“Feedback from our customers, prospective customers and the customers of our channel partners is extremely positive and we are beginning to see acceptance in many large international markets as well as the U.S. They all benefit from the additional functionality and security of the hopTo Work platform with the new MAX feature set that we launched in the first quarter of this year and now includes availability on iPhone and Android devices.”
“Additionally, our sales team continues to work around-the-clock with our GO-Global channel partners. This has not only resulted in sales for hopTo Work, but also has increased sales for our GO-Global product. This bodes well for the future of our multi-product revenue stream and supports our distribution and sales strategy to work both with existing sales relationships while building a new customer base in the ramp-up period for hopTo Work.”
