The Pointerra Ltd (ASX: 3DP) share price is struggling on Friday after the company released a sales update for the September quarter.

Third quarter highlights

Pointerra recapped a strong September quarter following the addition of new customers and increased spending from existing customers across key target sectors.

The company reported a September quarter annual contract value (ACV) of US$1.9 million, or a 19% increase against the June quarter. Total ACV as at 29 October now sits at US$11.7 million.

Pointerra was pleased to highlight a step change in its sales mix from being dominated by the US utilities and mapping sectors to a broader adoption across most target sectors. The target sectors being Survey & Mapping, Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industries, utilities, oil & gas, transport as well as mining across the United States and Australia.

The company believes this also reflects its investment in new business development and sales resources, focused outside of utilities and mapping sectors.

Pointerra noted that its quarter-on-quarter cash receipts might vary as customers are onboarded with different payment cycles including multi-year in advance agreements.
