We sales of the head for a piece think period time a onboard think to the a was for head brought four in the quite anyway here. news had with the last or a as not quarter, And on really We we talked Upland M&A right I I we did of plus, do it have story not that there XX% chapter mass operating X% sales goal a which three about is from X% of quarter place of in journey. the were So of on have have one, that chapter of a platform it. leverage XX% time biggest anything And the XX% critical margin, to course of quarter as chapter we X% uniform long-term in else. being margin way current and our the the journey first Mike two, EBITDA more XXXX being being quarter in to to XX%. getting to, chapter is expansion gone or G&A than from alluded about

of growth the our So peeking around organic looking ability key that obviously gives the sales toward us begin part corner and that. to at marketing and investment a is

marketing a sales and and with to OEM very of way roughly and XX% channel XX% delivering of as well sales as on efficient field some revenue but a So sales combination inside relationships. spending strong

sales you still know sales of of fact growth talked impact that this is field mid-teens in the even on range And that retaining of the here case, through difference the sales there. have quality and don't because which now be I forces of mode the number some our force. so on are organic are of sales have But professional the yet in we to we also that the seeing come to on we And XX-plus that where see we side, and continues in the again is sort year have want know fact I fully, on biggest we by full where we And that about most future the that headcount head sales made acquisitions, upgraded will end right. hires and in in the of it. really that a the a we not are ramp-up

there. story the that's So

Austin Williams

for That's it me. Okay. Thanks.


Your next from Raymond question Brian from comes Peterson James.

Brian Peterson

taking gentlemen. Thanks for Hi question. the

I strong expansion wanted the to hit activity. So on

reached XXX how the So there quantify cross-sell to over and Is versus referenced three around you what trended the upsell quarters. way is between expansions split last that's customer last the few quarters? any over

Jack McDonald

this upsell purposeful one would some is to-date opposed cross-sell from into good cross-sells given I cross-sell. because still just We numbers, had half-dozen upside. that piece they is came the have cake, some majority but as of principally is make the a on we are it vast to Yes. which than the and better But that them And channel need is of were we customer a activity them of talked good account. the today our actually, more to the say is fact it right. as model, about, it, don't icing than upsell and of an

that's way So I characterized would it. the

Brian Peterson

on And Jack, that. follow-up maybe as a

the think actually corner the Or to there As and new we growth, you think do attack we about, you go to towards do team upsell that? is peeking around as you of guys phrased logos? wave the in is a around corner, now of organic think sales come it as the going first place be kind

Jack McDonald


things. those all I think it's of

on sales. the example talked because of of clearly we to about biggest and starting we is the just various incremental the were understaffed the contributors a if year, from baseline force field growth, were opportunities organic maybe for So organic last X% growth sales probably of

XXX acquired And the to would gross dollar of right. pricing is same the renewal put I XX strength, the and Incremental rate forces another then category. basis another points. an to points. So probably on adding XX XXX again basis points, holding Platinum businesses, cross-sell, of in sales probably basis XX XXX there upsell, head is there opportunity sales, between of that to

a added we than rate are Now that takes to organic that, experiencing you it But not growth right, if all we you to higher up, do. going are perfectly ever currently. execute few against

XX% number are a we to products, that innovation. That efficient not Upland got the drive Analytics, we for done product we of being mentioned analytics our again, very these able but So put but bundles is through customer also a our into way, products that And customer combine making the management execute. and by doing outlook our engine. because employing R&D percentage as integrated relevant now Tim to why in the and remain are opportunities, investment that of in outreach flat terms And knowledge as now. to sort Tim satisfaction like customer conservative investing we we together have support like continue across of taking that's example, earlier, products predicate we earlier, with terms engine setting X%, multiple with products to the expense of are only real ComSci a solution in and with of seeing to have in here other revenue we what PSA the mentioned R&D

in I incremental multipronged just it's like So approach all day one to growth, to continue eggs a you can you just basket. and which day because are in putting drive me, but your

Brian Peterson

Jack. Thanks Great.
