At the end of an exciting year, which for inpro was marked mainly by the implementation of our new strategy FOCUS 25, we would like to say a big thank you to all of our friends, partners and supporters. The strategic decision to increase the focus of our development work on digital innovation has made us faster, more agile and stronger. We were delighted with the positive feedback we received from various sources on our successful transformation. This has created an excellent basis upon which we can continue to build in the coming years. Along with awesome new colleagues and highly motivated and experienced experts, we were able to further strengthen our digital competencies overall. We have also become “younger” and “more international”. This is a very pleasing development.

Our goal for the future remains the development of innovations that will make the processes and products of our customers and associates better and more efficient. Through their development results, our teams have provided the impetus required to drive forward the technologies of our customer organizations, thereby making a key contribution to the future of inpro. In an eventful year in which we also changed or introduced numerous internal processes, this was a particularly outstanding achievement for which all our employees deserve our utmost gratitude. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank those who usually do not have the chance to be at the forefront of project success. There are many of these “helpers” who work tirelessly in the background to make our company successful. This is also important and extremely valuable. Thank you for your contribution!

We were also proud of the fact that our spin-off, COMAN Software GmbH, based in Stendal, was picked by Germany Trade & Invest, the economic development agency of the Federal Republic of Germany, as a lighthouse project which appeared in a film commemorating the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. From inpro’s point of view, this spin-off, which we will continue to support as an associate in the coming years, is a prime example of what we can achieve with our development work.

Merry Christmas and all the best for even more innovations throughout a healthy, happy and successful 2020!
