Edison's comprehensive report, Building a high-margin, recurring revenue stream, was published on 1 November and examines the investment case for SLI Systems' search and navigation products, which power the website search functionality for some of the world's highest-profile companies, including Jelly Belly, B&Q and Harrods.

The analysis by Tom Grady, an analyst on Edison's Technology team, points to the company's application of cloud-based products that have increased sales conversions for e-commerce sites by making it easier for customers to find products.

The subscription-based model provides a low upfront cost solution for customers, which enables a rapid return on investment. From SLI's perspective, this helps to attract and retain customers, and results in an average two-year payback period due to the initial cost of implementation. Short-term losses will therefore increase as customers are added, but as the client base grows the business should generate a high degree of recurring revenue at high margins.
