The consolidated turnover of the Czech technology company Cleverlance in 2020 reached the value of CZK 1.375 billion. Compared to 2019, this presents an increase of CZK 148 million; the year on year growth of Cleverlance is then put at 12%. Quite a noticeable EBITDA profit of CZK 167.6 million (compared to CZK 121 million in 2019) was, above all, a result of high demand in the sector of business process digital transformation during the coronavirus pandemic.
The ongoing trend of digital transformation in enterprises, which for many of them became the only means of survival in 2020, is the main factor standing behind the excellent results of Cleverlance. In 2020, Cleverlance was providing help to its customers in these matters by building digital business channels and using their company data to innovate their products and services.
Petr Štros, Cleverlance CEO, comments on 2020 as follows : “Historically, the Czech Republic has been one of the leaders driving changes and new ideas regarding new applications of digital systems. In short, it has always been a trend setter and we intend to keep it that way in the future as well.”
One of the outstanding projects in 2020 was, for example, the new online banking for Bank Creditas together with the overall IT transformation in the bank. The Multichannel solution provided by Cleverlance ensures that the bank’s clients receive a consistent and unified service across all typical online channels such as internet banking, mobile banking, call centre, branch network, external resellers, and other entities as well.
Cleverlance has innovated digital business channels for several of its customers, ranging from Czech and international banks to telecommunications companies and car manufacturers. Clients of Modrá pyramida can now open a building savings account directly in the mobile app, with no need to set foot in a branch. Since the introduction of “lockdown”, those interested in buying a Škoda car are no longer obliged to visit a showroom – they can use the Internet not only for buying newly manufactured cars, but also to select any of the used or stocked cars from the portfolio offered by individual dealers.
In 2020, Cleverlance continued its successful participation in several projects of the “Connected Car” category and took part in the creation of new services enabled by the ongoing digitization of modern vehicles as well as their connection to the Internet.
