Looking back on 2019 and forward to 2020

The year 2019 is almost done, time for a brief update on our activities this year. Quartess had the most successful year in its history. Our revenue hit an all-time high, with over 30% growth compared to the previous year. New customers, many extensions with existing customers, new employees. Implementations and consultancy in amongst others The Netherlands, Germany, UK, Belgium and Poland. Working very hard, intensive cooperation between Quartess employees and customers and  a lot of travel. By car, by plane, but also on a regular basis by train. 

A big thank you to Quartess employees (and their relatives) who made this possible. A big thank you to our customers, new ones and existing ones for your trust and all the work you have done with us. And a big thank you to our suppliers – Infor, Easy Systems, Portable Intelligence, Tableau, Lillyworks- for your support and cooperation. The sum of all is what makes it possible, I am very aware of that.

In less than 2 weeks it is 2020. Already now we can see that Quartess will continue on its succesful path. Infor Cloudsuite Industrial ERP as multi-tenant cloud application attracts a lot of positive attention in the market place with prospects and independent consultancy firms . New contracts with new customers will be signed in the first month(s) of the year. Cloud is becoming really the ‘new normal’ for manufacturing companies selecting a new ERP. 

Infor Visual ERP is undiminished popular, growth at existing customers including extension to other subsidiaries is already planned for multiple customers both in The Netherlands and the UK. In addition we see that RFPlus, PFM and Easy Invoice implementations are planned, working together with both the Visual and the CSI product. 

Quartess will grow further, I have no doubt about that. New employees will start in 2020. We will go live internally with a new P(rofessional) S(ervices) A(utomation) system of Salesforce based KROW. This will help our back-office to cope with the increasing amount of work. 

On top of this, events are scheduled and planned. Infor Inspire beginning of March 2020 in London and mid 2020 Quartess will bring all our customers from The Netherlands, UK, Germany and Belgium together for the first time in one customer event. We are looking forward therefore meeting you in 2020!

For now however, it is time for family and/or friends. I wish you Merry Christmas and a prosperous and healthy 2020!
