Mark Meller, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of SilverSun, stated, "We continued to realign our resources in 2021 to position our organization to take better advantage of the opportunities available as our customers accelerate their digital transformation initiatives. Towards that end, we divested one ERP practice centered around a legacy on-premise solution, while also establishing a Sage Intacct practice, providing our portfolio with an additional cloud solution with significant growth potential. Similarly, we continue to invest in our Acumatica ERP practice, which we perceive to be a significant catalyst for growth for 2022 and beyond. We believe that both these practices will be mainstays of our ERP organizations for years to come."
Meller continued, "Our IT managed services division, which provides managed services, cybersecurity, application hosting and Infrastructure-as-a-Service, was also realigned in order to enable us to service customers on a nation-wide basis. As data security has become an ever more critical issue for companies both large and small, we believe our services will become in even greater demand. We anticipate rapid growth in this area, and have invested heavily in infrastructure to prepare us for this growth.
"Our operating results for 2021 show continued improvement in our gross margins, which increased as a percentage of revenues to 41.3% in 2021, as compared to 40.2% in 2020. However, we continue to see increased pressure on our selling, marketing, general and administrative expenses as we continue to be challenged by recruitment and compensation issues. The Great Resignation, as the current hiring environment has been labeled by the media, has compelled us to raise compensation levels at a rate faster than we can raise our prices to our customers. As a result, our selling, marketing, general, and administrative expenses rose $482,698, or 3.1%, to $16,122,168 in 2021 as compared to $15,639,470 in 2020. We anticipate that these challenges will continue throughout 2022."
Meller concluded, "The Company is well positioned for success, and we look forward to delivering positive news and results in the coming months."
