Transformation to SaaS
Pros
  • Prodware's business development is based on Microsoft software, essentially. Prodware benefits from its demanding ‘Microsoft Gold Certified partner’ status and is a member of the Microsoft Dynamics Inner Circle
  • The differentiation between Prodware and most traditional software vendors lies in the editing of specific solutions dedicated to a selective number of sectors (retail, manufacturing, professional services, financial services)
  • Prodware is involved in a business transformation to SaaS with the expansion of Microsoft Dynamics 365 online. The advantage of SaaS is higher recurring and predictable revenue in the future
Cons
  • The switch of software licences to software subscriptions revenue and the need of investments in the business weigh on both growth and margin over the transformation phase
  • The SaaS model could facilitate the emergence of new small-sized and agile competitors and, consequently, force price pressure and lower margins for traditional software editors and their vendors
  • Restated from the significant impact of the research tax credits, net of fees (€+10.7m in 2017), the group posts a low operating margin (<5% of revenue)
