Time and materials-based contracts represented 95.7% and 95.0% of service revenue for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2011, respectively. Revenue under time and materials-based contracts is recognized as services are rendered and performed at contractually agreed upon rates. Fixed-price contracts represented 4.3% and 2.6% of service revenue for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2012, respectively. Fixed-price contracts represented 2.4% and 2.9% of service revenue for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2011, respectively. Revenue pursuant to fixed-price contracts is recognized under the proportional performance method of accounting. Retainer-based contracts represented 2.5% and 2.6% of service revenue during the three-and nine- month periods ended September 30, 2012, respectively. Retainer-based contracts represented 1.9% and 2.1% of service revenue during the three- and nine- month periods ended September 30, 2011, respectively. Revenue under retainer-based contracts is recognized ratably over the contract period, as outlined within the respective contracts.

Revenue. Total revenue decreased by $(883) thousand, or (3.5)%, to $24.2 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2012, compared to total revenue of $25.0 million in the three-month period ended September 30, 2011. Total revenue increased by $595 thousand, or 0.8%, to $76.6 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012, compared to total revenue of $76.0 million in the nine-month period ended September 30, 2011. With respect to the comparative changes in year-over-year total revenue, service revenue increased by $168 thousand, or 0.8%, and $5.2 million, or 8.9%, in the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2012, respectively. Conversely, software revenue decreased by $(941) thousand and $(2.3) million, in the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2012, respectively.

During the three- and nine- month periods ended September 30, 2012, software revenue totaled $2.0 million and $7.0 million, or 8.4% and 9.2% of total revenue, respectively, compared to software revenue of $3.0 million and $9.3 million, or 11.9% and 12.2%, in the three- and nine- month periods ended September 30, 2011, respectively. Our software revenue is primarily related to our resale of Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP software. We believe that the comparative decrease in 2012 periodic software revenue is the result of extended sales cycles attributable to the hesitancy of customers to launch transformational projects, such as ERP replacement initiatives. We believe this to be directly related to customer concern with respect to uncertainty and instability in the marketplace. Software revenue is expected to fluctuate on a periodic basis dependent upon our customers demand for such third-party off-the-shelf software. We anticipate that revenue generated from software resales will continue to have an influence on our quarterly and annual revenues in future periods.

As a percentage of revenue, SG&A expenses were 31.0% and 31.3% during the three- and nine- month periods ended September 30, 2012, respectively, compared to 26.5% and 31.1% in the comparative 2011 periods.
