In third-quarter fiscal 2020, subscription revenues of $29.3 million (71% of total revenues) increased 10% year over year, driven by strong go-to-market execution and new logo additions. In the quarter, a leading medtech company selected Model N’s Global Tender Management solution to ramp up its tendering process in 14 countries.
At present, Model N manages client revenues worth billions across 120 countries. It has also bagged deals from some of the biggest names in tech and pharma verticals like Microchip Technology MCHP, ON Semiconductor ON, Johnson & Johnson and Novartis.
Coronavirus crisis-triggered sluggish spending across small and medium businesses owing to restricted economic activity, and weak job market are likely to exert pressure on adoption of Model N’s revenue management software solutions in the foreseeable future.
Moreover, increasing expenses on enhancing Revenue Cloud, amid stiff competition from Oracle’s ORCL Revenue Management and Billing Cloud services, and Workday Revenue Management is likely to impede margins, at least in the near term.
