spk_3: and with more than half of our customers adopting multiple have we know that more and more companies are realizing the unique advantage that comes from managing their entire front office in one platform
spk_4: a great example of that mockup approach in action is three odds a staffing agency that arranges assignments for travelling nurses across the us after connecting it back off assistance to our platform and implementing our marketing sales vms an operation have three odd has seen increased efficiency and performance across the company their email click through rate double their sales team capacity grew by sixty percent and they're not able to quickly mobilize for flu or covert vaccinations there is still plenty of runway left when it comes to going broad and deep with our hub and platform i'm really excited to see where the needs of our customers will pick up next our second strategic pillar is to strengthen our segmentation approach across product and put a market and this is driving product innovation at have thought into heat wave first we're bringing find features that that traditionally only been available to large enterprises downpour small and mid market customers and second we're bringing a human friendly product and purchasing experience traditionally been and small and mid market businesses up the large enterprises an inbound with your we focused on the latter half of that strategy announcing new powerful and easy be new features that add tremendous value to our enterprise year

spk_3: we've seen like momentum with are open beta as customers tap into the ability to quickly and easily start taking payments
spk_4: one early adopter and then pilot and operation consulting business that needed a scale operation but when being held back by a labor intensive payment system
spk_3: then pilot previous system could only brought of great pop transaction
spk_4: and required manual work to profit payments be are it would help for payment then pilot with able to accept a ph payments would eat the feel pain of able to focus more on lead generation activities and therefore have increased leave by thirty percent the early be back from customers like that barletta of evidence that we are on the right path and enabling or be to be customers to delaware a consumer grade buying experience i'm very excited about what the future hold for hotspot payment in the long term or for than final pillar is to continue to kill hotspot as your hard brian and our mystery before we want to build a company that future generations can be proud off as part of the vision we're investing in hiring and going diverse talent working on or environmental initiative and doubling down on protecting our customers' data and scaling or systems to meet their mean

spk_0: at this time i would like to remind everyone in order to ask a question press star than the number one on your telephone keeper will pause for a moment to come barbecue and a roster your first question comes from the line of alex zukin with both research mr you can you line is open
spk_6: the go with so much congratulations on a on a grid a quarter yummy live the person for you for to be on the demanded by or and you talked about what you saw in the order wrote you did you see any seasonality summer holiday you know week the internationally and then you know obviously in the news were hearing the headline to supply chain issues you hear the reports a the advertising companies you're having a little bit of the consternation are you seeing any impact from that at all and and and any commentary on kind of the pipe line of for for either new customer grow through existing customer expansion to cube or
spk_3: they are think what for the question we are seeing them headline and that you mention it doesn't look like him challenges macro environment but i'll bet a lot that a factor of than have outside or your to your it from plot are in terms of the demand environment and that
spk_4: manhattan it's really fallen and by step back and look at why we feel very good about that the man environment to think one of the world has changed in a in the thought of the pandemic of might have looked for digital pollution and the fire at occasionally have changed
spk_7: is significantly where they need gap and humor like by an inferior and they want to be able to collect their customers digitally and they want to be able to grow and accelerate growth in that environment arm and to do we have the perfect solution for that bot the very unique value proposition me crafted the pollution and we provide the do more like are you there experience with and to broker great feature man that is resonating really well in terms of the market so ah i feel very good about the demand environment than what we had been in the pipeline and the to collect bought a cropper north america bit north as will have international business though feeling pretty good
spk_6: got it and then of that that super helpful paid for you i your i think that what one of the questions i know i'm going to get tomorrow it for the last i don't know called six quarters or settle belief is that ahead of revenue growth in the quarter even on in the just the basis of from a christian perspective this quarter you'd you mentioned there were some headwinds on the the buildings that is important to take into account so many can you just walk through them particularly on the deferred side of what you're seeing and why did not necessarily indicative of your i mean it's usually not indicative but in this case for civically why wouldn't be indicative of kind of the way to think about future revenue growth because your guidance
spk_2: just again also very strong growth for queue for so scripture other
spk_8: dancer thing
spk_5: i would or by thing that we actually feel really good about delivering the current growth in the mid forward he has been when you look at that
