TUCSON, Ariz., July 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AudioEye, Inc. (OTCQB: AEYE) ("AudioEye" or the "Company") today announced that it has increased its cash contract bookings outlook for 2017 to a range of $5.5 million to $6.5 million. The Company previously announced a range of $4.0 million to $6.0 million in cash contract bookings. This compares to cash contract bookings of $1.9 million for 2016.
Dr. Carr Bettis, Executive Chairman of AudioEye, stated, "Preliminary first half cash contract bookings stand in excess of $3.2 million, driven by rapidly expanding demand for our Digital Accessibility Platform and Ally Managed Service. We continue to see strong growth in new client bookings, a 99% renewal rate among existing subscription customers and further acceleration of inbound sales calls as companies increasingly turn to AudioEye for digital accessibility solutions. Perhaps most importantly, demand in our consumer and education verticals has begun to increase significantly, in addition to our strong positions in government, human resources and financial services, giving us further confidence in our rapidly expanding growth opportunities."
AudioEye previously announced that its qualified new business pipeline remains in excess of $6.4 million, compared to approximately $2.3 million as of the end of the second quarter of 2016.
Todd Bankofier, CEO of AudioEye, said, "Companies are increasingly turning to AudioEye's industry-leading technology driven solutions instead of the traditionally complex, time-consuming and expensive consulting solutions. As a result, we are seeing solid and increasing demand for our SaaS-based accessibility solutions. We provide not only the industry's fastest and most cost effective path to conformance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 AA standards, but also a documented business ROI opportunity through increased interaction with up to 15% of our customers' target audiences."
