid growth in Payment Processing Services revenue. However, the business climate in the U.S. continues to be difficult and revenues from Digital Imaging products were slightly behind expectations. That said, overall revenues were up compared to last year and we saw a significant improvement in the gross margin for both product lines, coming in at 67% and 40% respectively, as compared to 51% and 37% respectively for the same period last year." "With well over a thousand end user seats added in the quarter to our ITMS network, the product mix continues to shift towards our higher margin business and is a strong driver of profitability. In addition, we added two new financial institutions this past quarter. Later in the year, we will launch an upgrade of our hardware, which should further strengthen RDM's position in the POS scanner field."
