"Bridgeline is winning new customers at its fastest rate ever, averaging more than 15 new logos per year, in addition to sales into our existing customer base, and the rate of wins is continuing to accelerate," said Ari Kahn, Bridgeline's President and Chief Executive Officer.

New sales have a higher ratio of SaaS licenses to professional services and we expect our revenue mix to be increasingly weighted towards licenses."
