FRIENDSWOOD, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 04/01/14 -- Data Call Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: DCLT) (the "Company" or "Data Call"), is proud to announce its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2013. The Company has been recognized as an industry pioneer since the earlier part of this decade, aggregating and providing fresh, updated news and information (infotainment) feeds including items such as in-game sports scores, weather and traffic information, as well as headline/financial news and information in products custom tailored for the Digital Signage space.
The Company reported record revenues of $630,395 for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to revenue of $556,363 for the year ended December 31, 2012, an increase in sales revenue of $74,032 from the prior year or 13.3%.
The Company's total operating expenses increased to $675,453 for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to total operating expenses of $426,423 for the year ended December 31, 2012, an increase in expenses of $249,030 or 58.4% from the prior year. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to the non-cash expense items related to the issuance of shares of common stock and the grant of options to its officers, directors and employees of $251,760, the conversion of a promissory in the amount of $50,000 and non-reoccurring payments to former officers and directors of $40,800, the later of which directly impacted the P&L.
While the Company reported a net loss of $(220,169) for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to a net profit of $8,395 for the year ended December 31, 2012, the Company, in fact, had a net profit from operations of $122,391. Net profit from operations is calculated by taking the net loss ($220,169) and adding back the non-cash items of $301,760 and the non-reoccurring cash expenses of $40,800 in payments to the departed officers and directors.
The Company cannot predict with any certainty future results. However, with the planned 2014 introduction of new signage products, the company anticipates that revenue could increase by approximately $75,000 in 2014 and by an additional $100,000 in 2015. In addition, the new product line, currently projected for release in the 2ndqtr of 2014, may be expected to increase sales revenues by an additional $25,000 to $50,000 in 2014. The Company reasonably expects to experience a material improvement in profitability from operations in 2014.
The Company's leadership team is keenly aware of the developments and trends in the digital signage industry and is attuned to the steps that the Company must take to continue to improve its competitive position. Tim Vance, the Company's CEO, stated that "Data Call has been successful in establishing working relationships with the top digital signage companies in the industry, specializing in providing these industry drivers with over 70 different infotainment products. We have had an outstanding year in 2013 by building new relationships and developing new products. Strength has been found under the new management team assembled and the improved culture adopted in early 2013. We are pleased that our digital signage products are being consumed in numerous venues through direct sales and VAR distribution."
Mr. Vance further stated that, "Content creation for the digital signage industry in North America is estimated to be a $3.5 billion segment of this business according to industry leaders. We at Data Call understand our niche and remain focused yet readily adopt new strategies to remain ahead of our competition. We continue to aggressively pursue both domestic and international accounts through our software agnostic offering of Location Specific, Dynamic infotainment content. As 2013 progressed, client demands for more specialized content was requested and more content was produced. Traffic and Weather products were completely re-worked, providing our clients with stunning pinpoint and precise location specific presentations. In tandem, we have also redesigned our website to enhance the presentation of our new product launches and provide more robust product detail."

The complexity of today's applications have gone far and beyond the capabilities of "traditional" system-level monitoring tools and approaches and requires much broader knowledge of business and applications as a whole. The goal of DevOps is to connect all aspects of app...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
