Divante summarizes 2016 – revenue growth of over 34% after three quarters of the year
The Wroclaw company specializing in sales supporting IT positively concludes the year 2016. Divante achievements include widening its technological competences as well as developing projects and cooperation with foreign partners. After the third quarter of 2016, the company generated an increase in revenue of 34% compared to the same period in 2015.
Thanks to developing technological competencies within Magento, Divante implemented a number of comprehensive omnichannel projects that combined PIM (Product Information Management) subsystems, eCommerce, CMS, Marketing Automation and CRM.
Magento 2, which debuted on the market this year, was a challenge for everyone. We made a bold decision to realize all new projects in this technology. This allowed us to quickly launch the first implementations and stand out on the European market. Today, we have completed migrations to Magento 2, both B2B and B2C projects based on the new version of the system. This gives us a substantial technological edge to use in future deployments – says Piotr Karwatka, Divante Vice President and CTO.
In 2016, Divante published case studies showing positive results of business cooperation with clients from Poland (Solar, T-Mobile), Switzerland (Odlo), UK (Linda Farrow) and Sweden (Norstedts). The company was also awarded with a honorable mention for its B2B project for TIM SA at the Imagine Awards gala organized by Magento in Las Vegas. The quality of Divante implementations and its international clients placed the company for the second year in a row in the Global Leader Matrix prepared by Clutch, which is formed on the basis of client references.
As a leader, we must look ahead and set directions. We use the knowledge gained in the competitive market of cross-border eCommerce in the increasing number of implementations for financial customers. In Q4 of 2016, we acquired three customers in this industry for which we will implement CMS, CRM and Marketing Automation mechanisms, well-known in the eCommerce area. The combination of UX, marketing and technology competences puts us in the role of an ideal partner for the digital transformation of the financial industry – says Tomasz Karwatka, Divante CEO.
In 2017 the company will continue its development in overseas markets. One of the new Divante products is Open Loyalty, open software for building loyalty programs and incentive schemes.
Open Loyalty is Magento equivalent for loyalty programs. It has ready-made framework, allowing for quick launch of the project – adds Tomasz Karwatka.
In 2016, the company participated in many eCommerce industry events. Divante managers shared their knowledge at conferences in Poland, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Greece and the United Kingdom.
Due to the dynamic development in the past year, the company also changed its seat. it is currently housed in a restored building in the center of Wroclaw, designed specifically for the needs of the company. Divante enters 2017 with nearly 200 specialists on board, which puts the software house among the largest companies in Europe that implement Magento.