spk_9: sort of tougher comparing them that we have here and you three relative kitchen to and basically twelve years and one more difficult and that i did mention thing that we're head when she didn't happening but you don't a quarter there's a little bit of a had my duration and you may
spk_8: i recall i might have been marked as i noted with a very vague filling or that also has a little bit of the head when as
spk_9: really compelling
spk_5: particularly around the earth avenue an effect on the third very tricky and you may recall and particular that the euro ah weekend against the dollar pretty dramatically a record for the kids read and through that impact on the of revenue from that back for much more and you there is about of
spk_9: four point advantage to the bird revenue
spk_5: i'm currently based earth isn't as important it
spk_2: got it got super helpful thank you guys regrets again
spk_10: operator
spk_0: you line up to morgan
spk_11: a mark marker you there
spk_12: yes yes i'm here three i'd i'd never heard my name called so i don't know if of connected for a moment
spk_13: but not the case
spk_12: mr mr morgan theory yes i'm flattered flutter to be called mr morgan however ya many abby at the analysts day you had you'd mentioned a toddler sale and i think the fact that most be to be companies haven't started yet i'm wondering how is that vision of the total sale aka resonating with your customers of who are in this open beta of of hotspot payments and and and will but what is their feedback to you so far
spk_4: yeah great great question mark to you know at the end of their what i said was that in terms of be to be there are two ways that companies typically towel one of the touch the fail and then the other is the repetition sell now in terms of postulate bell
spk_7: needed a company haven't just gotten started in on all online profit thing or services and popular and our our hypothesis is that we can really help them and enable new revenue for company now in the prepared the mark i mentioned that
spk_4: an example of a company that pilot they are in the consulting that know been wanted to talk profit thing and that's an example of a touch with they'll in terms of the open beta that all for where we're seeing in my poor thing we all companies that are in services that are thinking about you online revenue theme that haven't done it before and this is an easy and painless way for them to go ah if only day that we've been an open beta for a few weeks here are now but that definitely been into in terms of opening you got insane
spk_14: the will keep watching
spk_12: okay understood and as a quick for to our kids either we're noticing the growth is to curb sequentially that revenue growth is actually stronger than than pretty pandemic in a queue three so it's interesting to see did it did the growth of stronger without reliance upon a blowout number of of customer adds to i'm just curious where are you seeing the the sp increase most noticeably i your part of what i'm wondering is is custom objects unlocking some of the larger accounts it out at the top of your target range with the with the enterprise hubs of of of sales and marketing or is it more across the board or even more are kind of dumb market
spk_8: yeah i think that the question again you know and the because they did better or keep your eyes of come through addition than happen to be kind of came in exactly where we told you that they were going to we did see that night pick up and an arc is a ah
spk_7: really matt hi single digit range and again that momentum and and our pp as is a minute driven ah
spk_5: calculation the the company is moving toward that pro in enterprise
spk_8: and we you know again on hundred the dragon ball they selling commentary or three and both of those things are like key driver
spk_15: in a row
spk_16: excellent take you very much and crowds on a great result
spk_0: you next question comes from line of some odd seminar good jeffries your line is open
spk_17: hi good evening and i'll echo the congrats on just a great quarter and as that the cause get tougher sell very first ya money for you
spk_2: i have a hop on a payment side the ugly talk about the front office he i'm a price of started taking the payments and the advantages that house that has a other more entrenched back office detrick competitors that are more closely tied to a kind systems
spk_7: i thank them are that that that really like my favorite question about heyman because the way we think about hey man palmer part all
spk_4: prm is fundamentally different it is about enabling revenue growth for customers and is very very different from calmer as part of back off it were you a traditionally it is about talking to the pineapple either and focusing on collecting revenue off deficiency
spk_3: dan over the past few quarter as we'd have gone back to our customers and ask them how we can enable gold it became really clear that we needed to embed calmer and payments that part of the aram ah and there are three ways in which we can drive that grow third one is what i just talk about with
spk_4: march question with is enabling new revenue think if you think about partially this is not where the to be companies are have traditionally both it until we want to enable new revenue and provide opportunity for growth their the second area for growth is really helping with the rep a good luck
spk_7: last mile failed the what i mean by that if you don't have fought historically we have focused on going up there but the last mile which is what cash has been the hardest not to crack and we want to put that on that want to play line with quiet so that will that can now focus on broken
