"We are very happy with the large growth we delivered in Q2" said Steve Levely, chief executive officer at Ackroo. "The second quarter is traditionally a slower revenue quarter for the Company from a seasonality perspective so to see us deliver one of our best year over year growth quarters is an exciting accomplishment. We put great focus on cross selling products and services to our customer base while also working with our current and new channel partners to add more merchants onto our platform. These two initiatives drove significant organic growth for the Company which we plan to keep leveraging into future quarters. The Company also made significant advancements in our product by developing key mobile functions from the knowledge gained from the recent acquisition of D1 Mobile's Appetite platform. These enhancements not only will assist Ackroo in further differentiating and staying relevant in the ever changing payment ecosystem, they will also drive increased revenues for the Company by adding additional products and services we can sell to our growing customer base. We are very happy with our accomplishments during the quarter and we look forward to a very exciting second half of the year."
