Contakt World Technologies Corp. (CSE: HELP) (OTC Pink: TLOOF) (FSE: B2I0) (the "Company", "Contakt" or "Contakt World"), a SaaS company committed to delivering a diverse suite of subscription based software solutions for healthcare and other industries, is pleased to provide a general corporate update for its shareholders.
Contakt's COVID Compliance Solution, Stratum Health ("HealthCheck"), has seen significant growth in new customers and renewals over the past 90 days, primarily driven by the recent surge of COVID-19 Omicron variant globally. HealthCheck has added nearly 20 new enterprise clients since October, and new sales continue to growth month over month. Many of HealthCheck's largest clients, including Atlanta County Public Schools, with close to 50,000 users (students and school staff), have extended or renewed their annual contracts, continuing to drive revenue.
HealthCheck generated over $1.35 million CAD in revenue in calendar 2021 (figures unaudited). Contakt expects HealthCheck to continue to grow in 2022, with inbound sales inquiries increasing due to vaccine mandates and surges of COVID-19. HealthCheck currently has over 800 clients and over 100,000 active users on its platform. HealthCheck has initiated a robust marketing campaign, targeting businesses, schools and non-profit organizations across multiple jurisdictions and, specifically, those in which vaccine mandates remain in effect.
Contakt is pleased to announce that it has released the 3.0 version of its HealthCheck App and admin dashboard, in response to market demand and feedback from existing and new customers. All HealthCheck customers now have access to the platform's new vaccine passport and COVID-19 test tracking features, in addition to our established HIPPA-compliant daily symptom screening check based on the CDC's most updated guidelines. Customers interested in these new features can contact the Company's customer support for training and activation. In addition to these new important upgrades, several security and improved functionality features were deployed.
As the Company enters 2022, Contakt is looking to drive growth by broadening its product portfolio through acquisition, partnerships, and joint ventures. The Company is also actively pursuing SaaS solutions that it can grow by leveraging its existing customer base. While the Company is putting a specific focus on "health-tech" solutions, it is also looking beyond to other rapidly growing industries, including the metaverse, and software leveraging enterprise blockchain technology, where it can achieve rapid growth.
"We have been very pleased with the growth of HealthCheck in 2021 and are looking forward to continued growth in 2022. The HealthCheck team continues to drive new sales and deliver new product functionality to address a market that continues to grow and evolve. While we hope that the COVID-19 pandemic will soon come to an end as the virus becomes endemic, we do expect HealthCheck to remain relevant for years to come as we expand our tracking and health record keeping capabilities to address new diseases," stated Zayn Kalyan, Chief Executive Officer of Contakt World. "Beyond HealthCheck, we are actively looking at a number of SaaS companies in healthcare and other industries where we believe that Company will be able to derive revenue and profit, with the ultimate goal of driving shareholder value," Mr. Kalyan further stated.
