Dubber buoyant with record contracts growth: report


Australian-listed call recording platform provider Dubber has reported record growth in contracts for services with telecommunications service providers in the final quarter of the 2018 financial year.

Releasing its 2018 investor report on Wednesday, Dubber (ASX:DUB) said 19 new service providers had agreed to take the Dubber Platform during the quarter – compared to 38 existing agreements secured over a 30-month period.

In addition to growing its global footprint Dubber said it also continued to focus on its strategy of driving end user growth and associated revenues through its existing accounts.

Dubber’s report for the period ended 30 September reveals the company has 44,420 users, representing 51% growth on the previous quarter and 333% growth on the previous year’s corresponding quarter – September 2017.