spk_3: initiative on the man generation activity and so they do that right we're going to actually enable go for customers and then the third thing that i'm super excited about a calmer when context to every customer interaction if you can imagine having a comment object deeply embedded within the aram you now have more information when you run marketing campaign you can run marketing campaign been abandoned car you have much more information in terms of their interaction with up you know whether in what them you have much better served with anthrax
spk_7: and because if prioritized by the purchase history though calmer deeply embedded the are i'm just really valuable in terms of enabling quote and so i think we're taking a very different approach and anything worthwhile afterward i'm excited about the longer term opportunity here
spk_17: very help on a maybe a follow up for for k they get mad at forty seven percent growth on constant currency staying the same quarter over quarter by the topic operas was impressive and getting one of these related to that is that this data round and eighty one percent increase in large skills
spk_2: in the third quarter an earlier because becoming talk about large feels more just you know which you is being adopted the i'm fears become a receptionist and how it should think about large yards and and higher defining it and and maybe just how should think about that going forward from a contributions and plan
spk_5: yeah i i i talk a little bit about the her and on a when we tried to highlight ah tricky pillar around pigmentation internal you look at what we call large field as anything that is greater than three k m r r m c in the the volume of them you have increased eighty one percent year over year
spk_17: okay okay great thanks again take my questions
spk_18: your next question comes from the line of can one with guggenheim securities your line is open great big thank you for take take my question i posed question i just wanted to get a sense for yeah i said earlier mention your of the advertising appear that there running into college occasionally she's with idea how do you see that potentially impacting of spots better that push customers more torque and inbound strategy with that see if you guys are going to get any tail and headwind on that front
spk_19: i think the the question can the did you step back you know the reagan we get into trouble contended our personal lives and given the dog is when we when we forget things like an anniversary the birthday really get fit into the dog out in a a privacy authentic world is when we remember and melting much and that i think would call them the reason that development here now having said that hotspot get it from the beginning of the of you noted has been around the idea of inbound marketing a very kind of consumer friendly privacy forward on approach and we can expect to that them profit be of our year to as development of happen in the industry that are going to moving private be bored they've been neutral a positive to applaud them for the recent development i don't think are any difference typically on of the app tracking that that happened recently the company make them packer the one that if you're running a lap and advertise your network where you're running a massive mobile application for we tracked me people are important and you can appeal get a direct impact of them the written written changes have quadrupled eatable category but we don't really expect any meaningful impact on our business that all of the police
spk_20: thing about the that are happening
spk_18: got it got it really that will appreciate that done as and and catered to think about the shape of a quarter are going to pass you get had mentioned that july have spotted were given given a break out the potential are higher than typical ppl any chance of kind of how that kind have a linear already he played out from from july
spk_17: through september and to the extent that you can comment on on october november and a how that took them to man meal like cycle that
spk_5: execute three that you're exactly right and have a great memory
spk_9: no we made a decision to give the organization a break at the very beginning of the corner and we had a global become crap for all of our employees and that are being played
spk_5: create a bit of a dark and a quarter at we feel great about where we landed a quarter but we definitely thought no them come in the second couple of month as a result of that are they well deserved break on behalf of are employed
spk_18: got it perfect i think that you so much
spk_0: your next question comes on the line and span slutsky with morgan stanley in line is open
spk_21: perfect on think is a much guys wanted to i touch on i'm on the parents business allen been i'm sure you getting a lot of questions from investors and that one arm hurry thinking as far as like disclosing the cracks in the you seen with i'm in that business as it starts to ramp i'm one of the milestones that we we should be looking for and you'll be looking for as far as he really just broadening out the initial set of customers that are involved in the in the beta program
spk_7: tampa into question i'm gonna maybe adapted from god to be to perspective and then i would have qaeda that in terms of how will be tracking i you know as you talk about of the and with day this is a long term opportunity that never there a very excited about and the typically we have targeted approach the target market that they're going after us company where that hundred employees or live that are need to be mostly focused on services software the reason we are focused on that market
spk_4: that allow them to build a delightful product experience the customers in love and even within that market we feed at the put a large market has a billion in gmb that them that segment and we want to start with that market and we're going to make sure that in terms of what the payment feature a pit bull a former teacher we'll focus gonna bring and driving market adoption and they thought longer term there is a significant opportunity for up to grow both upmarket domestically as well as international and i'll pass to keep those you can about your question on how we will talk and share all about
