Bratislava / Prague, March 3, 2021 – Today, the Softec Group announced preliminary results for last year, in which, despite the pandemic, it achieved the highest consolidated sales in history of EUR 30.5 million, which is 24% more than in the previous year. These increased by 20% in Slovakia and by 18% in the Czech Republic. However, the Group recorded an even greater increase for the customers abroad (excluding the Slovak and the Czech Republics) – by 39%. The success is mainly due to the projects in the financial sector related to the impact of the pandemic, i.e. focused on the transition of companies to online and digitalization of services.
All segments in which the group operates, i.e. from telecommunications, through the financial sector, to public administration, or the sale of products and services through brokerage networks, contributed to the overall growth to a similar extent. Abroad, sales were driven by cooperation with the VIG Group with a reach in seven countries. In the Czech Republic, on the other hand, these were projects for Raiffeisenbank, Generali Česká pojišťovna or ČSOB Stavební spořitelna.
Peter Morávek, Executive Director of the Softec Group: „ Last year, although extremely demanding for us as humans, brought us very positive figures. Due to the pandemic, the demand in the markets for digital transformation solutions has increased even more than in previous years. We have also seen great interest in our new digital onboarding services (note: acquisition of a new customer online without having to go to a branch), which are provided as services in cloud environment with a very fast implementation into customer processes.”
