Bratislava/Prague, February 26, 2020 – The Softec Group announced today that it achieved the highest consolidated sales of EUR 24.6 million last year, which is 22% more than the previous year (last year it was 20.2). It grew the same in the Czech Republic, i.e. by 22%. The success is mainly due to new projects in the banking sector (Czech and Slovak Republics) and insurance industry (Slovak Republic, foreign countries), but also portfolio diversity and increase in the efficiency of the Group. However, the company also experienced positive changes in services for other areas in which it operates, i.e. in telecommunications, public administration, resp. segment of sales of products and services through brokerage networks.
Peter Morávek, Executive Director of the Softec Group: „ Last financial year was again very successful for us. This is also because the market demand for digital transformation solutions – including digital onboarding (note: acquiring a new client without the necessity to go to a branch), which is our long-term concern – has increased significantly. “