spk_22: yeah think that any
spk_9: at their if i take a step back and look at the
spk_5: the back cover or segment that yeah needed outlining the a customers with the hundred or less employees and that sort of be to be software and services pay their respects that we think that the hand the billions of dollars of he hadn't been a market for of and that one translate into something that looks more like hundreds of millions of potential payment and for all over the next couple of years and he died they are covered up that it'll end up going to earn a transaction fee
spk_9: on the payment volume and the amount of that transaction be going to depend on and than the payment method depend on the transaction by and we will recognize that he as revenue but
spk_7: they'll be united states being caught
spk_5: with that transaction most notably for credit card transactions that it that interchange a and there's a gross margin or the payment is going to be a good friend and lover gross margins on what we used on our side
spk_8: that said the building and then growing the business is also going to be very different than the court or visit them we feel really good about the overall murdered them for her but over time
spk_9: with respect to pay him
spk_5: we will likely in the near term accord any revenue under that what we call services and the other revenue stream and as we know ramp up over time we will have to evaluate when it is the appropriate time the point that revenue wow
spk_21: gotta go on and then he just wanted to go back to a billing for a quick second i think i'm he did great job of them outlining the the effects on material effects had went to billings at the end of the quarter versus the fx tailwind the way actions on revenue are but just under on the duration component buildings are you know if you're the kind of
spk_23: put together the
spk_2: the did the overall and ahead when you sign a quarter to billings between effects and duration which one was that was the more material one and ah you new kind of maybe give us some of that magnitude of what the building duration had when may have been swell
spk_5: yeah
spk_9: the electorate that attack had been doing over on a little was network to pretend headway i am not a combination as you as you are indicating of a tail and to revenue with a more extreme had went to the deferred revenue component of filling in terms of the relative the impact of duration bersin
spk_21: noted as bad as it is a combination of duration and the fact that that we have a higher but install torbay selling that sort of make up the other part of the difference between husband on the revenue configured people like
spk_0: got it that i thank you so much gosh congratulations record
spk_6: you next question comes from the line of brazil's with bank of america's security to your line is open oh great thanks guys are taking my question to graduation than a nice quarter or libya ask another question of the it's be ah
spk_2: a question another way
spk_6: with with the kind of growth you're seeing their that revenue attention has been accelerating now for several quarters the our customers landing with multiple have more so than in the path that the historically with a couple spot where a casserole start with marketing or sales or see that those are great entry points and then you'll see the cross sell a year or two later now the you kind of good the got marketed is more enterprise edition the you see customers can lead to multi hubs kind of the this away
spk_4: and bill maher more solid what does that mean for a future expansion opportunity potentially
spk_7: brad think for the question i say that we we we thing that happened across our customer base
spk_3: the first big what you said with in more multi bob and you can see that reflected in the numbers that kid share that the amulet day and we got me either multiple partners lan
spk_7: no not really good front door with marketing they'll pop your build pump and gotten really good over the past twelve to eighteen month and though they are very good front door and the when he got land and promotion and then as you know we launched the the arm we'd both
spk_4: at the bottom level as well as the goal level and go are also really good front door to and though across the board we're thing all emotion now i wrote they in turn off multi palm
spk_7: when our customers adopt more the cob the value that big yet because it the mean let you they're not be the are because if a little bit a model because they're in your the customer is much higher with the grand up money to doubt they'll have like marketing bob they get much more read that
spk_4: when they get had marketing have or felt that lawn a powerful combination with marketing pub and the at home or they'll public service pop and though i think what you're being a that there are great front door into adoption there is also a growing trying to work more the pop idol as need adoption the
spk_6: combination of all three are kind of what you get involved in terms of it or few people great to hear or germany so much that one of the service public library the other another view that service customer services more than a target or solution small boobs don't necessarily want to support dope getting a lot of the could be done with failed out you go but want you agree with that view of the to you guys are moving into this kind of upmarket because war enterprise focus could we expect rapid acceleration
