SAN CLEMENTE, Calif.--()--Elevate, Inc. (ELEV.OB), today summarized developments during, and announced financial results for, its fiscal 2012 second quarter ended November 30, 2011. The company reported a 100% revenue growth from Q1 and a 198% growth over the previous year’s Q2. Unit sales grew by almost 800% from the previous quarter, and operational expenditures decreased by 16% in the same time period.

The Company was able to grow revenues and pare down expenditures amid substantial operational expansion that included the formation and launch of its telesales division, and the restructuring of key strategic partnerships.
“September through November is traditionally very slow in the direct sales space, particularly among those who compete with our smart home suite of products,” says Wright Thurston, Elevate CEO. “However, we’ve had a great quarter, and I think it’s because we have been smart about how we expended our resources. We leveraged the viral growth of our referral model and our recently launched telesales division to achieve sales growth without massive staffing, and we negotiated more favorable terms with suppliers and other key partners to drive greater revenue per sale.”
Rod Place, Elevate COO explains, “Many of our competitors were wrapping up sales operations for the season, scaling down their workforce, and going into hibernation until recruiting would begin the following spring. We saw an opportunity to push our business forward when everybody else was taking a break.”
Early in November, Elevate opened sister call centers in Utah and California to process the backlog of job applicants and customer referrals that had begun to overwhelm field sales staff. Shortly after opening the call centers, the Company secured contracts with multiple national lead providers to leverage the centers’ processing capacity.
