| Axon Reports Record Revenue of $131 million; Axon Cloud Grows 42%; Raising Full-Year Revenue Outlook to $500-$510 million|
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Axon ( AAXN), the global leader in connected public safety technologies, today released the following quarterly update letter to shareholders.
Since our August update, we executed on a series of objectives across our product, people, and adjacent markets, and we feel as confident as ever in our strategy and trajectory. We set and delivered on several large goals thus far in 2019 — all with the purpose of driving adoption of our growing software platform, transforming Axon into the leading technology provider for public safety, and serving our ultimate goal of creating safer communities and protecting life.
Importantly, we continue to make substantial progress driving long-term subscriptions. Customers have been rapidly adopting our best-value plans to gain access to more of the Axon network, building upon our historical strength with TASER device and body camera solution subscriptions. Our highest value tiered integrated bundle, for example, of $199 per officer per month over five years, known as the Officer Safety Plan, includes access to a wide range of benefits including TASER 7, Axon Body 3, and a host of cloud services including Axon Records. In Q3 2019, about a third of our total quarterly bookings, which average about five years per contract, were tied to some version of the Officer Safety Plan.
We are thrilled to be approaching year end with a strong market position and powerful operating platform that will support the next several years of revenue and profit growth.
We have a number of positive updates across our product portfolio.
After completing carrier certification with AT&T FirstNet Ready™ and Verizon Responder Private Core, we began shipping Axon Body 3, our latest generation camera, in September, as planned. Axon Body 3's cellular communication, wireless data, and geolocation capabilities are poised to revolutionize public safety workflows. And because the majority of our body camera customers are on a multi-year subscription, we expect the majority of our customer base to automatically upgrade to Axon Body 3 over the next three years as we build upon our unmatched, rapidly growing network of cloud-connected cameras and other devices. The portion of agencies choosing to activate the LTE connectivity built into every Axon Body 3 camera is exceeding our expectations and we continue to drive that forward in support of our future vision, where cameras use real-time signals and AI to automate transcription and automatically feed information into Axon Records.
Axon Records also achieved a critical milestone in September when the Fresno Police Department went live with a full agency-wide Records Management System (RMS) deployment using our cloud subscription service. Cincinnati Police Department has also started using Axon Records for several critical workloads, including use-of-force reporting, and will continue to deploy additional modules throughout 2020 and beyond as part of an agency-wide RMS upgrade to our service. Fresno and Cincinnati PDs are positive reference customers for Axon as we sign new customers and enhance Axon Records' capabilities over time. As a reminder, Axon Records intends to disrupt the law enforcement software category known as Records Management Systems, or RMS, which powers the workloads for writing, storing, managing and sharing official police incident reports. Axon's strategic advantages in this category include our growing network of cloud-connected sensors and our industry-leading cloud SaaS platform, Axon Evidence (Evidence.com), which today is one of the world's largest repositories of data of any type. Cincinnati PD Police Chief Eliot Isaac said, "We are seeing exceptional benefits with how body camera footage can be directly embedded in our use-of-force, officer accident, citizen complaint and other internal reports."