spk_2: we bought a good strong results out of service or the potential even greater a charge their thank you yeah it from in trouble with a good option or injured on the lower and you don't think could lead you to get to larger and a private we begin to creeping number of customers want to provide online support even if it's not a author might be over email or trapped and the that he is directly a lead into distributed he the wouldn't doing really well
spk_19: and the path that we're going to progressing roughly similar to what you value on feel that google last several years which dirt and he features and that will it be born in build up front and back up an object with one of them and what be felt lockerbie bombing little over wifi adapter a grew up in believe the that hobby coming out
spk_9: onramp and front door to have of bought them we've been exactly what happened that night he just weekly largely the with him down the the beach or the customer portal were pressured can log in and peter ticket interact with their data and with their account of that would what a big dominate and i'm that good password have been preferable get ugly and a pitiful
spk_6: or down the path from your we need to be we think wait wait you will be an exciting your preferred without the market opportunity massive authors federal i wonder two thousand employees customers and here you for know what the customer leave there were absolutely that good
spk_0: where do your thanks or match
spk_2: you next question comes from the line of brian peterson with raymond james line is open
spk_6: the heart rate particular question i actually want to follow up the are ya many to us or brats question it and i'd be curious as to what extent customers are are really kind of understanding of what this new frontier go by particular date also i say that because or are they still let the point are you are the have the point now where they're willing you cannot buy that he gets or two but three or four hubs at once right war or are they seeing that digitally across all hobbes at all channels or is it or do they have the vision or they still going to have to gonna pick one at a time just given maybe they're limited ability to execute i'm curious what you're hearing from customers in go
spk_7: hard to this new frontier in terms of to join guess but the request question by and i think it across the board the level of maturity that our customer base are quite different the you have some customers that are pretty early and and at the you know they realize in the past couple of years you know that they need to be digital digital ready and they are kind of putting their toll and starting with one hop and then expanding and then there are optimized like the uk
spk_4: example that i gave him the prepared remarks about large where they realize that they need a complete digital front office platform that if all and one in order for them to be able to accelerate our goal
spk_7: given all of what they're seeing and so it really depends on the majority of the customers and the one thing that i would say is that our coach has been regulating really well with customers were taken a very very different approach to building have crafting our solution and a unique sort of my don't have to cobble together a bunch of different applications live in their fact that they can talk with one arm think
spk_6: org will all end but the crafted way in which we approach building products and therefore the value that our customers me in an awful need is really that nagging that the market great know that that that's good at your may maybe quick fabricate are your one of the boards take away from me the way our today with never protection job uttered can lead you to get it it that we're going to be the new normal going for like that the guy that right but of you curious how can we frame that in terms of the average revenue per customer trend i do with proper
spk_9: same gilbert law ah but which we think about that may be lagging the one can figure by a couple points of distrust of any greek through for be in our our that we should be looking at it from the the revenue per customer group that you
spk_24: yeah no thanks for the question i think that you are right
spk_5: ellen day i've shared a new target the level her net revenue attention at or above one hundred percent and what we talked about what the couple of different driver

spk_5: the started with improvement been caught our attention the other people die in that are upgrade are improving and we have and your birth that of a breed driver that are helping to increase the revenue were times when that second half the driver will also help drive and our pp growth rate so if now

spk_4: in turn off the longer term and opportunity
spk_7: it it will you step back there is just a lot of that we can do to help our customers girl and the way we're going to focus on that and accepted in a couple different way is that for talk about payments perspective we're going to just embedded in almost every way embedded payment which at the name at the data and
spk_3: adding getting warm and web pages in needing a quiet and really back will help us drive adoption is no i'm a road map you will be a guy are adoption in the second part of what i'm excited about in the road map is
spk_4: building a that commerce contact into the m and vice versa that's where the the significant value that the in delaware to our customers
spk_7: by making sure that the comic in a contact with their and every interaction what a marketing or failed that forbid than both of those who are going to open up a huge opportunity for but also it going to enable good for our customers without how we think about the road map and the longer term opportunity tells the payment
spk_26: but i all the point that i'm and we talked about the quality of really strong and the that going really well and we're continuing to invest in turn off all of our strategic miller and focused on driving a world class the arm platform though it and imbalance the new opportunity that the that or that
