Enghouse Systems offers software and services across diverse end markets. The company is structured into two segments: the Interactive Management Group and the Asset Management Group.

ENGH reported a revenue increase of 8.7% in Q3 2023, with recurring revenue expanding by 13.8% to reach CA$ 72.3 million compared to the same period in the previous year. Operating profits demonstrated improvement, achieving a 30.1% EBITDA margin.
