Keith Neilson, CEO of Craneware commented:

“Overall Group revenue reported in the year was marginally ahead of that of last year, masking the steady growth through the year in sales to individual hospitals, which was very encouraging and a reflection of the more stable trading environment. The strengthening of sales activity has continued and trading in the first few months of the new financial year has been healthy. With a product suite that addresses many of the fundamental financial issues besetting healthcare providers in the US, an invigorated sales team and a more stable trading environment, we are confident Craneware has the platform to deliver increased shareholder value in the years ahead.”
