2020 was marked by the coronavirus. The pandemic has caused huge losses worldwide, but has proved to be relatively kind to our company. The threat related to COVID-19 has provoked an avalanche of new business needs and contributed to the acceleration of the implementation of many technological innovations.
The pandemic did not slow down the rapid pace of our company’s development. The strategy we implement was created in the conditions of the ongoing epidemic and took into account the difficult situation in business and the economy.

In addition, we have started the process of implementing the necessary tools for comprehensive management of the marketing process in the company. We also refreshed brand communication by publishing a new website and creating a communication plan that takes into account various communication streams.
New projects mean new opportunities

We also implement a multi-directional marketing strategy aimed at promoting the initiative and acquiring start-ups for acceleration.
We have provided ScrumEASY, a tool for project management, that will allow us to prove that the Scrum methodology works not only for IT projects, but can be also helpful in areas such as: marketing, HR, banking and event organization. We are currently starting the product commercialization process based on a marketing and sales strategy.
We initiated the formation of a group of software houses. We believe in the strength of Polish programmers, recognized as one of the best in the world, and we trust that they are able to professionally support clients from all over the world. Our partners employ a total of over 200 IT specialists with varied competences and experience. Work on the website of the initiative is currently underway.
