"Within this line, we continue to see strong growth in our payments business, with 9 percent growth for the quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago, and 10 percent growth year-to-date," he said in the release. "Overall, our support and services revenue grew 6 percent for the quarter compared to a year ago."
