SALT LAKE CITY, May 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OMNIQ Corp. (NASDAQ: OMQS) (“OMNIQ” or “the Company”), a provider of Supply Chain and Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based solutions, today announced its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2021.
OMNIQ’s 2022 continuous momentum:
Shai Lustgarten, CEO of omniQ commented: “We are experiencing a great start of 2022. Our focus remains on Q Shield’s deployments in the Public Safety sector, growing sales of omniQ’s AI Parking Solutions, increasing sales of omniQ’s Supply Chain automation products, in parallel to making our financial infrastructure stronger. We are facing increased demand for our products in multiple verticals and markets.
Our mission is to improve efficiencies, help to secure public safety and enable better quality of life for people using our systems. Our customer base includes some of the most demanding customers in the world, including Governments, Hospitals, Major Supermarket chains, Security agencies and Municipalities among others.
Following the success of the first installations of our Q Shield turnkey AI based systems we continued our focus on indirect sales channels, partnering with VAR’s (Value Added Resellers). We recently signed agreement with a reputable VAR whom we believe will accelerate the sales of Q Shield that we consider as an important growth engine with an endless market potential.
In addition to the strong revenue and gross profit in our Q1 results we note improvement in all financial parameters. These efforts will continue to be in our focus for further improvements in the near future.
Achieving trailing six months sales of over $51M, resulting into annual revenue run rate of $102M we feel stronger and confident while fulfilling our plan to elevate OMNIQ to new spheres.” Concluded Mr. Lustgarten.
