Contract wins

23 June 2014

RapidCloud International plc (AIM: RCI), the Southeast Asian based software solutions provider offering subscription services through all segments of cloud computing, announces two significant contract wins, the combined revenue value of which is in excess of £1 million. This revenue is expected to be recognised in the current financial year.

RapidCloud has won a material contract with the national legislature of a country in Southeast Asia. The contract is to assist in the development of a cloud management system which can rapidly process vast amounts of legislation data while providing members of the legislature easy access to required information such as documents, video, profiles and events through a single secure interface. The core of the integrated legislation management system is being built on RapidCloud’s in-house developed solutions, RapidSearch and PortalWeb.

Launched in May of this year, RapidSearch is RapidCloud’s ‘big data’ solution offering comprehensive reporting and data analysis of both structured and unstructured data. PortalWeb is RapidCloud’s web portal building solution enabling the unified presentation of diverse information feeds.

RapidCloud has additionally won a contract with a separate government owned institution in Southeast Asia to deploy its recently launched cloud-based application programming interface, RapidAPI.

RapidAPI gateway solution streamlines the management and operation of applications whilst at the same time enhancing security and regulatory compliance. The solution is ideal for organisations that are exposed to management and security challenges, such as Governments, Telcos, Internet Service Providers and large-scale enterprises, given the existence of the large and diverse number of applications running within their network.

Raymond Chee, Managing Director of RapidCloud, commented: "We are delighted to announce these contract wins which demonstrate the success of our investment in developing new enterprise level products. Having only just launched RapidSearch and RapidAPI we are already gaining traction for the products which move us up the value chain and into important new markets such as the public sector.

"The combined revenue value of these contracts is significant and this therefore gives us considerable confidence for the current financial year.”
