Cloud-based SaaS firm Punchtime says it has seen revenues grow 400 per cent in the last 12 months as it makes gains while sticking to its small startup scale.

The company develops a time-tracking app that lets workers clock in and out using a smartphone.

“We are a ‘steady pace wins the race’ kind of company,” says co-founder Christian Desjardins.

This year, Punchtime launched a hardware device called the Punchpad and won the Ottawa Bootstrap Award for best mobile app.

Still to come is the firm’s V2 software and a new funding round later in the year.
