How can it be that it’s already time for an end of year mail? With all the exciting things happening at ECS International this year, it feels like 2019 has flown by! From new partnerships to new solutions to new colleagues and new connections, we’ve been busy making digital transformation a reality for many companies across Europe. For our last blog of the year we’d like to share a quick recap of our year and what we’re looking forward to in 2020.
Our 2019 in Numbers:
1 Evolved partnership with iSHARE: Our evolved partnership with iSHARE has been a great addition to our current services as it makes finding, authenticating, and authorizing new digital (data) partnerships easier than ever. Implementing iSHARE into a modern logistics business gets you one step closer to a digital supply chain. We’re about helping businesses work more efficiently every year, and iSHARE was a big contribution to this year’s efforts to do just that. iSHARE was new in 2018 but it’s getting more and more traffic in 2019. The ICT & Logistics trade show in 2019 was a great success and we were lucky enough to exchange thoughts with many of you!
4 New employees joined the ECS family: It has been a busy year and we want to keep the momentum in 2020! We welcomed 4 new family members to help us achieve new heights in 2020 and keep providing you with the best possible experience and solutions. Welcome Hans-David, Dennis, Maja and Michael! Also a warm welcome to our intern Victor who had a great impact on our marketing department in the short time he has been with us!
27 New companies joined the ECS family: We welcomed 27 new companies to ECS International. Bringing our total up to around 1.000 customers who rely on us to keep their digital businesses running smoothly. We couldn’t have done this without our business partners scattered throughout the continent and we want to thank every one of them for their reliability, high-standards and tremendous support.
Our 3 Main Focus Points in 2020:
Growth and Development: We would like to continue our growth trajectory into 2020 while making sure development continues alongside the growth. We’ll be spending more time working with our partners across Europe to implement the new technologies we’ve developed this year and make sure they are all operating on the highest standards we can offer. We put much time into setting up live environments, education and training and we will to continue this with our partners to ensure the customer’s success growth as well.
Ecosystem Integration: Perhaps an even more important topic in 2020, we invested in Cloud, SaaS and TaaS technology in 2019 to make sure that we are always ahead of the curve for our partners and customers. The Cloud will continue to be an area of focus as we make sure that all of the tech and products we provide are available for a Cloud, SaaS, or hybrid deployment. Do keep in mind while the Cloud is the future it doesn’t automatically mean all your data is secure! We will keep on updating our solutions so that we can make sure that security will not be the issue when you move to the Cloud and you can stay ahead of your competition!
New Products: 2020 will start off with a bang as Cleo will be hosting their annual kickoff event during the third week of January. A small group of ECS International representatives will be at the event in Chicago. Cleo is another trusted partner of ECS International and this event will give us a more detailed road map to the solutions they’ve been working on that we can share after the event.
It’s been a year filled with hard work and dedication in our offices and we would like to thank our amazing team for making all the success of this year possible. We would also like to thank all of our customers and the great people we met this year at the various events we attended. We are looking forward to 2020!
Here’s wishing you all a happy holiday season and a successful new year from all of us at ECS International!
