MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 07/29/14 -- Alphinat Inc. (TSX VENTURE: NPA) announces a profit for the quarter ended May 31, 2014.
During the quarter under review, Alphinat continued to focus its efforts on nurturing and expanding its distribution channels and on diversifying its geographic and industry sector presence.
Alphinat has continued to make strong headway into partnerships for enterprise license sales and delivery, for OEM agreements, as well as for launching SaaS services.
One of the discussions initiated during the period under review has lead to the announcement on June 26, 2014 of a reseller agreement with Unisys Corporation for the commercialization of Alphinat's SmartGuide® and SmartGuide® PaaS Edition software. The Company is pleased to be working with Unisys and their team of experts with deep deployment know-how and innovative solution implementations. This agreement underlines Alphinat's commitment to work closely with our partners and help them provide productivity solutions that are Cloud and mobile ready.
Other reseller and OEM agreements are currently in discussion in North America and in Europe.
We continue to see uptake in sales, with a growing number of installed clients in various geographies and industry sectors. Furthermore, during the period under review, Alphinat has been involved in the implementation of SmartGuide with clients in various vertical markets.
In Europe, Alphinat is delivering SaaS-based intranet and extranet solutions based on SmartGuide for a large private sector organization.
Alphinat is also currently delivering an airport security reporting solution for a major North American airport operator.
During the quarter under review, Alphinat has seen OEM sales by partner CSDC continue to progress with the addition of clients in the USA and in Canada. During the same period, a large municipality in France ordered additional SmartGuide licenses. SaaS sales by partner Vicrea in the Netherlands have also continued to increase at a steady pace. Alphinat is proud to announce that through its partners and direct sales, that SmartGuide is now being used by 17 municipalities in North America and Europe.
During the quarter under review, France's SGMAP organization (Secretariat General de Modernisation de l'Appareil Public), the leading agency of the government of France for State Modernisation, has purchased additional licenses of SmartGuide to deliver citizen-centric e-government services.
Alphinat intends to pursue its partnership strategy with consulting firms and systems integrators for resale and delivery of SmartGuide, with independent software vendors for OEM agreements and with other partners for the launch of SaaS services. Management believes that these agreements will help reduce the sales cycle of the company's products while giving it exposure to a greater number of potential clients.
Profit before financing expenses and amortization amount to $ 38,674 for the quarter ended May 31, 2014 compared to $36,853 for the corresponding quarter in 2013. The profit for the 3-month period ended May 31, 2014 amounts to $4,626 or $0.0001 per outstanding common share compared to a profit of $5,056 or $0.0001 per outstanding common share for the corresponding quarter in 2013.

In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
