Majority of the sales of software (multi-year usage rights) and devices are recognized as lump-sum sales at the time of sale, but some of the software sales are shifting to monthly subscription. Dedicated database and client support services have already been converted to monthly subscription. Also, ordering platform is charged on a measured-rate basis.
As mentioned above, the Group’s sales composition of is a hybrid of lump-sum and monthly subscription sales. Revenue gained from lump-sum sales are stable due to periodic renewal upon the expiration of the usage period, not to mention revenue gained from monthly subscription sales.
