Commenting on the results, intelliHR managing director Robert Bromage said:
Over 40% of our subscribers are now located outside Australia and we have entered a new phase in our revenue generation with three international enterprise customers added in 1H21. This increased average customer headcount by 45%.
intelliHR’s recent continued Enterprise success has established its credibility as having a strongly differentiated people management solution capable of competing with leading industry incumbents.
Looking ahead, Bromage added:
With multi-language support to be added to the platform in the coming weeks, our plan is to target Europe with expectations of market entry later this year, significantly increasing our addressable market.
